Skyward Sword may be considered one of the more divisive entries in the Legend of Zelda series, but that hasn’t stopped the announcement of its upcoming Nintendo Switch remaster gaining immense hype from fans. Like a free Loftwing, Skyward Sword HD has soared its way upward, perching atop the number one spot on Amazon USA’s Best Selling chart for Switch games (and it’s only below gift cards on the overall video game chart).

Preorders for the game are “temporarily out of stock” at the time of writing, which suggests that Amazon has already sold through its initial allotment. The game has also performed well on Amazon UK, where it currently sits in second place in the Best Selling list just below another of Nintendo’s popular Switch remasters, Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury.

For more on Skyward Sword HD, it was recently confirmed that the game will support amiibo compatibility.
