The Legend of Zelda™: Skyward Sword marks a turning point for The Legend of Zelda franchise.

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.
