Nintendo Outline Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD's Quality Of Life Changes

We're two weeks away from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD's launch and in preparation for that, Nintendo's outlined some quality of life improvements over the original edition. Having previously announced several changes through the official website, they've given us a better look at what to expect.

Notably, that includes making Fi's help optional and now, she'll only appear in cut-scenes or through manual summoning. Framerate has been boosted to 60fps, you can now fast forward dialogue by holding down the B button, while cutscenes and tutorial dialogues are both skippable.

Furthermore, Nintendo's also implemented an autosave option, though manual saves are still available. Individually, these might not seem like big updates, but that's sure to make Skyward Sword a much smoother experience. You can see it all in action below.

While we're not getting any further 35th anniversary releases beyond Skyward Sword HD, series producer Eiji Aonuma advised during Nintendo's E3 presentation we'll have more Zelda to look forward to. While Part 1 of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity's upcoming expansion just launched, there's also plans for a Zelda Game & Watch this year, and we got a new Breath of the Wild 2 trailer.
