E3 ’10: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Announced

The first true Zelda title built from the ground-up for the Wii was the first thing that came up on screen during Nintendo's press conference today. A surprising move, considering Nintendo just loved talking about numbers for the last two years. Wii MotionPlus is in full use here, as it's being used for a ton of actions in the game, from bomb-bowling to the expected sword swinging.

It's abandoned the Twilight Princess look and has opted for something akin to Wind Waker, which from what I'm seeing, looks like the smart choice. It's a shame the live demonstration completely flubbed, but with a 2011 release date, it's going to be a long road for Skyward Sword. Oh dear, it took me this long to tell you what the subtitle was. Well, it's Skyward Sword. Nice name.
