We’ve been chronicling Masahiro Sakurai’s self-imposed mission to commemorate as many video game anniversaries as he can with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate screenshots, but it’s been a bit since we’ve covered one centered on a new game. Well, in this case it’s not completely new, but The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is still descending onto Switch for the first time.

Half of these screenshots heavily feature Ghirahim, Skyward Sword’s recurring and off-putting foe. Another is celebrating pieces of Link’s equipment that have become items, those being the Beetle and Gust Bellows. Both of these also happen to be particularly annoying in Smash, so make of that what you will.
The best one though? Having Falco stand in for Link’s Crimson Loftwing. I mean, he said he prefers the air… And who wouldn’t want to play along when Zelda’s looking so cheerful?
You can revisit the source itself in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, available now on Switch.
