Everything that glitters...

Arguably one of the best bits of Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker was the treasure-hunting sections that made a thrill out of exploring the expansive ocean, and the idea returned again in Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. Even without so much water everywhere, treasure is just as important in Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, as the video below shows.

At certain points in his journey, Link will encounter mysterious rocks which — once struck with a fully charged sword — send up beacons in the skyworld, leading you toward bonus items.

Unfortunately the video below ends just before the crucial musical pay-off and reveal of exactly what the treasure item is, but it's still good to find one more reason to await the game's arrival in November.
