    The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
    11/20/2011

    The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is a Zelda game developed for the Nintendo Wii. It is the first Legend of Zelda game created specifically with the Wii in mind, and requires Wii Motion Plus. It is scheduled to be released during the 2011 Holiday season in Japan and Australia, on November 18, 2011 in Europe, and on November 20, 2011 in North America.

    Upon its North American release, a special edition Skyward Sword bundle will be available at the price of $69.99. The bundle will include a copy of Skyward Sword, as well as a gold Wii Remote Plus. Additionally, a limited edition CD, featuring music from The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony Concert, will also be packaged alongside all early purchases of the standard and special edition copies of Skyward Sword.

    Story

    Link has lived his entire life on a floating island above the clouds known as Skyloft; however, his everyday life is interrupted by an event involving the Goddess Sword that reveals that there is a land below Skyloft, which is actually Hyrule. It is then discovered that Hyrule is being overrun by evil forces, forcing Link to go there. As the story progresses, it was revealed in a Gamespot interview with Eiji Aonuma that Link will be searching for a "lost or valuable friend" in the process. Throughout the game, Link must spend his journey traveling back and forth between Hyrule and Skyloft with the use of the Goddess Sword.

    The Goddess Sword, which is the figure shown on the poster on E3 2009, possesses intelligence and will assume the semi-human form in the teaser poster. Eventually, the Goddess Sword will become the Master Sword. The Goddess Sword is also the driving force behind Link's traveling between the two lands and the sword will focus "heavily on the reason why there are two lands divided by a bank of clouds."

    The E3 2011 Skyward Sword trailer shows a blonde-haired girl, heavily implied to be Zelda, flying alongside Link. However, a nearby blast causes her to fall down into the world below, with Link reaching towards her. This coincides with what Aonuma had said in a 2010 interview about Link searching for a "valuable friend" throughout his journey, as it was apparent in the trailer that Link and Zelda are good friends.

    Eiji Aonuma confirmed on July 25, 2011, that Ganondorf is not planned to be in the game.

    The Triforce was confirmed to have a role in the game, but Eiji Aonuma stated it would not be central to the plot.

    Cool. My kids will be happy, the oldest is half-way through Twilight Princess. I kinda lost interested during Ocarina of Time. Beat it, but never went on to Majoras Mask. Much prefer playing Link To the Past, Links Awakening, or even the original from time to time.

    That gift will be totally awesome!! :toast:
    I would love though that they didn't have to make some compromises about graphics quality because of the Wii platform but anyway we both know it's not the graphics that makes the game... The beautiful story and feelings (sometimes makes me shiver for how much it's awesome) behind this saga :cool:

    yeah buying for sure. i have only ever played ocarina and majora on n64, but those two games each consumed more than 1.5-2 years of my life. playing zelda is one of the fondest memories i have, and i don't think that's a bad thing as it's a truly wonderful world.

    Don't worry. This one is prequel to Wind Waker in the series so you're not missing much.

    Have it and played about 3 hours of it. So far I like it a lot, it is a different story than the other Zeldas i'm used to .
