To celebrate the release of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD on Nintendo Switch, we are teaming up with the wonderful folks at Nintendo of Canada to once again give away an epic bundle as only Nintendo can! We’re giving away one (1) bundle to one lucky winner, but we’re going to make this one a bit tougher. We want you guys to answer some trivia, and you’ll have to send those answers to the address below after following us!
We’re impatiently waiting for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD right now, ahead of its July 16, 2021 launch date. We’ll have our review ready by then but in the meantime, you can enter an exciting contest to win some themed prizes!
I have a few reasons why this game should excite you.
- We’re playing the earliest game in The Legend of Zelda – Before the Age of Calamity, before Master Sword came to be, even before the timeline split. This effectively creates the perfect place for newcomers to begin their journey with the franchise and experience the beginning of this long-running narrative.
- The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD improves on the original motion controls found on the Nintendo Wii. Years ago, the Wii Remote and Nunchuk were used as Link’s sword and shield, which is the precursor to the Joy-Cons used today. Using the Joy-Cons feels more natural and offers a better experience. If you prefer sticking to traditional controls, you’re able to do that as well.
- This is a remaster and Nintendo has improved the game to make it shine on the Nintendo Switch. With a graphical upgrade, better and reworked controls, and amiibo support, this is looking to be one exciting upgrade from the original Skyward Sword. I’m sure most of us remember how standard the graphical capabilities of the Wii were, on the Switch, you’re getting HD graphics, 60 frames per second and new, intuitive controls that make the game even better.
So, what does this bundle include?
The Canadian winner will be sent one The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD Prize Bundle which includes:
- A special edition, limited-run Skyward Sword HD puzzle
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD Edition Joy-Cons
- One Zelda & Loftwing amiibo.
Then, either on Twitter or in the comments, we’d love to hear what you’re looking forward to after watching the Quality of Life Trailer above and tell us which improvements you’re most excited about.
