About this item

The epic adventure sends this storied series to new heights and marks a turning point for the franchise. The game uses the precision motion controls of the Wii Remote Plus (or a Wii Remote controller with a Wii MotionPlus accessory) and Nunchuk controllers to map on-screen action to the player's movements. When a player swings the Wii Remote Plus controller, Link appears to swing his sword in exactly the same way. Different enemies have different battle tactics, so players must analyze their approach and develop counterattacks that play on the enemies' weaknesses. The game's wide array of items also use full motion controls, letting players roll bombs, shoot arrows and guide flying objects like never before.

  • The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword boasts the most realistic sword combat of any game to date, turning every encounter into a challenge of both brains and brawn. Wii MotionPlus technology accurately translates the angle of every sword slice, effectively putting Links blade in the players hand. Analyzing enemy attack and defense tendencies and counteracting with precise swings of the sword provide a satisfying experience that blends puzzle-solving with a new and distinctly unique combat system.
  • Explore a massive, multilayered world that seamlessly blends soaring exploration in a sea of clouds with intense ground-based adventuring that blurs the line between the main world and traditional Zelda dungeons. Link soars through the skies on the back of a noble bird and dives beneath the clouds to the continent below in an epic quest that lays the foundation for the events in the critically acclaimed The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
  • Prepare for intense puzzle-solving as only The Legend of Zelda games can deliver. Exploration of the forests, volcanoes and deserts requires players to think on their feet as they solve puzzles, overcome obstacles and escape deadly traps. Once they find their way to each dungeon, they are confronted by even more puzzles guarded by fiendish enemies.
  • The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword redefines the traditional Zelda framework and introduces an arsenal of items, upgrades and rewards unlike any game in the franchise to date. The adventure guides players into, out of and back to dungeons and areas theyve already completed. Along the way, Link gathers a massive inventory of peculiar items and resources that can be used to upgrade many of his weapons and equipment.
  • ESRB Rating: EVERYONE 10+ with Animated Blood, Comic Mischief, and Fantasy Violence

Best Zelda out there

I am what you would call a "Zeldahard". I have been playing them my entire life, I can beat them all without the guide, I own the posters, soundtracks, gold editions, etc. And so far, I am very impressed with this Zelda. The game is the most challenging by far of them all, with satisfying game play and excitement. I would recommend it to all ages. The storyline is the funnest and most creative of them all, and there is multiple new things/items that our new to the Zelda franchise that make it all that funner. E.R. Dernhelm

  • No, it doesn't include the motion controller. There used to be an adapter that would connect to the end of the non-motion controller, but they stopped making it I think.

  • You have to buy it seperately. The newer, more expensive controllers have it already built in, but if you have an origininal remote like we do you can buy the extention for somewhere around $16.

  • If you buy the Gold package, a gold colored Wii motion plus remote will be included. If you just purchase the game, it will not be included.

Every other retailer we've browsed is advertising a bundled bonus music cd which is comprised of orchestral arrangements of select songs that will be performed at The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony Concert. (This isn't just in the Gold "Skyward Sword" package; it comes with the stand-alone game, as well.)
by an anonymous customer 11/12/2011
  • Yes, it comes with the music CD! This game is awesome!

  • Yes. All games come with the CD. I bought the Gold package and it was included. My brother then purchased the stand-alone game and the CD was also included with it. (Both games were purchased at Wal-mart.)

  • Every copy comes with the music cd. It does not matter what retailer is selling the game, as every copy includes the music cd.
