The news comes from the The Legend of Zelda concert which took place in Osaka earlier today [via MyNintendo], with many attendees saying that Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma teased the upcoming release to the shocked audience.

Skyward Sword definitely isn’t the most popular game of the Zelda franchise, but that’s mostly down to its somewhat-unresponsive control mechanics.

Originally released on the Wii, lots of players found it much easier to play without the motion controlled Wii-motes, which tracked your movements for “precise” sword use.

It’s now been seven years since the game released on the Wii though, so maybe that means the Nintendo Switch’s JoyCons are going to be better-suited to the title…?

The news, which only broke in the last couple of hours, has yet to be confirmed by any Nintendo or Zelda reps, and as of yet, there’s still no translation of what the cryptic tease actually said.

Personally, I’d love to have a crack at Skyward Sword on the Nintendo Switch!

What do you think about the news? Would you pick up The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword for the Nintendo Switch?
