Players will be able to enjoy the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword at home in a little over a month when the game comes out on the Wii on November 20. In the meantime, Nintendo is filling that time with new gameplay details and videos. Today, we have two new clips that show off some of the new locations that Link will be able to explore, some of the new gameplay elements, and lots of action.

Zelda games have traditionally featured forests, and Skyward Sword is no exception. One of the wooded areas that Link will explore during his quest is the Faron Woods. Nintendo says that this area is the first place that Link will visit after leaving the floating island of Skyloft at the game's outset. After passing through the forest, he'll come upon Skyview Temple, where Zelda is rumored to be held.

In the video below, you can see the forest, as well as the game's dowsing feature. Link can use his sword to track down the hidden members of the Kikwi Tribe, a group of adorable (and apparently inedible) creatures. Once found, they'll help Link in his quest.

The next video focuses on the Skyview Temple. The clip also highlights the game's combat and offers a nice look at how Link's beetle buddy can help him solve puzzles along the way. It ends with a glimpse of Ghirahim, one of the game's villains. As you'll see, he can summon weapons and teleport with the snap of a finger. Good luck, Link.
