    Guys I'm looking for some advice. Never played this game but I'm collecting all the 3d zeldas. Should I buy the wii version to play on my wii u, or are chances high that it will be revamped for a switch release? I strongly prefer HD, but I fear it won't be remade because the game was controversial for it's motion controls. What do you guys predict, and whaddya think I should do?

    Invest in a strong PC gaming rig so you can play it in HD on Dolphin emulator. At least thats more guaranteed than hoping and wishing for Nintendo to do it.

    I don't see a remake coming anytime soon. If at all, I'd see it coming towards the end of the Switch's lifespan, unless there's something technically I don't understand which would make it a very easy port to the Switch. I can't see Nintendo spending many resources trying to support their brand new console with old ports, save for when the Switch is basically riding pretty in retirement and they have the room to stop trying as hard with it.

    If your even asking this question I would just look into Dolphin right now. Its the only emulator that really goes above and beyond what the original systems are meant to do.

    Never played Skyward Sword too but I don't see it happening, Nintendo will have to change the mechanics of the game in order for it to work in handheld mode without motion which makes no sense since Skyward Sword was a Zelda game built on motion plus controls.

    That will be great if they remove that shitty motion controlls, Skyward Sword is a great game.
    But after some time off playing I get really sick off those motion controlls.
    I want to play my games with a controller, lazy on the couch with some good beer.

    It does, but there's no way to emulate the Motion Plus in current builds, so you need a real Wiimote with Motion Plus (integrated or not, it doesn't matter), unless something has changed very recently on that front.

    Thats awesome and more than enough. Cant guarantee you will get max settings but you will get the game running for sure. Try to invest in a stronger GPU in the future.

    And you'll need to get a Wii Remote Plus and a BT adapter that doesn't suck to use it with.

    A high-def remaster might not happen anytime soon but Nintendo might release it to the VC with Joy-Con support. I'd buy it digitally just because of the Joy-Con support and that I've yet not gotten around to play it on the Wii (using AA batteries is kind of a deal-breaker for me).

    hold on I was wrong I'm not an expert on it, my older brother gave it to me. It's this cpu: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103471

    AMD Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition Deneb Quad-Core 3.0 GHz Socket AM2+ 125W HDZ940XCGIBOX Processor

    8gb ram
    nvidia 560 gpu
    intel and crucial ssd drives like 120gb or so, plus lots of normal HD space

    Do you think the joy-cons will make the motion controlling more accurate than it did with Wii remote plus?

    I think the game itself was just fine but having to realign the sensors every 5-10 took out my enjoyment for it.

    I would just use CPU-Z, its a much better and more accurate way to determine what your PC specs are if you arent sure of the parts inside it. Regardless, you should just get Dolphin and try out the game.

    If the motion puzzles in BotW are anything to go by, then not at all.

    The motion puzzles on BotW were fine, they just too a little practice to get the hang of it but they were fun anyhow. Joy-Cons would for sure improve the gaming experience of Skyward Sword.
