The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword Heats Up
Link really loves volcanoes, magma, and fire in Nintendo's newest batch of media.
10.28.11 - 5:22 PM

When Nintendo promised 'regular' updates on The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, we didn't know at the time that 'regular' meant 'weekly' ... but we're not complaining. Last week's batch of videos let us look at Eldin Volcano, among other things. Link returns here as he makes his way to the Fire Sanctuary, where he'll find Mogma Mitts, yet another useful item that lets him dig up items from this area's soft spots in the ground. At some point later, he gets thrown from the top of Eldin by a volcanic eruption.

Below is the Fire Sanctuary:

And the volcano's summit:

Back in the skies, you can play minigames just for fun - such as Pumpkin Pull, a shooting game involving flying pumpkins. A shame this title is out way after Halloween...

In addition to the above clips we also have added 25 new screens from these areas, which, as always, can be found in the gallery below. Be sure to check back for more media and info; at this rate, that would be in another week or so. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for the Wii releases on November 20th for $49.99 US, or you can pick up a limited edition bundle with a gold-coloured Wiimote for $69.99 US.
