It seems Nintendo is putting a stop the rumors that The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is getting ported to the Nintendo Switch.
During a Zelda music concert in Japan earlier this week Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma greeted fans on stage and potentially teased that the 2011 Wii Zelda game, Skyward Sword, could come to the Switch. Alas the potential tease turned out to be nothing at all.
Speaking to Eurogamer Nintendo confirmed in a statement, "At this time we have no plans to release The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword on Nitnendo Switch." Bummer.
Or maybe not depending on your position. Reception to Skyward Sword is mixed and featured some interesting experiments from Nintendo including motion controls via the Wii MotionPlus, a fractured overworld, and a kind of annoying sidekick character, Fi. If Skyward Sword indeed was coming to the Switch, we have some suggestions for changes.
The Switch launched with a mainline Zelda game with The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword which ended up being our Game of the Year 2017. So, it's not like there aren't any Zelda games for you to play on the Switch.
