Nintendo of America released their Skyward Sword commercial. Click the jump to have a look!

This is one of the nicest commercials yet. It shows a young boy playing a very early Zelda game. Several years pass, the same boy playing Ocarina of Time, but as a young adult. Finally, a grown-up father playing Skyward Sword with his son next to him. The commercial shows the nostalgic side of the game, and the people who played the very first Zelda, will be pleased to play Skyward Sword and introduce the series to the next generation.

    The premise is good on paper, but it's rather corny in execution.

  • Siaarn

    The Australian commercial is going to be even worse than this, but that's fine, I'm so excited~

  • John

    • falconfetus8

      This is a 15 year old speaking, but I'm pretty sure 20 year olds don't type in all-caps.

  • MDH

    I expected something cringeworthy, but this was actually pretty well-made! Although I'm still quite a few years younger than the dad portrayed in this commercial.

    It still doesn't beat the Williams commercials though.

  • Ulises

    Let the kid play!!! Thats one selfish father!!!!!

    • mini link

      the game is soo epic he dosen't care for the kid 😛

    • Sage of Hyrule

      That's how it's going to be with my kids someday haha. They're going to say "mommy it's my turn to play!!" and I'll say "No!! Zelda is mommy's game, go play Mario…"

  • zeldass

    SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Corny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Merq

    That's pretty cute 🙂 But it made me feel old. Damn.

    Wait a minute! That's not Robin Williams!

  • Jean D'eau

    Dad: Give me that you n00b. I'll show ye how a real man banishes evil!

  • Guest

    wouldve been better without the narrator tbh. why dont they just show the one with robin and zelda williams?

  • fiercedeityfan

    0:36 The guy looks away while fighting 2 lizalfos. This is the most cheasyest commercial Ive ever seen.

    0:50 to 0:55 The stupid kid cheers when all his dad did was slash the stupid stalfos!!!

  • TheMaverickk

    I figure I'll say it here since I can't submit news but Aunoma announced a new Zelda for the 3DS… it's a brand new game.

    Also on the Majora Mask 3D front he had this to say;

    ""It's something I'm asked about often and I assure you that it is something I've spoken to Miyamoto about. But recently we released The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D as a remake. We are considering the idea, but it didn't seem right to launch a remake one after another, so the next Zelda game on 3DS will be original." "

    Anyways so there is a new Zelda title on the way and excitingly it's going to be w brand new title. Not a sequel to Phantom Hourglass or Spirit Tracks. I'm excited to see what they do.

  • Aw, what a sweet commercial

  • Skyward Hero

    Some form of Ganondorf is going to be the final boss. Ghirahim is just his little slave that does all the dirty work, a la Zant. Then the real Ganondorf will appear just in time for Ocarina of Time.

    • Pyrax

      Hasn't it been confirmed that Ganon nor Ganondorf won't appear in SS?

      • Ashmic

        ganondorf, not ganon

  • bgood97

    Remember how in OOT when the Deku tree sprout said that before Hyrule there was a war? Shouldn't there be a war after or during SS?

    • ijuin

      The war in question happened right before OOT Link was born–his mother was fleeing from it with her baby Link.

  • Teface24

    This is America! We love our corny middle-classed white men!

  • KyleLink

    That's America for you.

  • I found this commercial rather nice. It really was actually emotional. Brought tears to my eyes when SS theme started playing. 🙂

    …Maybe I'm corny. So sue me. But the part with the father and son got to me. It was nice to see that.

  • Twilit Mask of Time

    I love how 80s this commercial is. Nice.

  • god of link

    i actually found it touching and cool

  • It was good, but I think it would have been better if there wasn't the narration.

  • hyRULES

    They need to remove the narration, and add in some heartwarming music and it would be 1000 times better. It would be pretty self explanatory even without the narration

  • Sakume

    I thought it was hilarious that the Dad was playing while the kid just watches and cheers. Totally how I'd react. "Gimme that game."

  • Zephyr

    The dad not letting his little one play? Cute and selfish at the same time. “Corny”? Probably. The narrator? Pah! Now that was a little TOO much. But, this IS Zelda: Skyward Sword we’re talking about here, so I’ll just let this one go.

  • kirby_freak

    Waiiiiitt… The main theme wasn't in Ocarina of Time! :O

  • me

    How dare they skip Windwaker and Twilight Princess.

    • Zephyr

      Unfortunate, I know… Perhaps they didn’t want to extend the commercial. A time limit? All I could see is that they wanted to keep it short. (A little lame, though.)
