New Skyward Sword footage
Here we see Link upgrading his weapons by collecting things that monsters have dropped. This has been done in a few games out there before and in other games where Link has had a level 2 or level 3 upgrade to a level it’s usually been found in the dungeon (see Links Awakening). I think this is a nice addition to the game and I hope it also brings in a level of customisation (say changing the colour of your shield for example). My only main concern is that the item information will happen every time you get one as was the case in Wind Waker but hopefully it will just do it the once as in Twilight Princess.
Skyward Sword is released in Europe on the 18th November which is the same day as Super Mario 3D Land and is actually before Japan and the USA get their copy. Japan get it on the 23rd November and the NA regions get it on the 20th. Also it’s my birthday on the 24th 😉
