Next week sees the release of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD on the Switch. Although it’s only an updated version of a 2011 Wii title, Nintendo has been promoting it non-stop since it was originally announced.
It’s now using the lead-up to the game’s release to promote Link’s classics adventures on the Nintendo Switch Online SNES and NES service. There are a total of three games you can play right now on this service including the original game, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.
Nintendo of America – Excited to soar through the skies of Skyloft in The Legend of Zelda: on 7/16? #NintendoSwitchOnline members — try out some of Link’s classic #NES and #SNES adventures and experience some fantastic firsts while you wait!
As noted in the graphic above, the Nintendo Switch Online service now has over 100+ retro titles to play. Of course, there’s no actual way to play some of Link’s older 3D games on the Switch. In saying this, there’s still a rumour about The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess possibly making a return.
Will you be playing any of Link’s NSO games ahead of Skyward Sword HD’s release next week? What other retro Zelda games would you like to see made available on the Switch in the future? Leave a comment down below.
