While The Legend of Zelda series is rightly remembered for both its importance to gaming history and general high quality over the years, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild really raised the bar for modern audiences.
Zelda Producer Eiji Aonuma may have tipped Nintendo's hand in regards to the next Zelda game heading to Switch. That could be changing at some point in the future, as Nintendo may be planning to bring The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword to the Switch.
"We know what you are thinking, Skyward Sword on Switch, right?"
Will it be second time lucky for Skyward Sword? It looks as though that's about to happen again as Skyward Sword is being teased for release on Switch. Clearly there's a lot of love out there for the game and that makes it an obvious choice for Nintendo to update for the Switch. The game used the Wii MotionPlus peripheral which means that it would be hard to replicate the 1:1 motion that the game requires. Aonuma apparently said without diving into any specific details. Skyward Sword has a very heavy reliance on motion controls which had become a turnoff to many by 2011.
Skyward Sword is already a popular subject for fan experimentation, using the Dolphin emulator - where the game can be seen to polish up very nicely in HD.
Part of the reason for that is the game's controversial motion controls, which were easily the most complex on the system but which some (but not us) complained were too unreliable and imprecise.
