It’s been quite the week for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD. Not only did we get a brand new amiibo reveal, the gorgeous Zelda & Loftwing amiibo, but Nintendo has shared various screenshots from the earliest of all Link’s adventures.

Interestingly for a game that some could be experiencing for the first time, they’re leaning hard on the sense of evoking players’ memories. The rollout of screenshots seem to be progressing through Skyward Sword’s plot, beginning with Link and Zelda’s time in Skyloft to the future Master Sword wielder’s descent to the Surface.
 


 

It remains to be seen if more batches will follow that take us to the likes of Eldin Volcano and the Lanayru Desert, but what I want to know is when we’ll get a new look at Groose. Give me HD Groose and a Groose amiibo, and even Groose Joy-Con. After all, every story needs its hero.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD (as well as its special edition Joy-Con and the Zelda & Loftwing amiibo) will soar onto Switch on July 16th.
