*insert terrifyingly loud fangirl squee here*
Skyward Sword, the latest installment in the Legend of Zelda series, and Wii predecessor to Twilight Princess, is one of the most highly anticipated games of the year by industry experts and teenage gamers alike. With graphics like a Monet painting, Motion Plus gameplay like you’re actually wielding a master sword, and our ever-adorable green-clad hero warrior, well, it’s worth the wait.
LoZ: SS has been in production for over five years, since the Wii first came out. It will be originally released solely for the Wii, but next year a version will become compatible with the Wii U, the next step in casual gaming.
It has big shoes to fill, however. The Ocarina of Time is hailed by most as one of the best video games ever made. Twilight Princess‘ dark and detailed graphics made it incredibly fun to play through. And in Majora’s Mask…. well, Skull Kid. ‘Nuff said. ❤
I’m really, really looking forward to the new game. Even if nothing changes from Twilight Princess but the art style, it’ll be worth it. Here’s some screenshots:
