The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword – New Abilities, Locations, Creatures and Items

By   /   5 years ago


Nintendo has revealed new information about the upcoming Zelda game, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, detailing the Falon Woods and added gameplay features. Here’s a look at what the forest has to offer and how you can use some freshly revealed features:

Faron Woods and the Skyview Temple
The Faron Woods is a forest that Link first visits after leaving Skyloft, an island suspended high in the clouds. Through the Falon Woods, Link comes to the Skyview Temple, where Zelda may be being held. Experience of dwelling on surface is new and strange for Link, as the people of Skyloft have never been there before.

Dash
Dashing is an ability which allows Link to run faster. By pressing A, Link dashes, moving faster and gaining acrobatic abilities, such as quickly climbing up walls to hold onto a cliff. However, this ability uses up Links stamina, as do other abilities such as certain powerful attacks. Stamina regenerates over time, but if it is completely depleted, then Link becomes slower while he recoup for energy.

Dowsing
Dowsing is an ability that somewhat resembles the Colossus-finding ability in Shadow of Colossus. By holding up his sword, Link can find the intended target as the sword flashes to show its position. This technique can be used to search for many objects and characters in the game. In Faron Woods, Link uses it to search for Zelda, guiding him to Skyview Temple, where Zelda’s aura can be detected.

Kikwi
The Kikwi are fuzzy little creatures that Link encounters during his journey in the forest. He can find these creatures by using dowsing to aid him in the search for Zelda.

Slingshot
The slingshot is a basic item, being one of the first items Link receives. It isn’t very powerful, but can stun enemies and can activate objects in the environment, hence being very handy.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will be available as a limited edition bundle, featuring a copy of the game, a CD featuring selected orchestral arrangements from the The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony performance and a rare gold-coloured Wii Remote Plus controller, bearing the Hylian Crest.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will be available world-wide by the end of November this year.
