Link Goes Exploring in Skyward Sword Video Blowout

Nintendo is apparently very keen to show you as much of Skyward Sword as possible before it comes out.

With the release of Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword mere weeks away, Nintendo has turned up the promotional media machine to "deluge" and released three new videos showing Link discovering one of the game's earliest temples, as well as showing off the opening cinematic in its entirety.

As is often the case in Zelda games, the back story is filled with evil creatures appearing and generally making life miserable for everyone. The art style used is somewhere between cave paintings and water colors, aided by the rather impressive orchestral soundtrack.

The second video shows Link exploring Faron Wood, as well as meeting its denizens, both friendly and unfriendly. Link seems a lot more nimble than he has in previous Zelda games, helped in no small part by his new dash ability.

Finally, there's the Sky Temple, a seemingly odd name for an underground structure, but whatever. We've seen snippets of this temple before, and a lot of the fight at the end with Ghiharim.

While none of the videos are very long, there's still quite a lot of content there. It's almost getting to the point where it feels like the game holds very few surprises any more. That's not a great place to be with six weeks still to go before it comes out.

Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword comes out for Wii on November 20th.
