The legend of the zelda sword to the sky for Nintendo Wii it was originally built from the ground up for motion controls.
As a result, there is a lot of swing involved, and well, if you played in 2011, you might remember that it was quite a workout. Some players also encountered a number of issues: motion controls did not always work as expected and certain actions were not always recorded during the most crucial moments of the game if the movements were not executed correctly.
Fortunately, the HD version of the game coming to Switch is ah …changing things, by allowing players to use a more traditional control method, also known as. button and analog inputs. Although Nintendo made this pretty clear during the recent game reveal, they are now spreading the word about this new control option, which doesn’t just mean that you can now play this game on the go (and on a Switch Lite, for that matter) but it also makes it much more accessible.
In addition to the button-only control system, Skyward Sword on the Switch will also come with improved motion control support thanks to updated technology in the Joy-Con controllers. The right controller wields Link’s sword, while the left controller wields his shield. As in the original game, you can also perform other actions with movement controls such as shooting Link’s bow and arrow.
