Zelda Classics Are Coming To Switch This Year, Says Insider

Zelda Classics Are Coming To Switch This Year, Says Insider

'Twilight Princess' and 'Wind Waker' could be releasing this year on Switch as a bundle.

There are some rumours that just don’t die down, huh? I mean, to be fair, it’s generally because they’re rumours that just make sense - some things are bound to be announced eventually, it’s just a matter of when. “Insiders” gotta cash in on those free credibility points, right? 

The Switch ports of The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker and Twilight Princess are two games that definitely fall into this category. Last year, for Zelda’s 35th anniversary, everyone was absolutely convinced that they’d be announced. But alas, other than Skyward Sword HD and the Zelda Game and Watch, Nintendo confirmed that nothing else was planned in celebration. The dream was dead.

In case you missed it, the Breath of the Wild sequel has been delayed to next year - check out the update below.

But it was never really dead, was it? The HD versions of these two beloved Zelda entries are two of the only major Wii U games that haven’t been ported to the Switch yet, so it’d be criminal for them not to be released eventually. Now, as reported by Wccftech, prominent industry insider and journalist Jeff Grubb has claimed on his podcast, Jeff Grubb’s Game Mess, that the ports could be releasing this year, as a bundle. 

“They want to have a Zelda game every year, and they have been holding onto this, why wouldn’t they just put it out this year,” he said. “And if they don’t put this out or some other Zelda thing this year, instead of just waiting for Breath of the Wild 2, I just will not understand.

“I think that this game [Wind Waker and Twilight Princess bundle], as much as it was a joke in the Megabit 64 video, I do believe it actually comes out in October. I suppose Zelda could come out in September maybe, but they already got some games in September so October still sounds right to me.”

So, that’s exciting, right? Of course, any gamers of culture will have already played these two titles in glorious HD on the Wii U. But everyone else (and anyone ready to revisit them) can hopefully look forward to their release sometime this year.
