Nintendo Reveals Zelda: Skyward Sword Trailer

Posted by James Newton

Soak it up

The avalanche of Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword videos continues: we've seen the romance trailer and sword tutorial, but here's a trailer showing all sorts of other good stuff.

The suitably epic video is embedded below, but be warned: it contains footage of previously unseen boss battles, as well as bamboo, balancing, balls and birds.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is set for release next month.

Looks like Beetle is in Skyward Sword too. How did he end up there?

Silly nintendolife thats a trailer not the opening. The opening was halfway leaked last week at a skyward sword demo. Its kinda like the wind waker one just using watercolors and brush strokes instead of colored windowpane glass.

Crap! That's one EXCITING VIDEO! I'm really and truly looking forward to playing this game. Only, our Wii has fallen to the floor so much that I wish this was on the 3DS instead.

@James You guys posted "We'll have another Skyward Sword trailer for you tomorrow." and now you're claiming you guys didn't know this existed? Kinda sounded like you were spreading it on purpose, but okay.

But yeah, what KaiserGX said. Bummer.

@Tealovertoma I was referring to the sword tutorial which, due to various circumstances, went up on Sunday instead. It's not me playing dumb: I really didn't know about this trailer.

Man, trailers that show things that were in other trailers that we've already seen are the best.

(They're not.)

Somehow, though, it's only got me more pumped for this, so I guess it's served it's purpose. :D

this video was out last week but still good enough to see it again ToT
you can see elements of many zelda games such as beetle wind waker, the gust jar from minish cap, the boat with canon from wind waker and phantom hourglass, the double clawshot from twilight, windfish type from links awakening and i think many other surprises that they have included, this will be a milestone on zelda series and one of the most richest stories in the series....

Common guys, a website is a website. If you saw it already so what? Most of us haven't. Leave James alone, he's doing an awesome job by most accounts.
This is the only site I go to for this stuff so I don't care where it came from first. now I see it and I'm crazy excited.

I hadn't seen it, so thank-you, that's the best trailer yet. I really hope the game is as good as it looks as the Ninten-haters play the game extensively (at all?) BEFORE they give their opinion on it ;).

I wonder, at this point, if Beedle is a time-traveler? The Links and Zeldas all look and act somewhat different in nearly every incarnation throughout the centuries but Beedle always appears the same and has the same "OH!" catchphrase.

@link_hn: Where is the Gust Jar? I've watched this video few times now and for some reason didn't notice it. Could you or someone else please tell me.
Minish Cap is one of my favorite Zelda games and I liked using Gust Jar :)

Typo in the article, it says "is released next month" released is past tense, should be "will release next month" hehe

Edit: Oh dear god, at :59 that looks like the water temple D:

It's great but I think now they're releasing too much information.

And thanks for spoiling me gabrielwoj. perhaps next time you could decrease the size of the spoiler's text?

I preordered this game a few days game a few days ago. The only other games I've preordered in my lifetime are Zelda OoT, Zelda OoT 3D, and maybe the diablo Ii expansion. Really looking forward to this!

I still can't get over how the beginning of this game sounds like a bad 80's movie, but holy crap the rest of this really does look amazing.

I never have been dissatisfied with a CONSOLE Zelda before, but im going to remain healthily skeptical that it won't blow me away as much as Ocarina and Windwaker.

It's kind of funny how they upload 1080p HD videos of a 480p game, but whatever. I bought a component cable for my Wii, so I guess I can't talk.
