About this item

Important Made in USA Origin Disclaimer: For certain items sold by Walmart on Walmart.com, the displayed country of origin information may not be accurate or consistent with manufacturer information. For updated, accurate country of origin data, it is recommended that you rely on product packaging or manufacturer information.
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.

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

I've been awaiting the release of Skyward Sword since the rumors first started to circulate. This game does not disappoint. With Skyward Sword's beautiful graphics and amazing game play, you really feel like you're the Hero himself! Even if you're not really familiar with the Zelda universe, I really recommend this game.

Besides the somewhat playable Twilight Princess spin-off, this was the very first Legend of Zelda game that I had ever played. I fell in absolute love with the sword gameplay, especially the amount of accuracy my swings of the Wii remote. This game features challenging puzzles that would confuse a younger player, (IE 9-10 year olds), but has hit a sweet spot for players over the age of twelve. I found myself confused many times, but eventually figured out the correct course of actions. I spent well over fifty hours beating the main plot, which can be translated as less than a dollar per hour of fun! After you beat you main story, you are able to take on the game once more in "Hero Mode." Hero Mode is a more difficult version of the game, with redesigned dungeons. This ups the replay value ten-fold! In the official Zelda timeline, this game is credited as being the first chronologically, but is perfect for beginners in the Zelda universe. I would suggest this game to everyone and anyone. I find this game to the best Wii game that I have held the pleasure of playing. Miyamoto and the entire Nintendo team really outdid themselves on this game that may, and probably will, always be considered a classic example of how motion controls should be.

I am a serious Zelda fangirl, and this did not disappoint me! I absolutely love the controls, you really feel like you're in total control of Link. It's previous (Twilight Princess) was my favorite, but now this one is a very close runner-up! It also has a new fresh twist. The game is still like the Zelda's we know and love, but with new gadgets, story, gameplay, and worlds! EXCELLENT!

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.)
