Back in 2009 Shigeru Miyamoto unveiled a piece of artwork showing what the next Zelda game would look like by showing a picture of Link holding a Shield without a Sword (presumably the Master Sword off course) and a fairy in the background of the picture as well.
Well the answer came true a year later when Shigeru Miyamoto unveiled the next Zelda game on the Wii and it was titled The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and we were very pleased with the outcome when the game was shown off for the first time at E3 2010 and we were happy that this Zelda Game uses the Wii Motion Plus to play the game to improve your sword swings and slashes and also improves the use of your other items such as your bombs, your bow and also including a new item which is a whip with the Wii Motion Plus as well.
The game itself starts off in a town called Skyloft which lives up in the sky above the clouds of the land below. In this game, Zelda is not a princess this time, she's a childhood friend of Link at the Knight Academy living with her Father Gaepora who is the Headmaster at the Knight Academy. In this game, Link flies on a bird called a Loftwing to travel to 3 regions scattered across the Overworld of the sky itself with his assistant Fi who is a blue fairy who lives in Link's Sword giving Link objectives what to do his Quests.
The ultimate villian is this Game is a Demon Lord called Ghirahim who is the servant to the Demon King Demise who plane to capture Zelda and take over the world for himself and the Demon King Demise as well.
In the 3 regions of the Game you, will encounter travelling Gorons who research the areas on their travels and they give Link advice to what to look out for during the game.
The Dowsing ability in the Game itself is very clever. It's like a metal detector tracking down something quickly in your Quest. This feature is only done with your Sword throughout the Game.
The new controls in Skyward Sword are Very Good and they work very well especially the new Sword techniques as well which I really do love because when playing the Game and then you get your Sword out and waving it around, it copies you movements on the Wii Motion Plus (or Wii Remote Plus) itself.
The Bow Works out very well especially when aiming at enemies you, can do it in 2 ways:
Press and hold down A to get a full aim or
put both controllers together and press and holding down C and drawing your arrow just a real bow and getting your full aim that way.
Your bombs also work in 2 ways and they are:
Throwing your bombs as normally by waving the Wii Remote Forward and also a brand new technique which is rolling your bombs like bowling ball like in Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort which is very unique.
The Whip and the Beetle are 2 of the newest items in the Game and they work nicely.
The Beetle helps you collect Hearts, Rupees, Treasures and even catches Bomb Flowers as well when you upgrade your Beetle throughout the Game itself.
The Whip helps you hook onto poles to swing you across large gaps and it also hooks to big switches and big levers to help you solve puzzles.
Finally, Link can run up steeper hills by press and holding down A on the Wii Remote for a short time until Link runs out of Stamina. To keep Link running faster you, have to collect Stamina Fruit to keep Link running faster to stop him slowing down every time.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is by far the Best Zelda game since Ocarina of Time in 1998 and it is the Hardest Zelda Game yet since The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks.
To mark the Series's 25th anniversary, the Game comes with a soundtrack CD with all the music from some of the best Zelda Games of all time to the Present day and it's played Beautifully by an Orchestra for the first time in the history of The Legend of Zelda Game Series.
If you've played all the other Zelda Games in the past, this Game will keep you going for months or even years to come.
If you thought The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess was short, this is the Game for you.
