The optimized HD version of the classic has been adapted and redesigned in some areas. There is optional help from Phai, which only appears in video sequences - or when your help is necessary. Players can still manually summon them if they want their advice.

The higher frame rate will be directly visible. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD runs at a frame rate of 60 fps to enable a smoother gaming experience. The new ability to fast-forward the texts in the game by pressing the B button also brings speed to the game. Video sequences can also be skipped, just pressing the minus button is enough. And: The tutorials introducing the game have also been revised and are more subtle.

Explanations of collected items such as insects and materials appear the first time players find them during their adventure. The automatic saving, which records the game progress without any action, is particularly practical. In addition, players have the option to save manually via the menu.

With these enhancements, Link's journey will shine in new splendor when The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD hits Nintendo Switch on July 16.
