Exclusive Video: Flying To Eldin Volcano in Skyward Sword

Today we bring you the first of five exclusive videos of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword showing off new and never-before-seen parts of the game. On display in this first video: the game's flying mechanic.

As the video shows, Link can leap from any of the many floating islands of Skyloft and call his bird to begin flight. Once flying, players can move toward colored beacons that let you know where you can jump to areas below the clouds. Players will also be able to place their own beacons to search specific islands in Skyloft -- but we'll see some of that in a later video. When he falls to the ground, Link will need to pull out a sailcloth to act as a parachute if he wants to avoid damage.

This video also shows a first glimpse of Eldin Volcano, an area we'll explore more in future videos and which is a major part of the October cover story. Enjoy the video and look for four more later this month.

Comments
  • Really an NFL commercial? Really?

    Edit: Also that parachute release was awfully close to the ground.
  • wow, looks awesome
  • Very excited for this. Day 1 buy with my golden Wiimote.
  • This is awesome! Cannot wait for the magazine!

  • This looks like the Wind Waker/Phantom Hourglass/Spirit Tracks way of going places that doesn't let you really explore like in the other games where every place was connected.
  • Nintendo should have allowed some BenHancements for this video...
  • I really want to like this game, I do. However, I just can't get into this art-style. Something about it just doesn't jive with me. I gotta give Nintendo some credit though, they are some of the only people that can really make something look half-way decent on Wii.
  • Anything and Everything Zelda. Jesus, November's gonna be crazy.

    Wait a minute! YOU KNOW INFORMATION THAT YOU ARE NOT TELLING US GI, TELL ME EVERYTHING YOU KNOW.
  • Not as cool as Just Cause 2.
  • oh my gosh...looks awesome!

  • *** I can't wait for this game

  • This kind of makes me not want to get this, and I was so excited a few weeks ago. I can't wait to sink my teeth into a new edition of GI...
  • Wow that looks awesome! Can't wait!

  • *** YOU, GAME INFORMER!!! I WANT IT NOW!!! HOW DARE YOU TEASE ME!!!

    Also, did anyone else think GLaDOS when they heard that girl talk?
  • Super pumped for this. Replaying Wind Waker to get in the right mood for the release
  • Want this game so badly!!!!!!

  • You know, I was thinking Eldin looks real! Like a different art style... could this be a two world scenario, realistic and toon shaded?

  • I want it now.

    Massive birds that carry you above the clouds?  Traversable volcanoes? This is what it must be like on SUPER EARTH.

  • Master?
  • Wow loved the look of that dive.
