Yes, it includes the items thing.

In a short trailer on Twitter today Nintendo announced a series of quality of life updates for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD. Some of these were already known but a few are known. Here's a quick breakdown.

  • Optional help from Fi (unclear if Fi can be entirely turned off)
  • Button Only Controls (already known)
  • Enhanced frame rate
  • Dialogue fast-forwarding
  • Skippable cutscenes
  • Items no longer display descriptions if picked up again after loading from a saved game

You can see the full trailer below.

As someone who liked Skyward Sword, they've fixed my biggest issues with the game.  Fi no longer interrupting and being able to speed up the dialogue will make replays so much nicer.

Loved Skyward Sword but even these QoL improvements aren't enough to make me want to spend $50-$60 on it.

Interesting that they didn't acknowledge the autosaves, which were not in the original release. But that was something I noticed when the trailer showed loading a game save.

At this point, it doesn't seem likely any new content is coming, which is unfortunate. I wonder if there are any QoL changes to that last act of the game. Maybe they didn't talk about those because of how far into the game that portion is. Still though...
