Skyward Sword HD launch trailer builds up excitement for Friday release

Skyward Sword HD launch trailer

With just two days to go until launch, Nintendo has released a launch trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD. Most of the moments featured in the Skyward Sword HD launch trailer will be familiar to those of you who have already played it, but if you’re interested in playing the game, now is definitely the time. Over the past few weeks, Nintendo has been sharing a ton of information regarding the game’s quality-of-life improvements, such as skippable cutscenes, alterations to the opening moments, and most recently the addition of full camera control.

Reviews have started to appear for the game, with the reception so far being mostly positive. Our review will be available sometime in the next few days, so stay tuned to read our thoughts on Link’s first canonical adventure. Friday cannot come soon enough, and I’m really excited to return to one of my favorite video games.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD launches on July 16, 2021, alongside the Zelda & Loftwing amiibo and limited-edition Joy-Con controllers, offering us something to survive on while the wait for the Breath of the Wild sequel continues. Has this Skyward Sword HD launch trailer got you hyped for Friday? Let us know down in the comments down below.
