During last night’s Nintendo Direct, Nintendo announced that The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD will arrive on Nintendo Switch this summer. Those who were disappointed with this news should not worry, because according to two sources, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD and The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD will also arrive on the hybrid console of the Big N in the course of 2021.
The news could be founded, as it would follow in the footsteps traced by the Super Mario collection released on the occasion of its 35th anniversary. In response to a tweet from a user who wondered if Twilight Princess and Wind Waker were worth buying this year, Tom Philips simply said: “See you in a couple months.”
See you in a couple months 🙂

VGC’s Andy Robinson was much more direct though, tweeting that “Skyward Sword remaster, Wind Waker and Twilight Princess are 100% coming this year. So that’s at least one good 3D Zelda.”

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD and the other title, which could be released in some sort of Super Mario 3D All-Stars-like bundle to celebrate Zelda’s 35th anniversary, have been around for a while, so it wouldn’t be too surprising news.
As for new information on the Breath of the Wild sequel instead, producer Aonuma did not talk about it last night, stating that further news will arrive only in the course of 2021, making us presage that the title will most likely arrive only next year.
Nintendo Direct has been stingy for all fans of The Legend of Zelda saga, but we are sure there will certainly be news regarding the 35th anniversary of the series, which will be celebrated in a few days.
As there is still no official confirmation from Nintendo, however, we invite you to take the information on the release of the two new remastered with due care, but on reflection, their eventual release is not so impossible in the end.
