Figuring out how, when, and where to strike adds a puzzle-like twist to swordplay. On the go? Soar and slash using button-only controls. You can also use button controls on a Nintendo Switch™ Pro Controller.

Great looking remaster

A definite improvement from the original, visually and game-play wise. I think this game actually portrays the watercolor style that the original game was trying to get across so much better. I actually find myself enjoying playing handheld-mode way more, but the motion controls are of course improved from the Wii's. Still a little unintuitive sometimes but the fights are still fun, but not very challenging. An alright Zelda game so far, and definitely a pretty great remaster. Also for anyone wondering, Fi is definitely not as annoying. You can get through her dialogue much faster and she doesn't interrupt out of nowhere to warn about batteries or hearts.

The game was used but was in working order. I didn't realize that it wouldn't have the case art. I'll have to print my own and put it in the case because it looks like crap. The game itself is okay. It couldn't been an amazing installment of a legendary series but it's kinda so-so because of the wonky motion controls. The flying parts are cool if the motion controls are working correctly.

Nice price used. Not usually the case, but the used version was a decent price. I appreciate that Nintendo added the ability to use the Pro Controller.

Q:
So this originally had motion controls for Wii. will this be compatible for the switch lite since it does not have joycons
Steve llllllllllll1 year ago
A:
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_Lianna1 year ago
A:
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.
