The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword lays the foundation for the events in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, which is frequently cited as one of the greatest video games of all time, and allows players to guide Link on his journey through a multi-layered world that seamlessly blends intense ground-based adventuring with breathtaking exploration above the clouds.

Glide through the skies on the back of a majestic bird and dive through the clouds to the continent below exclusively using Wii MotionPlus technology for the first time in a Zelda game.

This new and epic quest is set against a backdrop of a distinctly unique graphical art style and boasts a soundtrack which features beautifully orchestrated music within the game.
