The “Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword” is the latest (and some would say greatest) in the long-running series from Nintendo. Coming exclusively to the Nintendo Wii- this title takes full advantage of the revolutionary Wii Motion Plus add-on. The device is utilized for swordplay unlike any ever experienced in a Zelda title and numerous new gameplay mechanics- from racing through the sky on Link’s exotic bird companion to dowsing and rolling bombs into enemies.
Skyward Sword’s art direction combines the elements of predecessors “Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess” and “Legend of Zelda: Windwaker.” Just what destiny is gaming’s greatest hero faced with this time? What lies beneath the barrier of clouds that separates the land of the sky from the world below? What sad fate has befallen Zelda?
