This month, I’ll be skydiving back into an adventure that explores the origin of a certain blade. I also have an honourable mention before that.First up, that honourable mention:
– Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin – This is what you get when you take Monster Hunter and turn it into a turn-based RPG akin to the Pokémon games. Form a team with monsters from the series, and uncover the mystery behind the power of a certain Rathalos’ supposed world-destroying power.
July’s Game of the Month takes us to the very beginning of the Zelda timeline, with The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD for the Nintendo Switch. This title was originally released for the Wii, and a lot of people had opinions about. Particularly when it came to motion controls.
My opinion? It was a good game.
The HD update of Skyward Sword does use Joy-Cons for motion controls, but it also offers the options of button controls if you are so inclined. Particularly useful for Switch Lite owners, too.
There are other quality of life enhancements present, too. Apparently Fi might not be quite so… talkative this time around.
The story of Skyward Sword is also where it all begins for The Legend of Zelda, taking place at the earliest point on the timeline. The tale of the Master Sword’s origin is told here, as Link descends from a sky island to below the clouds.
There are dungeons to be explored, items to be acquired and monsters to be defeated, all in HD now on the Switch.
Zelda games are always a pleasure to play, so it is exciting to jump back into this adventure once again.
