The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is the second installment in the cult series meant for Nintendo Wii. It was thoroughly planned by Shigeru Miyamoto, Nintendo’s biggest star. In Skyward Sword, typically for The Legend of Zelda, we play as Link. He comes from an extraordinary place called Skyloft. It is a realm composed of small island floating in the air. This game is a prequel to all the previously published installment. Link peacefully grows up and lives like an ordinary boy until the day he discovers the Goddess Sword: a powerful weapon with a spirit living inside of it. Links gets to know that there is another realm under Skyloft and that it is ruled by the powers of evil.
Thanks to the power of Skyward Sword and to the useful advice provided by its inhabitant, Link sets out on a journey through both realms, trying to save his childhood friend, Zelda, who was kidnapped by demonic forces and thrown into the dark place below the clouds. The game features a fun, complex control system that uses all of Wii’s special traits. Generally, we control Link with Wii Remote and Nunchuk. Wii MotionPlus can also be used for sword fighting and Wii Remote for targeting. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, as usually, is an action-adventure game that also features role-playing and puzzle elements. We get to control Link from a third person perspective. He engages into many fights, mostly using a sword and a shield. Among Link’s secondary weapons we can find a bow, clawshots and bombs which become available as we advance further into the story.
Link can also receive new, useful items that enable him to explore the world more thoroughly. One of the novelties in the series is an interesting crafting system. Link can gather crafting materials from his enemies or by collecting natural ones scattered around the locations. Thanks to them, a shopkeeper can upgrade our items. Link can also catch bugs to have his potions upgraded with them. In The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword inventory got divided into three separate parts: equipment for weapons, an adventure pouch for other items like potions, quests items and shields, and an item check which is located in a bazaar and stores objects that can’t fit into Link’s pouch, which has a limited capacity. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword can be bought in a limited edition bundle that features a CD with orchestrated tracks of iconic music from the series.
