Opening Video For Skyward Sword Leaked (Video)

Internet, have you no respect for secrets?

Betraying my criticism in record time, the opening cinematic for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword has been leaked. Most of the sites I visited had "spoiler alert" scrawled across the top of their respective articles - evidently the video gives away some of the plot - though the cinematic really isn't a deep introduction, per se; rather, it's an interesting visual display (the art is rather striking), featuring some of Skyward Sword's lovely orchestral score. Then again, I'm probably not the best to judge what constituted a "spoiler," when it comes to the series. I like to give the explanation that "everything after the first game was crap," as though The Legend of Zelda is some kind of obscure indie rock band (physical media is so mainstream anyway, and digital downloads are - well, they're too digital), but the rather dull truth is that I have a terribly limited experience with Zelda. The first was indeed glorious, and I'm utterly stuck on the The Adventure of Link. Say what you will about modern games, but I've never been hot on the "now spend an hour and a half traversing through every previous dungeon, in search on that one crucial item you missed" mechanic.

Regardless, the scant bit of dialogue is in Japanese, so we Anglophones have little to fear, and the rest of the storytelling is conveyed through visuals and mood. So if you're not of the type that prefers to go into a game completely clean - avoiding anything but the most brief of trailers - check out the audiovisual loveliness that is the opening to Skyward Sword!

Chaz: No, that was a joke (i hear a similar line from pretentious music geeks all the time).

SuperSwede: Ah, I see. Admittedly, I'm bad at times when it comes to picking up on humor in online posts. :)
