The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward SwordExplain the storyline, and the characters of The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword.
In this game, Zelda isn’t even a princess when it begins, so the story is laced with the action that will happen in the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. It’s a completely different story which happens when Zelda and Link are young and we see how their special bond starts.

What are some tricks and tips?
You have the option to see all the controls on the right side that shows the Wii remote, kind of like a guide. You can choose from the menu to see the controls on screen or not and depending if you’re a newbie or pro you can set the controls to your liking.

Gamers can use the Wii Nunchuck and the Wii Motion Plus both together. In a way you can personalize Link in the game so you hold the Wii Motion Plus as a sword) and the Wii Nunchuck as your shield. There are also different ways to hold the shield and the sword. If you want to do a slash, hold the Wii Remote as a sword and slash away!

What makes this different than any of the other Zelda games?
The graphics, colours, and environments make it different than any of the other Zelda games. As well as the fact that Link and Zelda come from Skyloft, the island in the sky. Zelda disappears and Link has to go find her on land traveling back and forth from Skyloft to the land most of the time in his quests.

Where can Vervegirls purchase the game and how much is it?
Future Shop has a limited edition bundle which includes the game, Wii Remore Plus, and Zelda Music CD priced at $69.99 or you can purchase the game bundle that includes the Zelda Music CD for $49.99.
