Play 'The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword' on Wii U today

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is available to purchase and download on the Wii U via Virtual Console today. This is the original version of Skyward Sword with no remastering or updates, Nintendo announced during its 3DS-focused livestream this morning.

The Zelda franchise celebrates its 30th anniversary this year and Nintendo is bringing the presents: Special Zelda Amiibo hit stores shelves this winter and a new art book about the series from Dark Horse Comics is available for pre-order now. The Amiibo function the same as the Super Smash Bros. Link and Zelda figurines, and they’ll unlock special functions in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which lands on Wii U and Nintendo’s new console, the NX, next year.

During today’s livestream, Nintendo revealed a handful of games heading to the 3DS, including Wii U titles Yoshi’s Woolly World and Super Mario Maker, plus new games like a 3DS-only Pikmin adventure. Nintendo is quietly phasing out the Wii U before it launches the NX, while the 3DS is still going strong. The company recently revealed the New Galaxy Style 3DS XL, a version of the handheld that’s covered in deep purple swirls and cosmic dust.
