The game has been rated by ESRB who has described some of the additions to it. Get the details on them below.
This is an action-adventure game in which players assume the role of Link, a young hero on a quest to rescue his childhood friend Zelda from an evil force. As players explore dungeons and temples, they use swords, whips, boomerangs, and bows to solve puzzles and defeat fantasy creatures (e.g., skeletons, giant spiders, demons). Some ranged weapons allow players to shoot projectiles (e.g., arrows) from a first-person view; players can perform various swords strikes, including a finishing attack: Link jumps through the air to strike creatures and bosses into the ground. The somewhat frenetic combat is highlighted by slashing effects, cries of pain, and colorful splash effects as enemies are hit; enemies usually break apart and disappear in clouds of smoke when defeated. A handful of sequences involve bathroom humor (e.g., a character sitting on a toilet, flushing sounds).
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD will release on July 16, 2021, for the Nintendo Switch.
