12 Biggest Changes In Zelda: Skyward Sword HD


With the recent release of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD on the Nintendo Switch, we’ve rounded up all the biggest and smallest changes we could find between the new HD remaster and the Wii original.

After Wind Waker HD and Twilight Princess HD changed a few things from their original releases, it was safe to assume Nintendo would do the same with the announcement of Skyward Sword HD in the February 2021 Nintendo Direct. But what exactly was changed? Well, we played both games to 100% completion and put them side by side to try and spot as many differences as we could, big and small.

Some of these changes include button controls for the entire game, brand-new camera controls, a new autosave system, character names added to text boxes, amiibo functionality, and a bunch of others, but you’ll have to watch the video to see everything. So stop reading this description and go do that if you haven’t already.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD is now available for the Nintendo Switch. Alongside the game, Nintendo released a pair of Joy-Con controllers themed after the Master Sword and Hylian Shield, and a Zelda & Loftwing amiibo figure.
