The improvements of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD
One of the main functions that the development team has had to focus on is related to control. And it is that we remember that the game has had to include changes in the control so that they are compatible with the Joy-Con (in the same way that it did with the Wiimote of Wii).
On the one hand, it has been sought that players can continue making gestures in the air to enjoy motion control, and on the other, they have also thought of a traditional control for users of the small Switch Lite or those who play in desktop mode they can also enjoy this Link adventure.
But we already knew all this, so the manufacturer has presented a list of official changes with which to get a more exact idea of what we are going to find on July 16.
What’s new in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD
- Optional Fay Help: The spirit of the Divine Sword will only appear in the video scenes and when necessary, but we can also invoke it manually if we need extra help.
- Improved performance: The game now runs smoother (thanks in part to the performance of the Switch) and runs at a stable 60 frames per second.
- Fast forward text: Now we can finally go through the conversations of the villagers and secondary characters more quickly by simply pressing the B button that will lead to the next sentence. No more endless conversations.
- Simplified object information: Tired of the descriptions that appear every time you pick up objects and materials? Now the explanations will only appear the first time you pick up something of that class.
- Skippable video scenes: Now it is possible to skip the video sequences by pressing the “-“ button on the controller.
- Automatic save: In addition to having the classic manual save function, now the game will also be saved automatically so that you do not suffer any unexpected mishap.
- Skippable tutorial dialogss: If you are an expert, jump and avoid the tutorials that serve to introduce the new mechanics of the game to get into action as soon as possible.
In the following official video published by Nintendo you can see all these functions briefly shown in video so you can take a look:
Remember that The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD will arrive on Nintendo Switch on July 16, and it will be an appetizer until we can finally receive the second part of Breath of the Wild, which is scheduled for sometime in 2022.
