‘Skyward Sword’ comes to Switch and no one’s happy: The funniest reactions
Breath of the Wild fans were really hoping that Tuesday’s Nintendo Direct would give them some long-awaited news on the hotly anticipated Breath of the Wild 2. Instead, we learned that Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is getting remastered for the Switch. And, wow, no one is having a good time right now with that news. From the price to remembering those jankys Wii controls, people are making memes about the release.
We’re betting that if say Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask, or Wind Waker got a re-release people would be feeling pretty differently. (Speaking of? Nintendo? Hello? Chop-chop on all of these getting remastered Switch releases. You did it for Mario! Don’t leave Link out of it.) Here are the best memes about the Skyward Sword Switch remaster.

Anyone else having flashbacks?
Ah yes. The real thrilling Skyward Sword experience on the Switch.
I’m surprised that people are surprised that Skyward Sword is 60 dollars.

Why are you surprised?! It’s Nintendo!
I never played skyward sword, so thanks to Nintendo for doing me, and only me, the solid of being able to play it on switch if I want to, which I might one day

A resounding “meh”
For those of us who never played Skyward Sword, the option is there. Though based on the reactions of people who have played it? …We’re good, bro.
