About this item

Solve puzzles, explore dungeons, and soar the skies 

Descend from the sky to the dangerous world below in this high-flying quest. Your adventure will lead you through perilous dungeons packed with puzzles. Each item you receive will open up even more adventure—uncover a hidden area with the flying Beetle or find a clever way to hinder enemies with a whip. Whether you are scouring for secrets, getting in some sword practice, or upgrading equipment, forge your own path in the Legend of Zelda™: Skyward Sword HD game. 

Master realistic swordplay that corresponds to your movements 

Gently swing your sword and angle your slashes to break through opponents’ defenses using intuitive motion controls. Link’s in-game movements will correspond to the angle of each strike you make with the Joy-Con™ controller, creating immersive swordplay that relies on strategy and accuracy. Figuring out how, when, and where to strike adds a puzzle-like twist to swordplay. On the go? Soar and slash using button-only controls. You can also use button controls on a Nintendo Switch™ Pro Controller. 

Discover the origin of Link, Zelda, and the Master Sword 

Join Link in his emotional quest to save Zelda, a childhood friend who must confront her destiny. Their special bond at the heart of the story is the world’s best hope for defeating the encroaching darkness—and its power that will echo through the ages. Embark on a destiny-defining quest to overcome ancient trials and forge the powerful Master Sword. The many residents of the floating island and Link’s home, Skyloft, have colorful personalities that shine as you help them with their troubles. Make sure to stop by Beedle’s shop, but keep an eye on the troublemaking Groose…
