Ask a Question

Q: So this originally had motion controls for Wii. will this be compatible for the switch lite since it does not have joycons

Steve llllllllllll 5 months ago
Best Answer :

Yes, they have added a button only control scheme so it can be played with either joy cons or the buttons. From my understanding the R stick will control the slashing of the sword.

Q: I know there will be an amiibo of Zelda and her Loftwing you can use on the game, but will other amiibo's have other features? For instance, I have a Ganondorf amiibo and a Twilight Princess Link. Will they do anything in the game?

Zaria_Lianna 1 month ago
Best Answer :

If Breath of the Wild is any indication then yes, each amiibo will give some sort of item or feature whether it be small items like fish or bananas or bigger stuff like exclusive armor sets & weapons. Hopefully Skyward Sword HD will have plenty of stuff available from the amiibo's.

No, it does not. You must go to the gamestop store, with your packing list, which comes with your game, and they will give you the poster.

Q: Can game be played without 'motion'...meaning with just the switch controller/joycon buttons? To old to be swinging my arms around, lol.

Best Answer :

If you watch the Nintendo direct they released in February it's one of the last things the direct talks about. They explain how you can use non-motion controls with the switch lite and hand held mode.

Zelda is my favorite series and this one is awesome! Only problem I had was with the pre-order, it didn't say I had to go instore to get my pre-order gift and now its to late. I'll probably be ordering from other sources in the future because of that.

At the time of writing this, I completed Skyward Sword HD last night, and by complete, I mean did absolutely everything the game has to offer. Total playtime was about 35 hours, and I haven't touched the original game in maybe 6 years. But I played the original Wii game a lot, so I was basically working from memory on a mostly blind playthrough. The addition of the stick controls and other QoL improvements make getting through the first 2-3 hrs of the game much easier. Visually, the game still looks great and runs a constant 60FPS w/ no framerate drops (that I could tell). In my opinion, dungeon design is still some of the best the series has to offer before Breath of the Wild broke away the conventions of the series. Though some of the gameplay between dungeons and the main story is the weaker aspect of Skyward Sword. For example, sidequests can be a bit tedious because many of them are the "fetch quest" type (i.e. someone asks you for something, you go get that something and bring it back, get a reward, rinse and repeat). Despite these flaws, I still had fun with the game and I would recommend this version of the game over the original Wii version, especially if Breath of the Wild was your first Zelda game.

I've been a Zelda fan since the original NES game. Played them all up to the Wii version of Skyward Sword. I tried it for a few hours but couldn't get into the swinging and punching of the Wii remotes. I am thrilled that they remade this game with the option of using a typical controller. The game itself is a 10 on fun factor. If you're a fan of Ocarina of Time (greatest game ever made), then you'll appreciate the structure of Skyward Sword. Its like a mashup of Wind Waker and Ocarina. I'm having a blast!

Probably the best pre-BoTW Zelda game I've played

Back story: I played Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks on the DS first, and they were fun. Then I played Ocarina of Time on the 3DS and it became my favorite Zelda game to date. All of these were WAYYY after their initial release; I'm a late-comer to gaming. I went on to try the Master Quest (OoT) to further challenge myself, and was still working on that when I got Breath of the Wild. Granted, my gaming experience is limited to things like Brain Age, Professor Layton, Katamari Damacy, and Animal Crossing outside of the Zelda franchise (not really into shoot-em-up war games), but BoTW became my favorite game of all time (so far). Going back to OoT was painful. But I have become kind of obsessed with Zelda games, so I wanted to try as many of them as I have platforms for. A Link Between Worlds - very restrictive. Majora's Mask - frustrating. That swim race with the beavers and the water temple are stupid hard for me. Skyward Sword HD has been less frustrating than the others (swimming is much easier than in Majora's Mask), and Link's face is more expressive than in any other game (except toon Link). I see influences between BoTW and Skyward Sword - some of the music is similar, locations are similar, the goddess statues and heart containers are identical to the ones in BoTW, there are bokoblins and moblins (but they look different - the moblins are fat and have nipple rings!), but there are also new-to-me creatures that are fun and interesting. So many dungeons! The Silent Realm trials are stressful, but challenging and still fun after the heart attacks wear off. I was surprised to find that there are no Great Fairies in this game, and that Zelda is not actually a princess in this one! I'm still maybe halfway through the game, and enjoying it, but I still yearn to go back to the world of BoTW and kick some Lynel butt and do more exploring. BoTW has spoiled me on other games.

the increased frame rate really makes it stand out from the wii version, and i love that you don’t have to go through the introduction of every item you pick up anymore! button controls and motion controls are both very easy to use and each have perks of their own. definitely worth the buy (:

Much easier to play this on the switch with the pro controller. Even years later the game is beautiful still. Great dungeon designs and a nice mix of new characters and old.

Cool HD Graphics and Interactive Gameplay. I am playing this on the Nintendo Switch Lite, which may be slightly different than on the full Nintendo Switch. Still one of my favorite games in the Legend of Zelda series. A+

Enjoying it so much more now that I'm not forced to use motion controls. I had not played it since it originally launched for the Wii so it's like a fresh experience and I'm really loving it! I feel like more that I don't have to wave my arm around all crazy that I will be adding this game to my list of all time favorites!
