Gameplay and Features

The gameplay of Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD is the same as the original one. Players get to control Link and fight using different weapons like a sword and shield and bow and arrows.

The remastered version offers two control schemes. One of these is the improved motion controls on the Joy-Con that replicates the functions available in the Wii Remote Plus and Nunchuck. The other replicates the usual scheme of the right analog stick to control the sword, which was motion-controlled in the original game.
