The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Details Revealed


Nintendo has revealed more details regarding new areas, items and gameplay in their upcoming title The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

Following the information they gave us earlier in the month detailing the story and characters (read here), Nintendo have told us about some of the ‘captivating’ locales, a handy pair of dowsing mitts and some flying pumpkins – a combination for success if we’ve ever heard one.

Take a look at the details below and let us know what you think via the comments.

Link continues his epic quest and travels back to the Eldin Volcano as additional discoveries have uncovered new portions of the map. Players will dig the new items and a new way to traverse through this brand new area. Newly revealed game elements include the following:

Return to the Eldin Volcano and the Fire Sanctuary: Link travels back to this volcanic area to journey into the Fire Sanctuary, a dungeon that sits on top of the volcano’s summit.

New Items: In the Fire Sanctuary, Link receives yet another new item – the Mogma Mitts. Using these, he is able to access underground tunnels by digging through soft patches in the ground to explore the subterranean areas in this dungeon.

The Quest Continues: As Link continues on his quest to find and help Zelda, making his way through this treacherous area, a massive eruption from the Volcano  throws him off course.

More Fun in the Skies: When Link returns to Skyloft, he can look forward to a multitude of fun activities, including Pumpkin Pull, a challenging game of target shooting that involves flying pumpkins.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword becomes available for Nintendo Wii in Europe, 18th November.

Began gaming on a hand-me-down Commodore Vic-20 back in the mid 80's and hasn't managed to shake the addiction yet. Genres of choice include anything that contains bullets and/or bouncy balls. Has been known to dabble in Destiny content.
