Nintendo knows it doesn't
have to shroud the upcoming Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword in enigmatic secrecy
to get you interested. These four new clips introduce some earthbound elements
from the title: the Eldin Volcano area, gateway to the game's Earth Temple.
There's also a look at items hidden in the title's new Goddess Cubes and the
familiar-looking, Motion Plus-controlled harp.
The game's harp continues
the series' theme of musical instruments with the magical power to highlight
their host system's unique control options. Producer Eiji Aonuma has said that
the instrument’s design is the same as that of Sheik's harp from Ocarina – but
not that they're the same instrument. Zelda continuity-nerds will have to
content themselves with the clips' wealth of subtler callbacks to earlier
installments until the game's Nov 20 launch.
