Check Out Skyward Sword's Upgrade System

Nintendo's latest Skyward Sword trailer shows off Link's ability to upgrade his items by collecting assorted materials throughout the world. It also shows a large amount of uninterrupted gameplay.

Along with seeing Link collect things like Jelly Blobs and Ornamental Skulls, you'll also see Link traveling through the sky, using a parachute to safely avoid death by falling and finally the process of trading material to strengthen his shield.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword releases in the U.S. on November 20 for the Nintendo Wii.

  • bleh
  • Sweet! This looks really awesome! I like that they are adding more to Zelda. Now its a real RPG.
  • That is awesome! This is shaping up to be one of the best Zelda games in a long while. If only Nintendo would hire some freakin voice actors.
  • This is an interesting addition to the Zelda formula. Seems to be a good fit to me. Looking forward to seeing some more footage.
  • Ooooh, I definitely like this. Each new thing I'm learning about Skyward Sword is making me want to get it more.
  • Man his expression looks weird when he picks up an item, but still looks cool. This, Uncharted, Arkham City, and BF3 will make for a great send off of 2011.

  • I'm not watching any more SS videos, I want it all to be a surprise. I'm saving my self for marriage.
  • this looks really awesome. but i sold the wii so i can play games like skyrim :/ oh well, will definitively like skyrim more.
  • That's something I like to see, good job Nintendo!

  • sweet. This game just keeps getting more awesome.

  • What did that bokoblin ever do to him? Seriously, he just mugged that guy....

  • fffffffffffff.

    This game makes me feel like an old man the way I lose my bowels every time I see something more from it.

    I can't wait to pull the Wii out from the attic just to play it.
  • The only reason I still have a Wii, cannot wait!

  • Pre-ordering RIGHT after I get my $20 credit from gears three! (Thank you amazon)
  • November is going to be heaven. How am I going to split my time between this and Skyrim? There aren't enough hours in the day.
  • liking this better than twilight princess so far.  classic vibes, love the colors, goofy characters.  sick.

  • yes please....

  • ok, now i'm excited

  • Sucks that now our shields are going to degrade. It was bad enough that only those mound looking things could steal/break your shield, now everything can destroy it.

    Oh, and the upgrade system is neat.

  • I can't wait!
