As you all know, next week The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD will be released on Nintendo Switch. It’s a high-definition remaster that includes some new features, such as the ability to play with classic control (buttons), in addition to the motion control that was present in the original Wii version.
As usual in these cases, Nintendo is pulling out all the stops to promote this title. Well, Nintendo of America is using the days leading up to the game’s release to promote Link’s classic adventures on Nintendo Switch Online’s NES and SNES service. All subscribers to the paid online service have a total of three games from the series to play, including The Legend of Zelda, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.
Here is the message and image shared:
