With The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD’s launch inching closer, Nintendo has been dropping new details on additional features and improvements in the game over the original. Many of these details have come via tweets, with one such tweet yesterday showing free camera movement in the game. Now, with another tweet via the official Zelda Twitter, Nintendo has elaborated on that.
Unlike the original game, which was played with a Wii Remote and Nunchuk (and as such, just one analog stick), Skyward Sword HD is going to allow full, free camera control. When you’re playing with the Joy-Cons detached with motion controls, you’ll use the right analog stick to control the camera. Meanwhile, if you’re playing with button controls, which will require the right stick to use your sword, the camera will be controlled by holding down the L button and then using the right stick.
Many other improvements have been confirmed for the game as well, including the addition of autosaves, improved motion controls, rebalanced tutorials, various quality of life improvements, and more.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD is out for the Nintendo Switch on July 16.
