In our most recent preview of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Casey told us a bit about the new gameplay mechanic called dowsing. It basically acts as a magical compass, allowing you to easily find certain points of interest as your sword points you in the right direction. You can check it out in the video above where Link uses his new ability to terrorize a poor little creature in the forest.
We've also got a new trailer that shows you the finer points of the same temple that Casey was able to get hands-on time with. You'll see Link take on one of the new Skulltulas, use the new beetle item, battle with a Stalfos Warrior and finally with Demon Lord Ghirahim himself. Yeah, it sure is a good year to be a Legend of Zelda fan.
