Are you all looking forward to the Nintendo Direct later? Of course, you are, and what better way to celebrate than by adding a new game to your Switch library. The deal we’ve got this week is for a game that made quite the impact last year, when Nintendo announced it during a Direct showcase. We are, of course, talking about The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, which is on offer for $39.99 on Amazon US – that’s a massive saving of 33%!
We should point out that this is for the digital version of the game, but that doesn’t take away from the great adventure that awaits. Heck, it might even be a revisit for you if you played the original in 2011. In which case, you know what to expect as you ascend above the clouds, dig deep into dungeons, and solve puzzles on your journey.
As is the case with pretty much any Zelda game, you play as Link, and you’re on a quest to save the lady in question. However, what makes this story so interesting is that it gives you an early look into the relationship between Zelda and Link, showing you how their bond came to be.
If you’re still not sold, perhaps the motion controls will help to seal the deal. You can move the joy-cons, one as your sword, and another as your shield. We also have a The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD review to help make your decision. Check it out to discover why we think “Skyward Sword HD is a delightful adventure for fans of the series and beyond.”
Should you decide to embark on this adventure, we have Skyward Sword bosses and Skyward Sword characters guides to help familiarise yourself with those you meet on your journey. Alternatively, we have a list of the best Switch RPGs if you’re after a different kind of adventure.
