Earlier today at Nintendo’s E3 showing, Miyamoto announced that the much hyped Zelda title, slated to be a “re-boot”, will be releasing in 2011 for the Wii. The game is titled Skyward Sword.
A teaser trailer, an announcement trailer and lots of gameplay footage was shown as well. The trailers were pretty good- the art style is spectacular, the visuals very appealing, and FINALLY Zelda has full orchestrated sound, as opposed to MIDI. But the gameplay footage was a bit disappointing. Apparently, the game features nothing that we haven’t seen in the past Zelda games. But Link looks more mature now, and sounds the same.
The demo didn’t go off too well because of some wireless interferance in the hall, but what we saw appeared decent, though nothing really special. Though Link has a whip, which looked real kickass. Anyway, let’s wait and watch.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will be released for the Wii next year. The E3 videos regarding LoZ:SS can be found below.
