Today, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword returns into the limelight after 10 years. The game initially launched back in 2011 as a title that would be able to make full advantage of the Wii Motion Plus. Coming off the critical success of Twilight Princess, it struggled to capture people’s hearts in the same way as many previous games in the series, but this is its second chance with updated graphics and a new control scheme.
