    [​IMG]
    It says something like :"Get ready for a lot of Actions this summer"

    But why is there a F-ZERO ????

    Why would there be a new F-Zero with the same Logo and Name as the original on the SNES? It's just VC for Wii U and 3DS

    Thats still not a reason for the EXACT same name and logo as the original. If there would be a new F-Zero they wouldn't put it on My Nintendo and not delete it. It's also with Zelda Oracle of Seasons/Ages and other VC games.

    So no Switch F-Zero for now.

    @WiiUBricker It should be the VC version of Skyward Sword on the Wii U.

    Skyward Sword would work on Switch as well as the game didn't use the sensor bar on Wii... or maybe it did for recalibrating... anyway Switch has to recalibrate differently and constantly (see World of Goo reviews).

    Errr... It used the sensor bar to point in the menus, and to aim with the bow...

    A Wii game on Switch VC... interesting. I would get TLOZSS.
    Now they only have to release the original Xenoblade so I buy it yet again, and I would do it gladly.

    Maybe they will reprogram it to allow for the right control stick to do this. Or that could be hoping too much.

    It actually didn't when it was properly calibrated. You could even unplug the sensor bar and still point at things.

    You could not use the bow with the help of the sensor bar. Not at all. Not even an option.
    I'm just not sure whether it used it for recalibrating.

    Not really. After you calibrated when starting playing, you could disconnect the sensor bar, since menu selection and bow actions were controlled by the gyro motion of the Motion Plus, and not by pointing to the sensor bar.

    If you have the game, go, try this.

    EDIT: I'm sure since I had to disconnect my sensor bar for sharing it with another Wii my family used, nearly every time I played, but I continued playing the game non-stop without issues.

    How did you come to the conclusion that it's on the Switch?

    Sadly, it doesn't, as SMG never used Motion+

    You actually could for Skyward Sword as Motion+ would take over the bow aiming without needing the Sensor bar at all.

    Now if you're thinking of Twilight Princess, yeah you had to have the sensor.

    I'm talking about Zelda: Skyward Sword.

    Why do you comment about Mario Galaxy? (That's what I get from SMG).
