Though we didn’t learn anything about the next game in the series, the February Nintendo Direct revealed that The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword would be coming to Nintendo Switch with an HD port this July. To commemorate the release, Nintendo also announced new Skyward Sword themed Joy-Cons that will launch on the same day as the game in July.
The new Skyward Sword HD themed Joy-Cons are both blue, one a lighter color (left) while the other is a bit darker (right). The right Joy-Con includes the iconic triforce, as well as some stylized design around the analog stick and buttons. On the left Joy-Con, we see the Royal Crest, with similar designs around the stick and direction buttons. The Joy-Cons play a big role in Skyward Sword, as players will use motion controls to use the sword and shield.
The Joy-Con strap features white plastic, with blue colors woven together. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD Joy-Cons will be available alongside the game later this year on July 16. We've got more coverage of today's Nintendo Direct right here on Shacknews for you.
