According to one insider, some older classic Legend of Zelda titles will be making their way to Nintendo Switch. Zelda fans can get excited about the possibility of Zelda HD remasters coming at a later date.
Yesterday, Nintendo announced a ton of new titles at their Nintendo Direct event. Amongst them was an HD remake of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.
Although perhaps not the Zelda title fans were expecting to see, one insider has confirmed that new Zelda HD Remasters will be coming at a later date. According to new information, fans can expect to see some surprises.
The Legend of Zelda HD Remakes
An industry insider has confirmed that Nintendo will be releasing two very popular Zelda HD Remasters. Apparently, the new HD remasters will be set to release at some point this year.
If you missed the February Nintendo Direct, you can check out our coverage here for a full rundown of everything that was announced. Interestingly, an HD Remaster of Skyward Sword was one Zelda title to make an appearance.
Skyward Sword is a controversial game in the Zelda series in part due to its poor control scheme. The response from some Zelda fans was not met with too much excitement.
Furthermore, it is currently the 35th Anniversary of The Legend of Zelda series and fans were expecting some big announcements from Nintendo. Notably, gamers were expecting to hear news about Breath of the Wild 2.
Unfortunately, during the Nintendo Direct fans were only informed that development is continuing for the next Zelda installment and new info would be coming later this year.
Consequently, fans were not blown away by the Skyward Sword reveal and some were hopeful for more adrenaline-pumping Zelda-themed surprises.
Now, however, an industry insider has confirmed that two classic Zelda HD remasters are coming to the Nintendo Switch. This should help to alleviate the underwhelming atmosphere hanging over Zelda fans.
Zelda HD Remakes Coming To Nintendo Switch
Allegedly, two of the most popular Zelda titles are making their way to Switch, according to new information. Industry insider Andy Robinson confirms that two titles are currently in the works, scheduled for this year.
The Zelda titles set to make a return appearance are Wind Waker and Twilight Princess. According to Robinson, the titles are “100% coming this year, so that’s at least one good 3D Zelda”.
Interestingly, this also aligns with another Zelda leak that we talked about last week. It appears that the rumors are true and Nintendo does plan to release two Zelda HD remastered games.
Zelda fans can get excited about the possibility of two popular Zelda HD remasters coming to Switch. Robinson was also the original source who correctly predicted the Super Mario Anniversary collection.
It is important to remember that Nintendo has not officially confirmed whether these rumors are true. However, it is extremely likely due to the confidence in Robinson’s tweet.
Take a look at the tweet below to see exactly what has been said about the new Zelda HD remasters:
It could be that Nintendo plans to announce a special Zelda-themed Anniversary collection, as they did for the Super Mario All-Stars collection.
Furthermore, the Zelda HD Remaster games would likely feature updated control schemes. Skyward Sword HD will feature a vastly improved control system so the games may feel much more satisfying to play.
Finally, If you missed the announcement, there are more Nintendo titles to look forward to. Splatoon 3 was announced yesterday and fans are already over the moon.
If you enjoy fighting games, Super Smash Bros Ultimate’s 79th fighter has been revealed. Pyra and Mythra from Xenoblade Chronicles 2 are the latest fighters to join the roster.
