Check out over 4 minutes of direct-feed Zelda: Skyward Sword footage.
Damn, this looks pretty epic. The flying should add an awesome alternative to horse-riding and I can't wait for some sky battles.
wow even tho the wii is the weakest of the three systems, the art style in this game makes it look a lot better than some HD games with their grays and browns.
to Cliff_BleSHITski, jokes sometimes don't go over well in text. that is a joke right. or atleast one that you say isn't but inside you think it's funny that everybody believed you. if none of the above... may you have mercy on your soul. and i bet you played or saw a poor representation of a ps3 game and then decided it was enough to convince yourself that your wii was the best console once again. seriously, watch this, in hd. (related video) and in other things, cool footage.
@Cliff Please tell me thats sarcasm... Because if its not, you are an embarrasment even to Nintendo fanboys like myself. I have no need to make stuff like the PS3 being weaker than the Wii to show how much i enjoy the Wii. Same as i could say why i enjoy my PS3 or 360.
WTF is this crap? It's looks like a freaking cartoon!? How am I supposed to get attached to characters that don't look lifelike? And LOL at the WAGGLE TO WIN xDD, that's what you get for owning a "Console" (If you can call it that) that doesn't have buttons.
i could swear the wii mote + nunchuk has 8 buttons... kinda like you know, ps3, 360... maybe if you actually knew what you are talking about your comments would make more sense
Those Graphics look great along with the gameplay
Great footage, but this video player is gaaaaaarrrrbage.
Nice. A ton of actually new footage. The variety of environments looks great! With this, Dark Souls and Skyrim, the end of 2011 will be amazing for action-RPG fans.
"Direct feed"? Direct from what, my ass? Thankfully you can make out enough detail to see that there is a lot to be excited about.
I don't own a Wii, but must say that looks great.
I thought the sword was going to be one-to-one control the animations looked canned and gesture based.
They seemed to have borrowed a few ideas from other games, the giant whale in the sky seems like the Leviathan from DMC3, and the hairy beast looks like one of the Colossi from SotC. I think this game is going to be more action combat based, with a big emphasis on discovery and cave/dungeon crawling which I think is what the game needed to evolve since the N64 version. Looking good.
I noticed that, but I love DMC, so let them borrow the whale
I initially thought that the whale in the sky was more a reference to the Wind Fish from Link's Awakening, as it would seem appropriate given the setting. They realy seem to have gone all out on this new Zelda. I'm really looking forward to it. Where am I going to find the time to plough 50-100 hours into it, though? lol. I'm sure I'll make time.
