Nintendo releases 'Skyward Sword' Comic-Con trailer
Friday 22 July 2011
A short trailer for
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword neatly summarizes the Wii game's storyline.
Starting off on the floating island of Skyloft, home to series hero Link, Princess Zelda is once again whisked away - this time while flying on a giant bird.
From there, Link gathers his equipment and embarks on an adventure that sees him encountering
strange creatures both friendly and hostile.
There's also sky-diving, vine-swinging, lava-crossing, puzzle solving and swordplay to be had before a fight with the nimble Lord Ghirahim.
Unusually for game trailers, there's an absence of both voiceovers and text - save for the rating notice and game logos that bookend the clip.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is due on the Wii between October and December 2011, the same period as Just Dance 3, Spider-Man: Edge of Time, Rayman Origins and Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7.
Nintendo World Report is hosting the new Skyward Sword trailer at youtu.be/mgxRMZFTwik.
