The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is a sweeping adventure in an expansive world. The game takes players flying in the air, searching through dungeons and exploring on land. Players help heroic Link explore volcanoes, forests, deserts and the sky. The epic quest lays the foundation for the events in the critically acclaimed The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
The game uses the motion controls of the Wii Remote Plus controller (or a Wii Remote controller with a Wii MotionPlus accessory) to immerse players in the action, whether swinging the sword to fight enemies, tossing bombs or shooting arrows. Players must solve battles by analyzing enemies' attacks and defenses and coming up with effective countermeasures.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is available at the MSRP of $49.99. A limited-edition version is offered at $69.99 and includes a gold-colored Wii Remote Plus controller.
