The lights are on
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.
Aaron Rodgers was pumped for this video.
Maybe I haven't been keeping too close an eye on all of SS's details, but does that meter in the upper left corner (when Link is dashing) suggest that your shield can wear out and break?
Awesome video .. though .. I was kinda hoping the classic overworld theme would play while flying around.
I can't wait!!!
Eldin is back...and he's ready to burn some @$$
Looks like Link finally hit lvl 70 and got epic flying.
Noooo, quit teasing us with the music. I want to hear both those songs now in full.
So am I going to be flying around between floating islands instead of sailing or taking a train?
Looks awesome. Didn't know Link was a slave owner :P
*tear* i love zelda. might actually have to get a wii lol.
make it available for gamecube *** it!
whenever link is on that bird i just want to go WHEEEEEEEWW like Tobuscus
This game is looking fantastic!
Man this game is looking great. Wish I had a working Delorean.
This is honestly my most anticipated game of the year. Second would have to be Elder Scrolls, followed by Uncharted.
Everyone seemsto be ignoring the most important thing... what is the relationship between Link and the spirit?!
this game looks so cool!!! i can't wait!!!
