Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword – More Details on Skyward Sword

Share

Nintendo has revealed more details about the captivating areas, items and game play in the massive The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword game, launching exclusively for the Wii system on Nov. 20. This week, Link continues his epic quest and travels back to the Eldin Volcano as additional discoveries have uncovered new portions of the map. Players will dig the new items and find a new way to traverse through this area. Newly revealed game elements include the following:

• Return to the Eldin Volcano and the Fire Sanctuary: Link travels back to this volcanic area to journey into the Fire Sanctuary, a dungeon that sits on top of the volcano’s summit.

• New Items: In the Fire Sanctuary, Link receives yet another new item – the Mogma Mitts. Using these, he is able to access underground tunnels by digging through soft patches in the ground to explore the subterranean areas in this dungeon.

• The Quest Continues: As Link makes his way through this treacherous area and continues on his quest to find and help Zelda, a massive eruption throws him from atop the volcano.

• More Fun in the Skies: When Link returns to Skyloft he can look forward to a multitude of fun diversions, including Pumpkin Pull, a challenging game of target shooting that involves flying pumpkins.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will be available as a standalone game or as part of a limited-edition bundle that also includes a gold-colored Wii Remote Plus controller. Additionally, every copy in the initial production runs of the game will come packaged with a special music CD containing orchestral arrangements of select songs that were performed at The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony Concert on Oct. 21 in Los Angeles.

    Eldin Bridge was a location in Twilight Princess, and Eldin seems to be the spirit of light. Also, the bridge was near a mountain range so perhaps it’s somewhere there, though it also could be totally unrelated.

    The gloves though aren’t totally new: They appear in Minish Cap. They are called the Mole Mitts in that game. This only shows again how the games possibly relate.

    Also, there is the fact that Aonuma has stated now that the timeline is linear and doesn’t branch as Nintendo originally said…Interesting indeed.
