The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword HD is one of the most anticipated games of the year for Nintendo Switch fans. It’s one of the publisher’s all-time classics, and the good news is that the release date and time for when it will come out is on the cusp.
Just a day before its launch, reviews are out and most of them are glowing. The reviews roundup shows that the scores mostly sit between eight and nine out of then (or four out of five), and it has largely been praised for allowing fans and newcomers to revisit a magnum opus.
The future of Zelda is bright with Breath of the Wild 2 scheduled for next year, but – before then – it’s time to take a trip down memory lane.
What time does The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword HD come out?
The release date and time for when The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword HD should come out is 21:00 PT on July 15th, 00:00 ET and 00:00 BST on July 16th.
All of the above hours are the norm for first-party Nintendo games as previously illustrated by Animal Crossing, Miitopia, and Pokemon Snap. However, if it doesn’t launch normally, it will be available at 12:00 PT, 14:00 ET, and 18:00 BST on July 16th at the latest (via Nintendo Support).
Nintendo’s digital download size for the game is 8 GB.
This is almost half the size of Breath of the Wild which weighs 15 GB, meanwhile, it is just slightly bigger than Link’s Awakening which is 6 GB. With the game launching very soon, you only have a very limited amount of time left to pre-purchase it.
Pre-order bonuses for the physical edition of the Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword HD come with items ranging from a steelbook to a t-shirt.
As for its price, it is £49.99 to download from the Nintendo eShop and its physical fee is exactly the same.
