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.
horse,boat,train,and now flying. whats next, space travel?
Can't wait for this game! Looks wicked and they still speak gilbrish... whatever speling is XD
Whats with the NFL commercials?
I love the way you can see the chain mail under Link's tunic. Sorry, I'm a sucker for detail.
NFL + Zelda = greatness
Looks great. Can't wait to see more.
I believe this will be the first game I buy for the Wii since Smash Bros Brawl.
Sweet. I can't wait.
That little segment was nice. I'm looking forward to seeing more.
That vid was really weak. Not even worth the upload.
I really can't wait for this game.
I know its fantasy, but the sailcloth could have at least been as wide as link is tall.
I'm insanely excited for this game :D
-Something unexpected surprise--
Hello. My friend
Dedi cated service, the new style, believing you will love it
WE ACCEPT PYA PAL PAY MENT
YOU MUST NOT MISS IT
The air must be much thicker in ancient Hyrule than on Earth, since a bird with a 12-foot wingspan can carry Link, and his terminal velocity is only about 40 mph (which explains why he never loses more than one heart from falls). This makes it all the more impressive that he can sprint as fast as an NFL wide receiver. Maybe the ad at the start wasn't so inappropriate after all:)
