Nintendo UK has issued a press release detailing the background and introductory story of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. We already heard details about Faron Woods and the Skyview Temple earlier today. Here’s the new information:
Introduction: The new game’s storyline begins in Skyloft, an island town suspended high in the sky, on the day before young Link™ is to compete in a major bird-flying competition. The winner of the contest will earn the honour of taking part in a special ceremony with Zelda™.
Link and Zelda: Friends since childhood, Link and Zelda have always shared a special bond. Events in the new game will add even more depth to their relationship.
Groose: Link’s nemesis at school, Groose, plays a significant role in the early moments of the new game. This bully of a character not only threatens Link’s chances to win the bird-flying competition, but he also reveals a jealous streak toward Link and Zelda’s special bond.
Fi: Early on in Link’s new adventure, he encounters Fi, the spirit of the powerful Goddess Sword. Fi’s guidance proves to be crucial as Link goes forth on a challenging quest that will ultimately result in the creation of the Master Sword.
Zelda’s father: Gaepora, Zelda’s father, is the headmaster of Link’s school. As such, he has knowledge of the history and legends of Skyloft..
I think I’ve already read this, either from a previous post, or Nintendo Power. I think it is both to tell the truth.
Yeah, I agree. This really does sound old.
This sounds great, it’ll be nice to actually explore the relationship between Link and Zelda. Also: Gaepora? As in, Kaepora Gaebora? Possible link there, hmm?
I see what you did there. Possible LINK there?
“possible LINK there” I see what u did thar
Link or link? 0_0 Confused!
I have decided to stop reading or watching anything Skyward Sword related. From here on out I will just wait till the release to see everything myself instead of saying, “yea I saw that in the trailers.” I recommend u guys do the same. It was hard to avoid the Faron Woods post yesterday but I did it
I didn´t , but I am going to avoid everything else too, because they are releasing too much!!
This has all been posted before. Move along. Nothing to see here.
more depth to Zelda and Link’s relationship later in the game? Oh I see where Nintendo is going with this
I’ve read this before.
