New Skyward Sword gameplay video: http://www.gametrailers.com/video/nc-10-nintendo-wii/705395

Still demo footage, but you can see the lava boulder you roll on looks like... an eyeball? Also you can get a pretty good view of the ornate center-platform in the Fire Temple.

Here's a two-part, 20 minute playthrough of the SkyWard Sword E3 Demo:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOlmV1-a4fw&feature=related

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=57Ed_X4flM0&feature=related

I've noticed:

1. You can leap up vines repeatedly, definitely faster than climbing normally.
2. You can wall jump! (see 1:15 and 4:51 in part 1).
3. You can slash really quickly, faster than any other 3D Zelda so far for sure (see 6:33 in part 2).

PS: This guy has a very compelling theory about the story of the game as well as the mystery girl on the poster:

New GDC trailer for Skyward Sword: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k5HxKASXjeM&feature=feedu

Stuff I've noticed in it:
1. Main logo now has vines growing on it.
2. There's now a Hylian Shield icon at the top left as well as a meter right next to it.
3. Big Skulltula's (Twilight Princess style) have returned.
4. Peahats return (metallic looking with very small propellers).
5. New type of Beamos enemy shown (need to slice it's lower sections to shorten it, to presumably be able to attack it's eye).
6. The "master sword/great fairy girl is equipped to the D-pad (most likely a Navi/Midna-type button).
7. There's a new fat moblin with a large wood shield.
8. There's a Bamboo-chopping minigame.
9. New big rolling enemy (looks electric and metallic)
10. New enemy that's a monkey that breaths fire while hiding under a rock.
11. New 6-armed boss. Notice the strange dude that's sitting on top of it before fight starts (probably a main antogonist).
12. Lamp looking item is equipped in the 3rd scene.

Reviving due to the fact that E3 will be this week. Also, this...

Greetings ZU Staff,

I wanted to let you in on some info on Nintendoís press conference.  My classmate at a southern California university CSUF will be performing with his choir at E3.  Today is a rehearsal at the university.  Monday night is his dress rehearsal.  He has informed me that the music is for Skyward Sword.  Thatís all I have.  Enjoy the choir and E3.

Best wishes,

Alex Jaich

This is art because the music is classical music, and the graphics are done with a pen. The story is something about a woman. I could not understand much of this to be honest, which makes it even more likely to be an art.

At 4:40-4:45 in the vid he does a standard quick spin but then also does a veritcal quick spin. I noticed also that there is an 8 piece shaped pie magic meter (I'd assume it's a magic meter) that goes down when he does the quick spins, and it auto refills after time.

In one of the demo videos I heard the temple of time song playing in the background... Not sure if this actually means anything, but since the story is about the mastersword, it wouldn't surprise me if the temple of time had some roll in the game.

The temple of time song starts at about 3:56

That's because Link's shield changed as well. It's a rectangular shield with two bird-feet on it.

I find it odd how Ghirahim says he "will not murder you", which is both surprising and illogical. When synonyms for destroy are more often used. Murder is an illogical statement because Ghirahim is basically implying that he's not entitled to kill Link and that killing is wrong. They probably won't do it, but I hope "murder" gets changed to "kill" before the final release.

What may be more important other than the shield icon....

Is the positioning of the hearts right next to the shield icon. As is, they are too close to one another to allow for a second row of hearts to be shown like they would be traditionally shown.

The same could be said about the magic bar in OoT, MM and TWW, but that was obviously not the case.

After watching more videos of this, I'm feeling much more positive about this game than before.  Maybe it wont suck after all.

Old stuff I just discovered.

Also, I read a youtube comment stating that the shield meter stands for the durability of the shield. If you rely on it too much and take too many hits, it breaks.
