Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword – E3 Trailer and First Details

Following on from our earlier report, which confirmed the new title for the upcoming Zelda title on the Wii, we now have some details on the game, along with the E3 trailer for Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

As we mentioned earlier, the game will be compatible with both the Wii Mote and MotionPlus accessory and controlling Link is a completely new experience thanks to the added sensitivity within MotionPlus.

For example, you’ll now be able to roll and throw bombs using body gestures with the Wii Mote, and the MotionPlus also brings new capabilities to the Slingshot weapon and Whip.

Nintendo also gave us a look at the new menu system featured in the game, as you’ll now find it easy to scroll between weapons using Wii MotionPlus.

Check out the E3 teaser trailer below and let us know your thoughts on the game. Are you impressed with Skyward Sword or not?

you people make me laugh , "i sure hope i wont have to move my oversized ass more than pushing a few buttons, sitting in my couch". Im a fan of that serie from the very first legend of zelda on nes and i welcome the new challenge the wii will give us. Try to at least give the damn game a chance .Also one important thing : the zelda serie always been colorfull and cartoony , not all game have to be perfectly realistic like call of redundance and other marvelous repetitive and boring title game compagnies shit on… Read more »

hey what i want to know is what its rated, how good the graphics are, is it on gamecube (i doubt it) and seriously he has to be cute

Link

yeah, Link should wear tights :O but btw, minish cap and twilight princess were the best <3

why is Link wearing pants instead of tights ?! D:

I'm still hyped that this one is coming out though, cause LOZ started to drop after Wind Waker. Twilight Princess saved it from dropping all the way. (thats just my opinion) * OOT was the best. EVER. 😀

why cant he just stay 3d. why cant link ever be a bad guy. oh right too many would probably miss his cuteness. I wish they would come out with a limited addition zelda where he gets down and dirty *Shadow Link?* and gets some blood going….i know it wont happen but….

The graphics look worse than Twilight Princess. But this game hasn't even come out yet, so they're probably working on improving the graphics right now.

this one looks way to kidish…they were goin in the right direction with twilight princess..every zelda iv played is fun..but windwaker was to kid ish…i was waiting for one to come out to match ocarina of time and majoros masks' awesmeness..and i think twilight did just that..and i was really hoping this new one would be even more epic and maybe even up the graphics and gore a little bit..but it looks like there fuckin that up..my opinion though..sure it will still be a fun game…

This game looks awesome and cannot what until it comes out and this game looks good but it could look more epic.:D

Hm. Its awfully cartoony….but still looks cool :D. Hopefully it'll be pretty epic. I was pretty disappointed with the graphics in Windwaker, phantom hourglass and Spirit tracks, tho they were fun. Twlight princess was the best in my opinion. It really brought out link's epic heroism. Lets hope they don't ''kid-ify'' the new one. But either way, I'm excited! And….why was link right handed? Wasnt he supposed to be left handed…? Boo..

I hope its not a 'lighthearted' sequel… It needs some chaos and dark moments!!!

LINK IS NOT SUPOSE TO BE RIGHT HANDED!!!!!!!!!!

seriously did anyone notice that.
The windwaker style knocked the series down a few notches not because of the graphics but because it was WAY to easy for a Zelda game.

NOW THE ONLY GOOD THING THEY HAD GOING FOR ZELDA, That being Link the rare LEFTHANDED HERO, IS RUINED.
I mean come on

F*#K THE WII-MOTE AND MAKE HIM LEFT HANDED AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What I am worried about are the controls.

people often bashed the aesthetic style of windwaker, yet i never understood why. I felt that it gave the series a new, actually better look . It allowed the characters to be more expressive, gave the game a certain charm, introduced certain concepts and ideas that simply would not have worked without the cartoon graphics and I give nintendo kudos for giving a great big "FU" to the naysayers. I love both twilight princess and windwaker, but I think that the cell shading is worthy of being reutilized. I am personally in favor of seeing both styles in future zelda… Read more »
