Things will be a little different this time around in the latest Legend of Zelda game. Eiji Aonuma, series producer of Zelda had a bit of a talk with 1UP and he had a bit of information to reveal about Link and Zelda. Apparently The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword may be a bit like a school drama because the two of them are classmates in a boarding school.
Eiji Aonuma said:
“This game’s plot is something like a school drama, you could say. The flying sequence at the E3 demo is Link competing against his classmates. One of them looks kind of a like a bad guy, as you saw, and he shows up in other ways in the game too, since he has a major thing for Zelda.
Like with Majora, there are a lot of game events involving the townspeople that get intertwined with the main story. Link, Zelda and their other friends all go to the same boarding school, and you’ve got teachers and a principal as well. It’s a bit of a different setting from previous Zeldas.”
This certainly sounds like a good idea. Sure it may be a major step up from the usual Legend of Zelda storyline but change is certainly a good thing. I can’t wait to see more of Skyward Sword’s storyline now, especially since before I wrote it off as simply another storyline clone.
