We have a new trailer and several fresh screenshots from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, a new Wii game that marks a turning point for The Legend of Zelda franchise.

The introduction of full motion control enabled by the Wii MotionPlus accessory synchronizes player movements with Link’s actions while offering the most intuitive play control of any game in The Legend of Zelda franchise to date. Thanks to the required Wii MotionPlus accessory, every movement of Link’s sword matches the player’s motion with exact precision. If players motion left to right, Link swings from left to right. The precision play control is applied to enemies as well, as players must contemplate strategy when battling opponents that actively try to defend against attacks.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will launch later this year.
