Skyward Sword is coming to Switch.


Super Mario 3D World launched last week, so what's next for Switch owners? A lot. On Wednesday Nintendo announced a roadmap for the next six months of Switch, 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. 

You can rewatch the entire 50-minute Nintendo Direct on YouTube here. Scroll down to see all of the big trailers from the keynote.

Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD

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 fashioned 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.
