Switch blast: Zelda – Skyward Sword HD currently very popular

Nintendo’s start into the game year 2021 was rather sluggish. The number of real Switch hits was limited – but that should change in the second half of the year. But which game for the handheld console is currently particularly popular? A look at the overview on Idealo reveals: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD is particularly popular with Switch players at the moment.

The remaster of the now 10-year-old Zelda classic for the Wii was released on July 16, 2021 for the Switch. In addition to increasing the resolution and frame rate, the developers also made some other interesting changes to the game. For example, the camera can now be moved freely, item hints are only displayed when an object is picked up for the first time and even an auto-save function has been implemented. The complete overview of the changes can be found with our colleagues at spieletipps.de.

Silver and bronze go to two long-running Switches

Placements 2 and 3 are also particularly interesting. Instead of new games like Mario Golf: Super Rush or Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, there is actually a crack Animal Crossing: New Horizons the silver medal under the nail. Bronze goes on Mario Kart 8: Deluxe, which is now around 4 years old.
