Contest: Win a The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD Prize Bundle

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

In order to enter this contest, you’ll need to follow us on Twitter and here, follow us on Instagram, with one bonus entry by liking our Facebook page.

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.

    Wow, what a contest! I have only ever watched people play and never experienced Skyward Sword myself so I’m really excited about this release! I love that you can choose between motion control and button control; my son will love that feature! I myself am looking forward to the graphics and enhanced frame rate. Good luck, everyone!

    I’m really looking forward to not having to use motion controls. Game looks awesome and I’m definitely stoked to experience the story. It’ll be next to go back in time before the calamity.

      I’m excited to experience the motion controls again, especially with the new Zelda-themed joy-cons. I played this game on Wii and swinging the remote really gets you immersed in the game.

      I never had the chance to really sink time into the Wii original since I didn’t enjoy the forced motion controls. I’m looking forward to playing this new version with HD graphics, no motion controls, and the other QOL enhancements. Can’t wait!

    I am a huge fan of the Zelda series, but I have never played Skyward Sword. I bought my Switch just to play Zelda games so I’m really excited to play this one. The graphics, story, characters & combat look fantastic. The Amiibo and JoyCon will add to the amazing Zelda experience!

    Definitely excited about the new controls since this is the only Zelda game I haven’t finished because I just couldn’t get over them. By far my favorite series and Link to the Past is my favorite game! Thanks for the chance 🙂

    Super excited to experience the new Zelda for the first time. Switch was the first Nintendo console I’ve ever owned so it’s great to experience these games Ive never played before. (Goldneye1971)
