At its E3 press conference this morning, Nintendo revealed a new Zelda game: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. It will be released in 2011.
The game uses WiiMotion Plus to give players one-to-one control over Link’s sword and shield. Graphically, the gameplay shown at E3 will look very familliar to fans of the series. No huge stylistic changes were made to the look of the game. Judging from the on-stage demo, the focus here is on the gameplay not so much the look.
New items werr shown off. The first: A beetle that flies. It seems to work a little like a remote control plane in the game. You fly it around, and can pick up items on the fly. Also: A whip, which looks like a lot of fun with the WiiMotion plus. Seems very responsive to the controls.
