Walmart has The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD (Nintendo Switch Digital Download) on sale for $40.73.

Thanks to Community Member beezleb for finding this deal.

About this Game:
  • Join Link in his emotional quest to save Zelda, a childhood friend who must confront her destiny. Their special bond at the heart of the story is the world's best hope for defeating the encroaching darkness—and its power that will echo through the ages. Embark on a destiny-defining quest to overcome ancient trials and forge the powerful Master Sword. The many residents of the floating island and Link's home, Skyloft, have colorful personalities that shine as you help them with their troubles. Make sure to stop by Beedle's shop, but keep an eye on the troublemaking Groose.
  • Descend from the sky to the dangerous world below in this high-flying quest. Your adventure will lead you through perilous dungeons packed with puzzles. Each item you receive will open up even more adventure—uncover a hidden area with the flying Beetle or find a clever way to hinder enemies with a whip. Whether you are scouring for secrets, getting in some sword practice, or upgrading equipment, forge your own path in the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD game.
  • Gently swing your sword and angle your slashes to break through opponents' defenses using intuitive motion controls*. Link's in-game movements will correspond to the angle of each strike you make with the Joy-Con controller, creating immersive swordplay that relies on strategy and accuracy. Figuring out how, when, and where to strike adds a puzzle-like twist to swordplay. On the go? Soar and slash using button-only controls. You can also use button controls on a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller.

Objectively the worst Zelda. The game was made by 3 separate teams (one in house, one from another major triple a, one indie style team), each focusing on 1/3 of the game and spliced together to make the least cohesive game of the series. It's extremely buggy and repetitive with horrible controls. It also has the least entertaining world map making exploring a choir.

I'd highly recommend to skip this one, or at least don't expect a lot compared to any other Zelda game. I'd even prefer Zelda 2 over this.
I have to respectfully disagree. Big fan of its original release and think this port made it even better. They cleaned up a bunch and sure map exploration may be repetitive with the flying, but this surely isn't the worst zelda. Plus, the story may hold an importance to BOTW2. This is the very beginning of the zelda lineage
I have tried to play this games several times on the switch. Couldnt get past the controls each time. Controls are so counterintuitive and I have tried motion control and refular.

This is coming from someone who has beaten EVery console zelda, and about half the portable/game boy zeldas.

Many can get over the controls but I jusr couldnt do it.

Was going to get this for the nephew, since he liked all the other Zelda releases for Switch... but now on the fence. I know it won't be BOTW quality, but is it truly worth skipping?? Thoughts?

It's to each their own, I mean do you really think if the game was as bad as he says it would have gotten an HD remake for the switch? I feel like Zelda games are all subjective. I'm a huge fan of the top down view ones since I grew up playing them on the gameboy, but BoTw so far has been one of my favorites, hard really to top botw they really went all out

Bought this a few weeks ago (one of the few Zelda's I haven't played) and the controls were just so awful I couldn't do it.

Wonderful game on the wii and even better remastered on the switch(especially in handheld mode with the OLED model). I will say that I did turn off motion controls because they are a little finicky and you constantly have to re-center your joy cons but overall I love this game(this was my very first collectors edition when it came out on wii) so I would definitely recommend this one

I liked the game overall, but it's very linear. Personally I am glad I played it via cartridge so I could trade it in afterwards.
