Zelda: Skyward Sword getting item upgrade system


The next addition to the Legend of Zelda series is delving deeper into RPG territory with word that it will feature a full-on upgrade system for items and weapons. Until now, Link would just get more and more cool gadgets with occasional enhancements, but now he'll be able to strengthen his whole arsenal with resources found in the game.

"What we’ve done with the game this time that I think is a little different is we’ve built an entire upgrade system into the game," said Nintendo's Bill Trinen. "Link has his traditional shield, but you actually get a lot of different shields in the game. You start off with a very basic one, and as you fight enemies you’re recover these treasure or artifacts that you then use as resources to upgrade your items.

"You can do that with the shield, you can do that with the beetle, and some of the other items that you have. You’ll be combining your collection of rupees and your collection of these resources and improve the items you have."

The beetle alone was making me excited for Skyward Sword, but a beetle I can upgrade? That's just shot into the top five of my 2011 "DO WANT" list.
