It’s becoming increasingly common for Nintendo to lend out its IP and call on the services of external studios to help remake and remaster its classic library of games – so it’s no surprise to discover that the company’s latest release, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, was also handled by someone else.

As highlighted by the Australian Nintendo fansite Vooks.net, the developer of the enhanced Switch port was the Melbourne-based Aussie developer Tantalus. This information was confirmed in the credits of the game. While the studio may not be widely known, it actually has a bit of history with The Legend of Zelda series dating back to 2016.

Back during the troubled Wii U generation, it was responsible for the HD version of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess from the Wii and GameCube era. Series producer, Eiji Aonuma, originally recruited the studio because he felt it had “strong developing skills” across a number of remakes:

“I felt they had strong developing skills from seeing their work across remakes of previous titles, so I decided to ask Tantalus to remake this title.”
