The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Screenshots



The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword marks a turning point for The Legend of Zelda franchise. The introduction of full motion control enabled by the Wii MotionPlus accessory synchronizes player movements with Link’s actions while offering the most intuitive play control of any game in The Legend of Zelda franchise to date.

FEATURES:

• Thanks to the required Wii MotionPlus accessory, every movement of Link’s
sword matches the player’s motion with exact precision. If players motion left
to right, Link swings from left to right. The precision play control is applied
to enemies as well, as players must contemplate strategy when battling
opponents that actively try to defend against attacks.

• Wii MotionPlus puts an arsenal of items at the player’s disposal. It offers a
multitude of actions with just simple, intuitive motions. Players will try their
hand at firing a bow, tossing bombs and using a whip to battle enemies and
solve puzzles.

• The game will also introduce a distinct new graphical style perfectly suited to
the franchise’s fantastical universe, like a painting come to life.

• The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will offer a multitude of new game-play
mechanics, giving it a refreshingly different feel from all of the past titles in
the series.
