Nintendo is going to show up at the popular San Diego Comic-Con event that will be held throughout the next few days. Comic-Con is an international event held once every year that displays the latest comics, movies, television series, and video games. Many companies from the entertainment industry along with famous figures come to announce new things and talk about their latest developments.

A lot of games including a demo of Skyward Sword will be featured and open to the public to play. The good news is that Nintendo has released a trailer for Skyward Sword that you can view after the jump!

Although the trailer is very similar to the one from E3, it reveals two different villagers at the beginning and a huge Goron, along with new gameplay footage different from the E3 trailer.

And to continue celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Zelda series along with the launch of Ocarina of Time 3D and the upcoming Skyward Sword,  Nintendo has commissioned an artist to create a large chalk drawing at the panel! The art will be created on-site during the several days at Comic Con as the artist details the design throughout the event. If you are heading to Comic-Con, be sure to stop by, take pictures, and check on it!

The Skyward Sword demo will most likely be the same one from E3, and nothing new will most likely be revealed, but we will keep you up to date about anything that would be revealed during the next few days at Comic Con.

    I neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed this game!!

  • Hmm, i'm afraid Zelda is going for a cartoon look… again. As "Twilight Princess" was the "OoT" of the Wii, "Skyward Sword" is definitely the "Wind Waker" of the Wii. Kind of a little put off by it but, hey, it's another Zelda game for the Wii so I will most definitely be playing.

    • Poe Princess Mara

      You're right, Twilight Princess was like OoT. TOO MUCH like OoT.
      So that is why it's about time we had something completely original…like Skyward Sword. Which by the way not only has very different graphics to WW but also different gameplay, a different setting, a different story, different enemies and different everything. And there was nothing wrong with WW anyway. It was a great game.

      • TheMaverickk

        Even if style wise Skyward Sword takes a little from Wind Waker, overall the gameplay and story are absolutely and completely different from it.

        Where as Twilight Princess actually burrowed nearly all it's elements from Ocarina of Time and Link to the Past. The realistic style, the temples (you got forest, fire and water temples for your first 3), dark world from Link to the Past…. I could go on.

        As far as story goes I have a lot more to look forward to in Skyward Sword. You've got Master Sword origins, Hylian origins, the interspersed encounters with Lord Girahim. 1 to 1 sword fighting… item development…. unique dungeons.

        My excitement for this Zelda far exceeds that of Twilight Princess back in the day.

    • Poe Princess Mara

      TP isn't even a Wii game anyway. It was made for the Gamecube but then ported to the Wii and given Wii controls.

    • cloverplayer

      don't diss the art style; It's Fabulous!

      • cool story bro

        im gunna hope u are not gay

    • Linkedblaed

      Twilight princess was not a wii game. It was a GC port for the wii.

    • Soulless Creature

      Graphics are not important ! it's a game you play it and have fun not critisize it and be grumpy.

      • dnls2e

        That is absolutely true. Can you imagine there are people who do not want to play the N64 Zelda games (or older), just because of the so called "ugly" graphics?

  • prince

    they fixed link's red earring from E3

    • Poe Princess Mara

      Yeah, I wonder why they made them a different color in the first place. A bit of a weird mistake to make. I was thinking it had something to do with the story but now they changed it, obviously not.

      • prince

        I think it was just part of link's skyloft outfit design. And I wonder why they changed it…maybe because it drew too much attention as a possible plot element…

  • xxx

    i think the colours are a little darker now. thats a good thing

    • TheMaverickk

      That's just the video settings….. it's like those screen shots from way back when that were shown and people were like "ZOMG… toning down the colour for darker Zelda"….. get over it.

      The games art style is based on impressionism, there's supposed t be lots of colour.

  • Xosgni

    Nintendo knew what they were doing when they made this game the way they did. Can't wait until it comes out.

  • Majin Kai

    Eh..It just better have fishing.

  • Kyobf48

    Darmani? lol

  • Keimori

    Interesting, it looks like the Skyloftian people have a difernt Image of the godesses than Hylians do, much more tratitional statue with a whole "Angelic" look, VS the more human like Godesses you see later on.

  • RulerOfAllDucks

    Wow! Amazing! Just simply Amazing!

  • do u like waffles?

    ….. Im sorry, but in my opinion, Zelda does not look right….. Well, i mean she looks fine, but she doesn't really look like Zelda.. That's just my opinion.

    • aeolus

      the first time I saw her I thought "oh hey! its a younger TP Zelda with blonde hair and bangs!" She also looks a lot like child Zelda from OoT 3DS, if she hadn't been wearing that head dress thing.

    • Amariel

      Well, not everyone is the exact same are they? Think about it, do you look exactly like your ancestors? I think I personally kinda like the new Zelda design.

      • Keimori

        I REALY Like Zeldas new design myself, it works for the simpler town that she and link call home in this one.

  • aeolus

    who's excited about that Goron?! lol. I'm glad they threw that in for us

    • Mork

      Gorons are confirmed to be in Skyward Sword now. Yes! It reminds me of the Goron merchants from The Wind Waker.

      • Soulless Creature

        Yeah return of the Gorobag, looks like these Gorons travel.

    • shooflypi

      I LOVE the new Goron! So very much!

  • theONLYzeldaFAN

    looks great…i hope it has music control like ww/ oot/ mm….i miss playing ocrina songs on my game flute……………and i hope its the best game period..

    • adsghdrsf

      You will probably have the harp Sheik is using in OOT. It's Zeldas in this game at first but it's later seen assigned to the Up button on the D-pad.

  • theONLYzeldaFAN


    • TheMaverickk

      LOL…. all Zelda Ocarina of Time cartridges were heavy not just the gold ones. This is because of all the information crammed into the games. The larger the game was, the more chips to store that information were inside.

      The disc won't be twice as heavy as other discs 😛

      • theONLYzeldaFAN

        its a joke u dumb [email protected] of coarse the disc wont be twice as heavy captain obvious….its a metaphore as in saying that it should have 2x as much info on the game disc

        • mcdude910

          His post was a joke too. Hence the ":P" Calm yourself.

  • Maora

    Need. XD

  • Fizzy Straw

    Did anybody else notice how FAST Link was running? Wow! He was really booking it at the end where the flamey monster was chasing him. I'm impressed. I've never seen him run that fast without rolling.

    that is all

    • bllarrrggg

      Hmmmm, I wonder if there will be Gorons. . . .

    • shooflypi

      +1 for Gorons!

  • veeronic

    enough of that song, fix link's eyes, fix "zelda's" neck, and unstupify the birds!

    • Keimori

      whats with the quotetaionmarks?

      • Linkachu

        The "Zelda" in the trailer doesn't look like Zelda at all. She's nothing like Zelda.

        • mcdude910

          She doesn't look a lot like her descendants, no, but did Tetra look like Zelda from Twilight Princess? No. TP Zelda had dark hair, but I don't see you guys complaining about that.

          • SageofDarkness

            Amen! I personally love her look compared to TP Zelda. Plus her look must complement the art style, WW – TP fusion. Oh and by the way I just want to mention that Tetra isn't a descendant of TP Zelda, TP is on the otherside of the timeline. Sorry I just like being picky :p

          • mcdude910

            I'm a hardcore theorist, and I didn't even notice my mistake… Well, while I'm here, I might as well dump my timeline 😛

  • KyleLink

    Goron! :3 Yayz! Hope there are Zoras now.

    • bllarrrggg

      There will probably be Zoras. =)

      • prada

        There better BE Zoras!

        • mcdude910

          Did you mean to capitalize "better" instead of "be"? Whatever 😛 I really hope there are Zoras as well!

  • TelepathicPebble

    I'm used to the impressionistic look now, fine okay it looks nice. But the trees on Skyloft look a bit too Animal Crossing like for my taste….particularly the leaves.

    • mcdude910

      I'll give you that.

    • Tani

      Well…I guess it sorta does, somewhat like a more realistic animal crossing anyway.

  • GorCoronSumo

    That just took me totally by surprise…

  • GorCoronSumo

    Bet that engineer dude makes the beetle…

  • Shigeru Miyamoto is my dad!

    • No he is not. If he is, get a picture of you and him on your website liar.

  • Sage of Hyrule

    To all of those Skyward Sword haters out there…

    Wait until you play it. It's pretty awesome.

    I'm at Comic-Con this weekend. I promise you, it's amazing.

    • Soulless Creature

      Wait… there Skyward Sword haters, how can people hate this game.

      • mcdude910

        People (Not me) generally hate SS for the following reasons: Zelda doesn't look like she always did (even though many of the Zeldas don't look like their descendants [TP Zelda]), Ghirahim looks/acts like a freak (It adds to the mystery, though I can agree that it's creepy), the birds are pretty much ripped right from Avatar (I'll give you that), the art style is too cartoony (I like the impressionist art style. I think it's beautiful), music sucks (They're most likely referring to the music in this trailer. It doesn't sound very Zelda-like, but it's really cool that if played backwards, you get Zelda's Lullaby! That's freaking amazing! Never talk bad about Koji Kondo!). I basically debunked all of those… except for the birds… Those are ripped from Avatar… The only con I see about Skyward Sword so far, is that it's not out yet!

        • TnzSki

          Can you please fill me in on what makes these birds similar to the creatures in Avatar? I'm obviously missing something if it's so clear that Nintendo stole the idea from Avatar.

          • mcdude910

            It's not the model of the bird itself. It's the fact that they jump off the ledge and the bird flies out, and catches them. It's the style that the bird, and the people use when riding the bird that is directly from the movie, Avatar. But that certainly doesn't make it a bad game.

        • SageofDarkness

          I can't wait for SS and to all you haters, look above this post. Unless you think ripping from Avatar ruins an entire game then you know you have to wait till you try it, but IMO it is definitely going to be good 🙂 PS: I like your insightful comments mcdude910, people like you balance out irritating trolling

          • mcdude910

            I really appreciate that, SageofDarkness. Thank you.

        • dnls2e

          The red bird looks more like Ho-Oh of Pokémon fame.

  • Random comment!

    Gorons are nice, but I wanna see some Zoras badly!

    • cloverplayer

      I hope they do better than they did with the twilight princess zoras!

      • shooflypi

        Agreed. But the Goron looks AWESOME so pretty good chances the Zoras will too

  • 5 Thoughts on this presumeably awesome game
    1. From what I've seen, the controlls aren't "clunky
    2. The art style fits ZELDA so quit your bitching. The Legend of Zelda was never meant o be "gritty" and 'realistic'. It's a FANSTASY, who says fantasies have to be gritty and real?
    3. Mix of my 2 favorite games, Wind Waker and Twilight Princess.
    4. I saw a Goron. Since there is water, I am 89.567% shure there will be Zoras/ Zolas
    5. May come out anywhere from September 1st – December 31st. It's Nintendo. You never know what they'll do next.

    • Keimori

      I agree with everypoint but 5.
      Considering that it'd be a horrible marketing decision to release it any latter than, I'm gonna say the 15th of December , anything later and they run risk of no-one buying it on acounts of they are most likely traveling for the holidays, and people don't realy like buying stuff that late because of the "Last minute shopping" stigma, they asume the malls'll be crazzy and choose to avoid it if posible, prefering to rest up with the family members they are most likely vecationing with.

      Now of corse this dosn't include everyone, but alot of people do.
      In all likelyhood, Nintendo'll proboly release it at a more opertune time like mid November at the peak of that early shopping period thats popular these days.

  • Soulless Creature

    The statue, there is only one statue and it's big. Who is it supposed to resemble? What did the person do to have a statue made in that persons honour? And here's the really important bit why is there a triangle not the triforce, but a plain triangle on the statues head.

  • Drizzt

    why is everyone dissing TP? that was a worthy edition to the Zelda series. and on a more random note i REALLY hope there are Zoras 'cause i kinda like a bit more than Gorons. Gorons scare me…

    • GorCoronSumo

      Want a Goron Hug?

  • shooflypi

    I love how the eye on the wall reacts to Link downthrusting the skullata!

  • supergiraloz

    Hey, just something i noticed is that Link is Right-handed in this game, like he was in Twilight princess (the wii version, not the GC one)
    do you think they made it so you can change what hand you hold your sword in in respect to the lefties?

    • >_<

      they already said they were gonna do that.

  • TrustMe101

    The Goron has a drawing of the Triforce on his bag!! :O

  • Tani

    Oh boy! I can't wait! I have never played wind waker or spirit tracks so I don't know what its like to move around the world freely and discover stuff, I have a feeling this will change that!

  • dark tri-force

    ive always wanted to fly in loz

  • LOZfreack123

    it looks like its gonna be so much better than all of the rest of zelda games!!!AAARRRGGG!!!! i cant wait to play it!!!!!!!!! 😀
