Zelda: Skyward Sword videos show off romance, swordplay

When Nintendo said that the upcoming Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword would be "like a school drama," they weren't kidding. Link must deal with all the challenges of school life, including a bully. Yes, apparently Heroes of Time can get picked on in school too!

To make things even more awkward, the headmaster of Link's school is Zelda's father. And, as evidenced by the "Romance" trailer released by Nintendo today, he and Zelda seem a lot more friendly in this latest adventure.

Although the game has a much more lighthearted start than other Zelda games, Skyward Sword promises to be one of the most important to the franchise canon. The narrative is set very early on in the Zelda timeline, and promises to "lay the foundation for the events that occur in the rest of the series."

Skyward Sword will be available on November 20th. A limited-edition bundle including a gold Wii Motion Plus controller will also be available on the same day.
