The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword may finally be getting a re-release, according to a listing of a Nintendo Switch port listing of the game on Amazon.
The listing on Amazon UK breathes new life into the long-standing rumour that the Wii exclusive game will be ported to the Nintendo Switch, with pre-orders available for £70. Nintendo has not officially announced a Nintendo Switch port of The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword.
The listing currently includes a release date of January 1, 2030 as a placeholder. The page notes: “This item has not yet been released. You may pre-order it now and we will deliver it to you when it arrives.”

The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword was first released in November 2011 on the Nintendo Wii, and was heavily reliant on the Wii Motion Plus peripheral for sword combat and puzzles. It is likely that a Nintendo Switch port of the game would require significant changes to its gameplay for handheld mode.
