Nintendo Direct: Zelda, Splatoon 3 and everything else announced – CNET

Skyward Sword is coming to Switch.


Nintendo

After a surprisingly quiet holiday 2020 period, on Wednesday announced a roadmap for the next six months of Switch. It was a blizzard of new game announcements, with two headlining reveals. First, a remastered Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will hit the Switch on July 15. Second, Splatoon 3 was announced — but unlike everything else at Wednesday’s Nintendo Direct, it’ll be released next year. 

The show wasn’t absent of Mario either. Mario Golf Super Rush, the iconic plumber’s third golfing jaunt, comes out on June 25.

Skyward Sword was originally released on the Wii in 2011, and in July will come to the Switch with modified Joy-Con motion controls in which the controllers become a sword and a shield. Fret not: You can just play the old fasion way, with buttons. 

Splatoon 3 

A gruff-looking Splatoon 3 is coming to Switch next year. It was the final announcement of the presentation, and the only game shown that’ll come out next year. 

Mario Golf Super Rush

Mario’s third sporting adventure on the Switch, following tennis and the Olympics with Sonic, is Mario Golf Super Rush. It’ll launch in June.
