One of the myths of Nintendo is back. And although this year seems to have spoken more than 3-D remake 'Ocarina of Time' Really is 'Skyward Sword' Who is responsible for keeping alive the flame of the saga, to innovate that has to innovate and to overcome the already distant appearance of the series to Wii, that 'Twilight Princess'.
25 years after its creation, Zelda (and Eiji Aonuma, again project leader) in 2011 should demonstrate why it is always a saga in which you can trust. Always? So far, yes. Now it's up 'Skyward Sword'.
'The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword', plot and characters of the last Zelda for Wii
'Skyward Sword' is parked temporarily before 'Ocarina of Time' with a Link raised on islands that float in the sky of Hyrule. The plot revolves around the discovery of the sword's title game and allow the player to travel (round trip, of course) to the surface of Hyrule.
As the main characters change from the rest of the series, this time will not be a princess Zelda, but a villager of Skyloft, the people of Link. How to disappear ... not to be rescued by the hero. Or not, that's depend on our skills.
What we do know is that 'Skyward Sword' as good prequel, Will see more of the mythology behind the 'Ocarina of Time' that will never cease to be a reference to the Zelda universe, including something about Ganondorf.
New game modes and more air in the Zelda and dynamic of all
As long as you begin to prepare some Zelda, many small details have been transcending how he'll play. On the one hand, Nintendo has said that he wanted a different experience, Away from the scan / enter dungeons takes to be the key to the whole saga. Furthermore, it neglects the menu items to make way for a new way to select them without so many rodeos.
Graphically, abandon the trend toward realism in 'Twilight Princess' looking for something more painterly, closer to the Cel-Shading 'Wind Waker' and, according to the developers of the game, influenced by the Impressionist painters.
In a game where the element of air has so much presence (Islands floating in the skies, remember), it is not surprising that this time only dungeons no longer issued also horizontal vertical.
With regard to our movements, 'Skyward Sword' will use Wii Motion Plus for fights with the sword with the idea of reproducing as closely as our movements with the remote. Yes, the famous 1:1 recognition used so that these time it seems we have a sword in his hand. After Twilight Princess', it is obvious that this aspect needed to improve and has been, since its presentation at E3 2010, the technical novelty of the game.
The increased detection of our movements also involve need to squeeze us in carrying out fighting, that we are more precise and to seek weaknesses. For those who need no such difficulty, the possibility of pressing the point Z and forget.
The other novelty is the game famous flying insect that managed remotely Link and will allow access to areas that our hero would not have access otherwise. His control will like planes 'Wii Sports Resort'. Also, flying birds that allow us to go between the islands of Hyrule aerial part of the game (and mini), adding another touch Zelda flying to the clouds will always reference.
