To the Sky and Back again with Skyward Sword

I am so looking forward to The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword for the Wii. I remember that the Ocarina of Time (OOT) was one of my favourite games I ever played. The recent games in the Zelda series have taken their cue off the OOT template ever since. That game by itself helped to create the foundation all adventure games would follow-up to today. Skyward Sword seems to reimagine what Zelda can be with a blurring of the lines between dungeon and the overworld. The ability for the wiimote + to accurately track your movements for 1 to 1 motion control. I really like the art style which is expressive and has the water-colour feel and is a perfect style for the Wii and the limitations of the hardware.

I can’t wait for this game it can definitely be considered a swan song game for the Wii as we head off to Wii U next year. This is a great 6 minute trailer for the game but beware there are some spoilers below. I love this time of year as a gamer, it ROCKS!
