Ever since we can remember, the The Legend of Zelda series has been one of the most popular and most iconic video games. Whether it was back on the old 8-bit Nintendo or one of the releases on other consoles since, taking Link through various obstacles remains to be one of the best challenges.
And, if you’re like us, you’ll be really excited to hear that, according to some rumours overheard from Geek.com, The Legend of Zelda might just be coming to the Nintendo Switch sometime soon, as Geek reports that they’ve heard talks of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword coming to the Switch. See, we told you you’d be excited.
With Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild really raising the bar for modern audiences, the open-world game became the best selling Zelda game of all-time, selling nearly 12 million copies. That’s impressive, and it’s one of the reasons why the gaming mogul is hoping to get another Zelda game into the hands of gamers on the Nintendo Switch, one that’s more traditional than Breath of the Wild.
Here’s what Geek.com had to add about the possibility of the game coming to fruition, based off of overheard rumors.
According to people who attended a recent Zelda concert in Osaka, apparently Zeldaproducer Eiji Aonuma got on stage and said, in Japanese, something like “I know what you are thinking, Skyward Sword for Switch, right?” That sounds pretty definitive. But the sources are still vague, and Aonuma didn’t do, say, or show off anything else so we can’t say for certain what this means.
While that’s not a 100 percent “yes,” it does seem as if the thought has at least crossed the minds of the Zelda producers.
As Geek points out, though, one of the biggest hiccups with the presumed plan may be the desire from gamers for a new Legend of Zelda, as the website points out an interesting fact about Skyward Sword’s “more linear style of Zelda game” being an issue that some gamers wouldn’t be able to get past after playing Breath of the Wild’. That said, any Zelda game is going to perform, and Nintendo knows this.
Who knows when we’ll know for sure about what might happen, but, if the Nintendo Switch does decide to release The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword on the dynamic console, I’d be all for it.
