Producer Aonuma Comments Spark Rumors of ‘Skyward Sword’ Switch Release

Rumor: Eiji Aonuma teases Skyward Sword for Switch at Osaka concert

The Nerd Mag reports that during a recent Zelda concert performance at the Nintendo Live event in Osaka, Japan, series producer Eiji Aonuma took to the stage and said "I know what you're waiting for - Skyward Sword for Switch".

Aside from getting the crowd to clap and cheer, it probably suggests we could see The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword on the Nintendo Switch soon.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword was originally released on the Wii in 2011 and was the second Zelda title on the platform following Twilight Princess.

Skyward Sword has, with the passing of time, developed a bad rap among some fans for what is perceived to be a huge emphasis on motion controls.

One has to wonder whether Nintendo would keep a similar control scheme or go back to a more traditional one in porting Skyward Sword to the Switch.

The Wii U is rapidly running out of games to be ported to the Switch, but it seems Nintendo may have found a new source of remaster-able games... on the Wii.

His comment apparently met with loud approval but nothing more was said. Due to issues with the Wii Motion Plus peripheral that it would use, the game was nearly scrapped in development. While the Switch's Joy-Con controllers still support motion controls, it isn't really the core focus that it was on the original Wii.

Still, there are a couple reasons for Skyward Sword fans to be optimistic.

Part of the reason for that is the game's controversial motion controls, which were easily the most complex on the system but which some (but not us) complained were too unreliable and imprecise.
