Since this year is the 35th anniversary of the "Legend of Zelda" franchise, the creative minds from Nintendo are remaking 2011's "Skyward Sword". This game was originally published for the Nintendo Wii, and was the last major "Zelda" game prior to the remake of "Wind Waker" in 2013 for the Wii-U. Just a few hours ago, Nintendo dropped another trailer for the new game.
Despite being released during the 25th anniversary of the franchise, "Skyward Sword" not only tells the story of a kingdom far above land, but of the very first Link and Princess Zelda.
Interestingly, fans also got a glimpse of the "Breath of the Wild" sequel which has a planned release for 2022. In this planned sequel, Link is portrayed fighting monsters on the Hyrule mainland, as well as the ancient kingdom above. So, this has provoked my own thoughts: will players be returning to the home kingdom of the very first Link? If that's the case, we will get this opportunity twice within the same calender year.
I must confess, I've pre-ordered the HD remake of "Skyward Sword" as a birthday gift for myself. I've never played the original, so I'm looking forward to the story and overall gameplay.
The game is set to release July 16, 2021- just a few months shy of the official tenth anniversary.
Buy my second horror collection here:
"From the author of poetry book Escaping the Summit (2021) comes a new horror adventure. In this collection of poems and flash fiction, readers will get a glimpse of the author's new-found love for the horror genre, as well as his struggle with mental health during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Just a few months after the publication of his first book, author Brandon Skanes has returned with a new collection called Wilson Pike versus the Monsters of Time and Space."
Thank you and stay safe,
