for the Nintendo Switch. Today, Nintendo has confirmed that this is not the case.

This past weekend, we found out that long-time The Legend of Zelda producer ,Eiji Aonuma, had teased a Nintendo Switch version of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for the Nintendo Switch during an official The Legend of Zelda concert that took place in Osaka.

Thenews came from several users sharing on social media that Aonuma said something in the lines of "We know what you are thinking, Skyward Sword on Switch, right?", leading fans to believe that this was pretty much a subtle confirmation that Nintendo was actually working on a port of the game for the Nintendo Switch.

Eurogamer reached out to Nintendo for confirmation, and the spokesperson that replied pretty much denied that Nintendo is planning on releasing The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword on the Nintendo Switch by simply saying.

"At this time we have no plans to release The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword on Nintendo Switch", said the Nintendo spokesperson., pretty much shutting down the whole rumour that started with Aonuma during that The Legend of Zelda concert that took place in Osaka this weekend.

While this definitely sounds like bad news for fans of The Legend of Zelda series, Nintendo has denied countless times that they had been working on certain projects; projects that eventually ended up being confirmed and released.

For the longest time, Nintendo denied that they were working on The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask for the Nintendo 3DS, and they eventually released the game. The same happened with The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD, which was denied pretty much since the rumours surfaced online, and Nintendo also ended up releasing the rumoured title later on.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, as of now, will not be releasing on the Nintendo Switch, but it is very likely that they are simply denying it because media outlets reached out to them and caught them on the spot. Nintendo will not announce a title, much less one as big as The Legend of Zelda, because someone asked them whether a rumour was true or not. If they ever announce it, they'll make sure there is no doubt that the game is indeed coming out, but they will not simply confirm a rumour, so there is still hope for fans of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword out there.
