Published

In the recent Nintendo Direct, Nintendo has revealed that it will be porting The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword to the Switch this year. Zelda’s 35th anniversary came and went (February 21) with only Skyward Sword to look forward to.

However, it seems that the HD version of Skyward Sword is not the only thing Nintendo has planned for the 35th anniversary of the series.

According to industry insider Jeff Grubb, who previously leaked through his own source the remastering of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit and Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville for Nintendo Switch, Nintendo has plans for more releases for the Nintendo Switch. Zelda series this year.

Supposedly, Nintendo only revealed Skyward Sword HD as a marketing tactic, as Mario’s 35th anniversary celebrations are still ongoing and they didn’t want it to overlap with Zelda’s 35th anniversary.

This is still marketing. And Nintendo will want to put The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD up front. This is one of the main reasons why Nintendo didn’t talk about other Zeldas beyond Skyward Sword HD at their latest Video Direct event. The company doesn’t want other Zelda games to distract it from its attempts to retrieve Skyward Sword.

So instead of creating a situation where other Zelda releases on the Switch cannibalize sales that could have gone to Skyward Sword, Nintendo will create a constant cadence of releases to celebrate the series. That will kick off with Skyward Sword HD in July, but we should hear what’s coming soon after this summer.

Mario’s anniversary ends on March 31, which is when they will stop selling Mario 3D All Stars and it will be removed from the eShop.

Nintendo is likely to release Wind Waker and Twilight Princess for Switch. Hopefully, they’ll be bundled together into a single game (and perhaps a third Zelda game to make it a “Triforce Collection”), so fans won’t pay for 2 full-priced games separately, considering how Wind Waker and Twilight Princess got a newer port for Wii U.

So for those who aren’t interested in Skyward Sword or are disappointed that Zelda’s 35th anniversary only includes that game, fear not. We can expect more announcements for the series later this year (E3 Direct, maybe?).
