One of the most storied franchises in history soars to new heights. The Legend of Zelda™ : Skyward Sword shakes up the tried-and-true adventure game formula and marks a turning point for the franchise. The introduction of full motion controls enabled by Wii MotionPlus™ technology synchronizes player movements with Link’s actions while offering the most intuitive play control of any game in the series to date.

• The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword boasts the most realistic sword combat of any
game to date, turning every encounter into a challenge of both brains and brawn. Wii
MotionPlus technology accurately translates the angle of every sword slice, effectively
putting Link’s blade in the player’s hand. Analyzing enemy attack and defense
tendencies and counteracting with precise swings of the sword provide a satisfying
experience that blends puzzle-solving with a new and distinctly unique combat system.
• Explore a massive, multilayered world that seamlessly blends soaring exploration in a
sea of clouds with intense ground-based adventuring that blurs the line between the
main world and traditional Zelda dungeons. Link™
soars through the skies on the back
of a noble bird and dives beneath the clouds to the continent below in an epic quest
that lays the foundation for the events in the critically acclaimed The Legend of Zelda:
Ocarina of Time.
• Prepare for intense puzzle-solving as only The Legend of Zelda games can deliver.
Exploration of the forests, volcanoes and deserts requires players to think on their feet
as they solve puzzles, overcome obstacles and escape deadly traps. Once they find
their way to each dungeon, they are confronted by even more puzzles guarded by
fiendish enemies.
• The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword redefines the traditional Zelda framework and
introduces an arsenal of items, upgrades and rewards unlike any game in the franchise
to date. The adventure guides players into, out of and back to dungeons and areas
they’ve already completed. Along the way, Link gathers a massive inventory of peculiar
items and resources that can be used to upgrade many of his weapons and equipment.

Keeping it simple and on a tight budget. I'll look back on the year and tell you, the games I'd be looking out for to get cheap during the biggest shopping weekend of the year. And a quick preview of the new releases.

Pretty sure Amazon is going to be blowing it out bigger and better than last year. has recently had some good deals as well, but they beat you up on shipping. Toy R Us loves in store Buy 2 Get 1 Free. Target will have some great stuff in store as well. Can't wait to see what Kmart is planning. Gamestop? Whether you go in store or online, shop around first. 

Before we get into the Black Friday stuff. Zelda Skyward Sword and WWE '12 will be releasing before the chaos of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Pro gamer FnJimmy goes hands-on with Skyward Sword in the Nintendo booth. Watch as he destroys the first demo and has time for another.

FnJimmy and I headed to the Nintendo booth to play some Zelda Skyward Sword. You can choose the bird riding level, a dungeon level, or a boss battle. They only give you a 10 minute demo to keep the lines moving and FnJimmy had played a little bit of the combat last year, so I encouraged him to take on the bird riding.

Most of the people in front of us had tried the bird riding too, none of them seemed able to beat it in the 10 minutes allowed. Noobs... give that Wii mote to FnJimmy and watch him do his best Fred Savage from that one movie from the 80's...

Uhhh... No, the other one...

That's better

Yeah, he may be a n00b at FPS games, but FnJimmy was born with a Nintendo controller in his hand. Okay... back to reality... Watch FnJimmy rail the birds so fast he still has time to do the dungeon level. "Good job, Jimmy!"

FnJimmy had a huge grin on his face after that and wouldn't let us leave the Nintendo booth until I had recorded his takes. So here is the offical FnJimmy hands-on impressions of The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword.

The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword releases this holiday season for the Nintendo Wii.
