Link’s Adventure Heats Up in the Eldin Volcano, and Music and Game Play Converge in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for Wii

Nintendo has revealed more details about the captivating areas, items and game play in the massive The Legend of Zelda™: Skyward Sword game, launching exclusively for the Wii™ system on Nov. 20. This week, the Eldin Volcano area comes into focus, as well as the connection between music and game play through the new Harp item. Newly revealed game elements include the following:

• Eldin Volcano and the Mogma: After battling Demon Lord Ghirahim in Skyview Temple, Link™ travels to Eldin Volcano where he meets the Mogma, a new race of subterranean creatures. The Mogma help Link traverse this fiery environment, giving him a multitude of tips along the way.

• New Items: In the Eldin Volcano area, Link receives additional items, including Digging Mitts and his first Bomb Bag. With the addition of the Bomb Bag, players can collect bomb flowers, which are essential to puzzle solving. The Wii Remote™ Plus controller offers players a variety of ways to use bombs. Players can throw bombs using an overhead motion or roll them like bowling balls, even putting spin on their trajectory. The Digging Mitts allow players to dig for secret items in marked areas on the ground. In the Earth Temple area, this ability helps Link locate the pieces he needs to open the door to the temple itself.

• Earth Temple: In the Earth Temple, players balance Link on a giant ball as he rolls across pools of molten lava. In this temple, Link must navigate a steep incline while facing the boss enemy Scaldera, a large rock-armored creature.

• Harp: As in previous Zelda games, music plays an important role in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and is integrated into game play. Using the Wii Remote Plus controller, players can play a variety of songs using a new Harp item.

Nintendo will continue to regularly provide fans with select details and information about the game prior to its Nov. 20 launch. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will be available as a standalone game or as part of a limited-edition bundle that also includes a gold-colored Wii Remote Plus controller. Additionally, every copy in the initial production runs of the game will come packaged with a special music CD containing orchestral arrangements of select songs that will be performed at the upcoming The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony Concert.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is now available for pre-order at major retailers throughout North America. A deposit may be required for pre-orders. See individual retailers for details. For more information about the game, visit http://www.zelda.com/skywardsword.

Super Hang-On Review Rewind

When I was a wee lad in the arcades, motorcycle racers were not often a priority for me to spend my quarters. I was too busy playing After Burner, Galaga, or Ms. Pac-Man. But one day, I saw something that stood out from the usual bunch- Sega’s Super Hang-On, initially released in 1987. As I hopped on the mechanical bike and blasted around that first corner, I knew it was worth every quarter spent. I was one with the road- until I crashed seconds later. While I never won the race or played it in the arcade again, I always remembered how much fun it was. Thankfully, most of the traits that made the coin-op version fun translated well on the Sega Genesis.
