For what seems like the third Friday in a row, Nintendo sent
us a pile of new screens and gameplay footage for Legend of Zelda: Skyward
Sword. It’s almost getting silly, but we’re looking forward to Skyward Sword so
much we don’t care. This most recent set of screens and vids takes us through
the game’s warmer locales, as Link ends up in the fire dungeons we all
instinctively knew were coming.
The first takes us through the Fire Sanctuary. Sitting atop the previously seen Eldin Volcano,
the Fire Sancuary is filled with strange creatures, including a pair of giant
lava hand. While there you’ll come across the Mogmo Mitts, which you’ll use to
dig into underground tunnels throughout the dungeon. Link also heads to the
Volcano Summit, where he’s got to be a little quieter than he normally would be,
as you’ll see in the trailer below.
We also have a bunch of new screens you’ll see
below that show off more of those areas. As we wait for Zelda’s November 20
release (the lucky people in the UK get it Nov 18), we appreciate any new info,
but we’re almost worried Nintendo is giving away too much. Sure, the game is no
doubt incredibly deep and these trailers probably barely scratch the surface,
but we feel we now know exactly what we’ll be doing for the first few hours or
more. Have these trailers left you feeling the same way?
