Posted on September 02 2022 by Andy Spiteri
The year is 2018. After an amazing debut year, maybe the best year in Nintendo history even, the Nintendo Switch is looking to reload its barrels and blast off another great slew of great games for us to enjoy. Industry “insiders” start to claim that the Wii U ports of some classic Zelda games, Twilight Princess and The Wind Waker HD, are headed to Switch. It doesn’t happen. The year is 2019. The Switch is still rolling along nicely. Insiders claim that Zelda is headed to the Nintendo Switch, and that the games in question are definitely Twilight Princess and The Wind Waker HD this time. This turns out to be Link’s Awakening. The year is 2020. Covid has ravaged and delayed game production, no E3 is held, and things are looking bleak. Worry not, insiders claim, because Twilight Princess and The Wind Waker HD are finished games that would be easy to port and help out a dry spell for Nintendo Switch. This is definitely the year. Doesn’t happen. The year is 2021. On the 35th anniversary of the Zelda series, insiders claim that this year, there is no doubt that Twilight Princess and The Wind Waker HD are coming to Switch. That, as we all know, doesn’t happen.
The year is 2022. Once again, like clockwork, we are hearing a new batch of rumors that Twilight Princess and The Wind Waker HD are most definitely about to be announced for the Nintendo Switch, for really real this time. Really. I’m sure you, the reader, can infer where I stand on the likelihood of this occurring, but I want to know: do you still think it’s a possibility that these games are announced shortly? Or have you been burned too many times to give these rumors an credence? Let us know in the comments below!
