This, the HD version of the game, promises smoother and more intuitive controls in addition to improved frame rate and graphics. In this enhanced version of the game running at 60fps, you can choose to play using motion control with the two Joy-Con controllers in the same way as the original, or use new controls to buttons only for playing the game with the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller, in handheld mode or on Nintendo Switch Lite.

The game was teased for Switch as early as 2018 by Nintendo’s Eiji Aonuma, series director for The Legend of Zelda. Then last summer, an Amazon UK listing for the game surfaced and was subsequently taken down. Nintendo finally announced that the game will arrive on Switch in February of this year.

All scores below are based on ten being the highest, unless otherwise noted.
