The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword story details emerge

Photobucket Character and plot details of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, are starting to appear ahead of the Wii game’s November 18 European release next month. The game appears to be an origin story and prequel to Ocarina of Time. It will explore staple elements of the series that have been in place for 25 years, such as the creation of the Master Sword.

The game starts in Skyloft, an island town suspended in the sky, on the eve of a bird-flying competition in which a young Link is set to compete. The winner of this contest earns the honour to participate in a special ceremony with Zelda, who is not a princess this time around, but a childhood friend of Link. Events in the new game will add more depth to their friendship and the special bond they share.

An early antagonist in the game comes in the form of Groose, Link’s nemesis from school who sets out to sabotage Link’s chances in the flying competition. His intentions are unknown at this point but Nintendo hints they could be fuelled by a jealousy of Link and Zelda’s relationship.

Link’s persistent guide throughout this latest instalment appears to be Fi, the spirit of the powerful Goddess Sword. Another potential source of information might be Gaepora, Zelda’s father who is also the headmaster of Link’s school. He is very knowledgeable about the legends and history of Skyloft.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is the first in the series to take advantage of the Wii’s motion plus controls and the extra precision it allows. A limited edition version of the game comes with a gold-coloured motion plus controller that bears the Hylian Crest, as well as an orchestral CD with selected arrangements from The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony.

Skyward Sword is just over five weeks away from its European release. In that time, Nintendo has promised to reveal more select details about the game to keep mental appetites and speculation fed. Look for more details coming soon.
