The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Nintendo Switch Release Teased

Rumor: Eiji Aonuma teases Skyward Sword for Switch at Osaka concert

Rumor: Eiji Aonuma teases Skyward Sword for Switch at Osaka concert

Skyward Sword was no exception to that rule, it even required the Wii's MotionPlus expansion device for capturing more complex motions using the Wiimote and Nunchuk.

Additionally, Eurogamer reports that Nintendo is interested in releasing a Zelda game on Switch every year.

From Super Mario Odyssey, to The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild to Mario Mart 8 Deluxe - there are plenty of exclusive, critically acclaimed games.

There's been some rumors regarding a possible Nintendo Switch release of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword based on a little quote from Eiji Aonuma during a Legend of Zelda's concert that took place this weekend in Osaka's Orix Theatre. There's been no official confirmation yet, but a tease from the guy who has been leading the charge on Zelda since Ocarina of Time is certainly intriguing.

He reportedly said: "I know what you are thinking, Skyward Sword for Switch, right?"

His comment apparently met with loud approval but nothing more was said. Once you grew used to those motion controls, however, Skyward Sword cemented itself as another solid entry in the series. If a Skyward Sword port to Switch is indeed in the cards, it looks like we're waiting on Nintendo for more details. Massively praised even relative to its own series, Nintendo's stab at an open-world game is now the best selling Zelda game at almost 12 million copies sold. The Switch's Joy-Con might be the answer to our prayers thanks to its ability to mimic the motion controls that were present in the Wii days.

Still, there are a couple reasons for Skyward Sword fans to be optimistic.
