So between planned leaks to notable influencers, super-detective work involving domain registrations and straight up desire/rumour, the old retail listing (usually with accompanying art) has always been a go-to for more credible 'sources'. The reason being, major retailers are brought into the loop super-earlier in a release year as there are lots of cogs to be greased to get it all moving.

And today major retailer Amazon and its UK branch may have given us a link to a Wii remaster coming to Switch.

As reported by NintendoEverything Amazon's UK site has a listing for Skyward Sword (Switch) which still hasn't been removed since being discovered, adding a bit more credence to the 'news'. The site also suggests recreating that game's motion control on Switch would be a nightmare, which was commented on by the series' key producer, Eiji Aonuma. But nothing says Ninty didn't seek out a studio capable of, and keen to, do the "almost impossible".

No details beyond the game's title exist in the listing, but it's there. And personally I'd love this as this was one Dan got to review back in the day and I still haven't played it.

We'll update you if anything changes here.

Australian gamers had to endure an extra week's wait behind our usual PAL region pals in Europe, but the long awaited The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is now available locally for the Nintendo Wii, offering one last big hurrah for the console before the company's focus switches to the Wii-U and a possible reason for dormant Wii-owners to consider dusting off their Wii-Remotes.

We're unfortunately a bit behind the international press on this one as Nintendo Australia were only able to get the game to us this week. So as a result, we're well aware of the grand acclaim this game has been met with elsewhere.

But do we think all of the praise is well deserved? The answer is: somewhat, but not the golden pedestal some have placed it on. Read our in-depth review to find out why.

"Note that the golden Wii Remote Plus will simply be golden in colour and will not contain any actual precious metals." This is actually in the press release; I love it.

Real gold or not, Zelda fans will want to check this out:
2011 is the year of Zelda with Nintendo celebrating 25 years since the beginning of the critically-acclaimed franchise. The Legend of Zelda was first released on the Nintendo Entertainment System a quarter of a century ago this year, and to help celebrate this occasion Nintendo are releasing a special limited edition bundle for the latest instalment in The Legend of Zelda franchise, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

The special limited edition bundle features a copy of the game, the music CD featuring selected songs from The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony, and a rare golden* Wii Remote Plus controller bearing the Hylian Crest.
The bundle is apparently a "limited edition", but it doesn't state what the limits are - so keep yours eyes peeled.
