Nintendo has released new gameplay details for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Release Date: 11/10/2011

Nintendo has released new gameplay details for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword as it continues to build anticipation for the game's fast-approaching launch.

The first Zelda adventure to be created exclusively for Wii, Skyward Sword will use the Wii MotionPlus peripheral to offer precise one-to-one control over hero Link's sword attacks, as well as equipment such as the bow and slingshot.

One of the new additions made to accommodate the game's motion-sensing capabilities is dowsing, an ability that lets players aim their sword around the screen in first-person mode to sense the location of hidden objects.

Another new innovation is the Dash ability, which allows Link to run faster and perform acrobatic feats while the A button is held, at the cost of some of his stamina.

The stamina gauge is also essential for using techniques such as the devastating Spin Attack, meaning players will need to pace themselves wisely on their adventure.

Nintendo will release The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword on Wii in November 2011, with a special edition version also being made available that includes a gold Wii Remote Plus and a soundtrack CD.
