  • A prequel to the classic Ocarina of Time, In Skyward Sword, Link lives in a cluster of floating islands known as Skyloft. Leading an ordinary life there, he one day discovers the Skyward Sword that leads him to an unknown land ruled by evil forces. Using the sword to travel back and forth between sky and land, the mystery of why the two worlds became separated is gradually revealed.

    A vibrant world that is full of life and color, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is coming soon to the Nintendo Wii and so the adventure continues!

    Key Features of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

    Here is a list of key elements that will be available in Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, based on news and announcements made so far.

    Upgrading Items
    As well as streamlining the inventory system, Link will be able to upgrade his items using treasures or artifacts recovered from battles. Link’s shield, beetle and other items will all be upgradeable in Skyward Sword.

    Wii MotionPlus
    The game will utilize the Wii MotionPlus; swordplay is based on the MotionPlus feature, allowing one-to-one motion control between the Wii Remote and Link’s sword. Other items can also be controlled with the Wii MotionPlus such as bombs, a Slingshot, a Whip, and the new Beetle! Additionally, Link will be able to play Zelda’s harp, which also involves this feature.

    A Stamina Meter
    A stamina meter will allow for various actions such as sprinting! Unlike previous titles in the series, the consumption of potions occurs in real-time. The heads-up display will also be adjustable.

    Right-Handed Play
    Like the Wii version of Twilight Princess, Link will be right-handed in Skyward Sword to accommodate the majority of gamers. It is unknown at this point if there will be an option to swap the dominant hand.

    Travel
    To travel between the floating islands of Skyloft, Link rides a giant bird! These birds, seen in the promotional shots of the game, can be summoned from various docks around the islands!

      Really looking forward to this, even if I still have to finish Twilight Princess. The devs are really polishing this up to shine, they’ve been working it for 1 or 2 years longer than intended so far. I say so far, because it still hasn’t gotten an exact date other than the vague “Fall 2011″.

      My favorite thing about the new story is that Zelda isn’t a princess in this one. I wonder how that’s going to play out…

      Don’t you hate it when they get all vague with release dates!? The only thing that’s worse is when they keep pushing something back, so I guess it’s good that they have at least decided on Fall this year haha! Hmm yes, they are supposed to be childhood friends in this installment *scratches chin* interessant indeed ^.^
