An interesting information on The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD has been clarified in these hours, that is the specific identity of the author team of this remaster, that is Tantalus Media, a team outside Nintendo that has previously dealt with similar operations.
Although the thing was certainly not kept secret, the confirmation came only in these days, also thanks to the diffusion of the review copies of the game of which we saw the first votes of the international press yesterday as well as our review of The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD.
Also in this case, therefore, Nintendo has resorted tooutsourcing entrusting the development of the game to an external team, however using a partner already known for operations of this type: the Australian team Tantalus Media is in fact also the author of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD, the remaster of the Wii chapter released on Wii U .
In general, Nintendo often relies on external team for remakes and remasters of their games, in particular as regards the Zelda series: in fact, we remind you that The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, Majora’s Mask 3D and The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening for Nintendo Switch have been developed by the Grezzo team , while Tantalus Media has precisely dealt with The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD and as has now emerged also with The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD.
Conversely, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD was instead developed internally by Nintendo, which in any case maintains a strict control over the development process even with regard to outsourced games, especially when it comes to large-caliber series like Zelda.
At the time of Twilight Princess HD, the same producer responsible for the series, Eiji Aonuma, reported that he had chosen Tantalus Media for its “great development skills”, based on its previous and ability to adapt to remakes, thus specifically deciding the Australian team for the task. Evidently, Nintendo was satisfied with what they did and decided to return to them for the new Skyward Sword HD as well.
