Skyward Sword: New Info on Linkâ€™s Competition and Zeldaâ€™s Dad
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is looking phenomenal so far, and from the recent videos around the web, it seems like Nintendo is really refining the gameplay. From the flying mechanic to Link being able to upgrade his weapons, thereâ€™s a good bit of information for fans who canâ€™t wait for the gameâ€™s release.
One aspect of the game thatâ€™s being kept tightly underwraps is the story; however, thanks to GameInformer, we now know at least two bits of information: who Linkâ€™s rival is going to be, and a small bio of Zeldaâ€™s Dad.
Groose has been Linkâ€™s adversary ever since they were kids. Â Itâ€™ll be interesting to see just how far their rivalry goes, especially once Zelda is thrown into the mix. Is it just a friendly competition, or does Groose want Link out of the way permanently?
According to GameInformer, Zeldaâ€™s dad,Â Gaepora, is “the headmaster at Linkâ€™s school. It sounds like heâ€™ll act as an authority figure and Skyloft historian.” Correct me if Iâ€™m wrong, dear readers, but isnâ€™t this the first time since The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past that weâ€™ve seen Zeldaâ€™s father in a game? Very cool indeed.
So whoâ€™s excited for some Zelda goodness? Are you worried about Ganon being MIA this time around?
