The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and Twilight Princess Are Coming to Nintendo Switch This Year – Rumor
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD is apparently not going to be the only entry in the series that will be released on Nintendo Switch to celebrate the franchise's 35th anniversary.
According to VGC's Andy Robinson, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and Twilight Princess will also release on Nintendo Switch this year.
The conveyer belt of Mario ports have totally converted my young daughters the past few months, so I'm really looking forward to introducing them to Zelda this year.

Andy Robison isn't the only one that has talked about the two The Legend of Zelda games originally released on GameCube and Wii, as Eurogamer's Tom Philips has also hinted at a The Wind Waker Switch release.
See you in a couple months 🙂

As much as we all complained about Mario All-Stars, we also all bought it.
Looking forward to Wind Waker being available on Switch for six months and knowing I only have myself to blame.

Both The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and Twilight Princess already received an HD treatment on Wii U, so it's not impossible that these updated versions of the game will make their way to the Switch in the future. As of now, however, we have to take their upcoming release with a grain of salt.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD has been announced during yesterday's Nintendo Direct. The game will feature some visual improvements as well as new control options that will let players enjoy the game without motion controls. The game launches on July 16th worldwide.
Originally released in 2011 for the Wii system, and depicting the earliest story in the series’ timeline – as well as the creation of the Master Sword itself – The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword game now arrives on Nintendo Switch with smoother and more intuitive controls, in addition to improved framerate and graphics.
In this enhanced version of the game, running at a smooth 60 frames per second, you can choose to play using motion control with the two Joy-Con controllers in a similar way to the original, or use newly added button-only controls to play the game with the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller, in handheld mode or using a Nintendo Switch Lite system.
