Getting a lot of emails and questions about this game, probably due to doing the Zelda Twilight Princess Walkthrough last time a big Zelda was released. The control in Skyward Sword can be irritating at times, but you learn the nuances in time like anything else.
Zelda Answers to Frequently Asked Questions
Question 1: “In Zelda Twilight Princess we were still able to use the Wii Classic Controller. Can we still use the Wii Classic Controller with Zelda Skyward Sword?”
No, only the Wii nunchuk may be used in Zelda Skyward Sword. Zelda and Nintendo have taken the plunge with the <strong>Wii MotionPlus accessory</strong>, with the idea to create the most realistic / innovative movement yet for Link.
Question 2: “How to unlock Hero Mode in Zelda Skyward Sword? Can Hero Mode be unlocked before completing the game?”
Only way to unlock Hero Mode in Skyward Sword is to complete the main game once.
Zelda Skyward Sword Hero mode is quite difficult. Damage to your hearts is 2x what it normally is, and you will not come across hearts or heart feathers unless you have a heart medal with you. However, you do get to keep all the insects and treasures that you have found from the previous game. Maybe the best thing is that you start off with a full-power Skyward Strike attack.
Question 3: “How do I unlock the classic Hylian Shield?”
First, you must be in Hero Mode (see above). Then, at Lanayru Gorge, you must defeat 8 bosses in a row. Your reward is this badass shield.
Question 4: “Stuck at the shooting eye in the first temple”
Instead of shooting at it, move your blade in a circle. The eye will get dizzy and die.
Question 5: “Do I have to play the older Zelda’s to know the storyline with Zelda Skyward Sword”?
No, I wouldn’t say so. Story has never been a primary factor in Zelda games, especially the really early games. However, Zelda Ocarina of Time or Zelda Twilight Princess would be good lessons, as TP takes some things from Ocarina of Time.
