Link’s Sword Is Looking Very Skyward Today

Hey! It’s a trailer for the new Legend of Zelda game, Skyward Sword. Not too much to say — it’s very clearly a Zelda game — but I like the reasonable use of the Wii-Mote, as well as the actual cutting mechanics (Link slicing through that thing’s shield was pretty tight). I also appreciate that there appears to be no conceit forced on this game, like turning into a wolf, or time travel, or sailing for 80% of the game. It’s just your back-to-basics Legend of Zelda. Not that those games were bad, of course, it’s just that I don’t need my Link to do much other than have a grappling hook. (Via Kotaku)
