This latest Zelda game uses the Wii Remote and Nunchuck in concert and the power of the Wii MotionPlus to deliver enhanced motion controls that will make you feel like you ARE Link, more than ever before. Link swings when you do, and you must use Nunchuck gestures to block with your Shield and make use of items. All of this combines to create a deeply immersive experience with interesting puzzle-solving challenges throughout the game.

The introductory storyline of Zelda: Skyward Sword includes the following:
The new game’s storyline begins in Skyloft, an island town suspended high in the sky, on the day before young Link™ is to compete in a major bird-flying competition. The winner of the contest will earn the honor of taking part in a special ceremony with Zelda™.
Link and Zelda
Friends since childhood, Link and Zelda have always shared a special bond. Events in the new game will add even more depth to their relationship.
Link’s nemesis at school, Groose, plays a significant role in the early moments of the new game. This bully of a character not only threatens Link’s chances to win the bird-flying competition, but he also reveals a jealous streak toward Link and Zelda’s special bond.
Early on in Link’s new adventure, he encounters Fi, the spirit of the powerful Goddess Sword. Fi’s guidance proves to be crucial as Link goes forth on a challenging quest that will ultimately result in the creation of the Master Sword.
Gaepora, Zelda’s father, is the headmaster of Link’s school. As such, he has knowledge of the history and legends of Skyloft.
