Out this year, check out the game in action - brand new flying sequences

Finally its on the way to a normal Wii near you. Skyward Sword got its last E3 showing with a brand new trailer and some new details of the game have come to light during a developer Q&A this morning.

Aonuma has demoed a new element of the game previously unseen and that is the Siren Realm. Link enters this new dimension in order to forge the Master Sword. Link is unarmed in the Siren Realm and will have to be on his toes.

The theories about the sword being a person or helper were half correct as there is a spirit who lives in Links sword throughout the game. This spirit is much like Navi or Midna and is your helpful guide through the game.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is due out later this year before Christmas.

A Link to the Future

One of the most storied franchises in history soars to new heights. The Legend of Zelda™: Skyward Sword shakes up the tried-and-true adventure game formula and marks a turning point for the franchise. The introduction of full motion controls enabled by Wii MotionPlus™ technology synchronizes player movements with Links actions while offering the most intuitive play control of any game in the series to date.


•The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword boasts the most realistic sword combat of any game to date, turning every encounter into a challenge of both brains and brawn. Wii MotionPlus technology accurately translates the angle of every sword slice, effectively putting Links blade in the players hand. Analyzing enemy attack and defense tendencies and counteracting with precise swings of the sword provide a satisfying experience that blends puzzle-solving with a new and distinctly unique combat system.

•Explore a massive, multilayered world that seamlessly blends soaring exploration in a sea of clouds with intense ground-based adventuring that blurs the line between the main world and traditional Zelda dungeons. Link™ soars through the skies on the back of a noble bird and dives beneath the clouds to the continent below in an epic quest that lays the foundation for the events in the critically acclaimed The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

•Prepare for intense puzzle-solving as only The Legend of Zelda games can deliver. Exploration of the forests, volcanoes and deserts requires players to think on their feet as they solve puzzles, overcome obstacles and escape deadly traps. Once they find their way to each dungeon, they are confronted by even more puzzles guarded by fiendish enemies.

•The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword redefines the traditional Zelda framework and introduces an arsenal of items, upgrades and rewards unlike any game in the franchise to date. The adventure guides players into, out of and back to dungeons and areas theyve already completed. Along the way, Link gathers a massive inventory of peculiar items and resources that can be used to upgrade many of his weapons and equipment.
