Hey! Listen! A new listing on Amazon UK has appeared for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for the Switch. Having first been released in 2011 for the Wii, a release on the Switch would be a welcome addition for the Switch’s library. For now, no further details are known. The listing price of £69.99 seems a bit steep, so it’s probably a placeholder.
The UK Nintendo Store list several new wireless and wired controllers for the Switch. The wireless controllers are offically licensed by Nintendo and produced by HORI. Their rechargable internal battery will provide 15+ hours of battery life with a 10 meter range. And while they don’t support NFC, Infared or HD Rumble, they will feature motion controls and cost less than the regular Switch Pro Controllers.
Also featured are three new Nintendo Switch Mini Controllers. These wired controllers are offically licensed by Nintendo and produced by DPD. Featuring a translucent shell these small, ergonomic controllers are designed for players of all ages. They won’t support NFC, Infared, HD Rumble, or motion controls, but considering their price this was to be expected.
