A new video showing Skyward Sword gameplay reveals some interesting insight on what players can expect this holiday season. The beginning of the video shows flight mechanics atop a Skyloft bird. At any time you can descend below the clouds and back up again to the central town.

In the next portion of the gameplay demo we see Link doing some exploring and kicking some baddie butt while a Nintendo rep explains how deep dungeon crawling, puzzling and item discovering are. He also explains that you are on a constant quest to upgrade your weapons by finding “ingredients” in chests, a nice change from the boring rupees we usually find.

Video after the break.

What do you think about flying around Skyloft? And item upgrading? Exciting stuff. As always, stay tuned on ZU for more updates.
