The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

leave a comment »

Nintendo just had their E3 keynote address this morning and they finally released some details on the new upcoming Zelda. It has an official name: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. The new game has a cel-shaded look. There will be some new items including a beetle which Link can send out and control like a remote control plane and whip very similar to that of the one seen in Spirit Tracks. The game will utilize Wii MotionPlus giving the player control of both the sword and the shield. Good use of the shield is something I have always wanted in a Zelda game and it’s finally here. Unfortunately, the game will not be released until 2011. Check the trailer below.

All in all the game looks solid. Nintendo seems to be focusing primarily on the game-play aspects of the new title, while not adventuring into anything new as far as graphics; I think this will disappoint many. I don’t care much, hell, I would be happy with some more Wind Waker graphics. Like I said though, it seems to be about control. As long as the controls are tight and perfected to the expectation of the millions of Zelda players out there, I think Nintendo is on the right track to putting out another solid Zelda game. The preview provided at E3 is exactly that, a preview. While many proceed to freak out about their disappointments about the limited info released thus far, I’m just gonna sit back and wait for the next installment of The Legend of Zelda expecting nothing more than a boat load of fun; cause that’s what Nintendo always delivers.

Be Rad. Enjoy.
