Zelda fans may finally be getting their wish. According to Stealth, an influencer on Twitter, Wind Waker HD and Twilight Princess HD are coming to the Nintendo Switch eShop. It is unclear at this point whether or not there will be a physical release for these Zelda classics. If this rumor pans out, and from all accounts, it will (though we should still regard it as a rumor), we will have four Zelda games coming out in the foreseeable future: the Link’s Awakening remake, A Link to the PastTwilight Princess HD, and Wind Waker HD. Nintendo is finally taking advantage of Zelda’s growing popularity after Breath of the Wild, introducing classic Zelda games to a new generation.

Stealth has always been reliable and wouldn’t post this unless he believed this was legitimate. We should still take it with a grain of salt, as it is a rumor, but it would make perfect sense for Nintendo. These are two of the greatest Zelda games of all time and the HD versions came out for the Wii U, which underperformed and many gamers didn’t have the opportunity to experience these games in their true splendor. It makes perfect sense for Nintendo, and way overdue. If it comes out in the same vicinity of Link’s Awakening, almost all of the classic Zelda games will be available on the Nintendo Switch. One can only hope this is the case. All they need is Ocarina of TimeA Link to the Past (which is already rumored to come to the system after a leak from Best Buy), and an HD version of Skyward Sword.

It’s an exciting time to be a Zelda fan!
