There are a few things from the trailer that stood out to me. First, I absolutely love the new impressionist art direction Skyward Sword has taken. Â To me, seems to be a compromise between the cel-shading of Wind Waker and the more realistic design of Twilight Princess.
Did you notice how
Princess Zelda fell into the mouth of what looks to be a giant fish? Could it be the Wind Fish, which was the main focus of the Linkâ€™s Awakening storyline? Seems plausible considering Linkâ€™s Awakening was recently released on the eShop.
From what I played at E3, Skyward Sword is easily my most anticipated title to be released this year. All the Wii naysayers will have a hard time discounting Skyward Sword once it hits this holiday, and I have a feeling Wiimotes around the world will be dusted off when the title is finally available.
Side note: I really want a plush of that penguin-squirrel creature, someone make it happen!
