Help Link on his mission to rescue Zelda, a childhood friend who must now face the challenges that her destiny has in store for her. In the first chapter of the Legend of Zelda series, you will soar through the air across floating islands and then make your way down to the complex surface world.
During this high-altitude adventure, you must go down to the problematic planet below.
Your journey will take you through dangerous dungeons full of riddles and challenges. If you have a flying beetle, you can explore hidden areas, and if you get a whip, you can figure out inventive ways to impede your foes. Each item you get will provide you with access to even more adventure.
You are responsible for determining your course through The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword game, whether searching for hidden information, practicing with your sword, or improving your gear.
Utilizing intuitive motion controls, you must gently swing your sword and angle your slashes to get through your opponent’s defenses.
The motions that Link makes in-game will match the angle at which you strike him with the Joy-Con controller. This will result in immersive swordplay that focuses on strategy and precision.
Swordplay takes on an element of the puzzle genre when one must determine how, when, and where to strike—moving quickly. Fly through the air and cut enemies with simply the use of buttons. A Nintendo Switch Pro Controller also provides access to button controls for various games.
