Zelda: Skyward Sword is like a school drama

0

Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma has revealed some plot details for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, indicating that the game has something of a school drama feel to it. Link and Zelda start this game not as an adventurer and princess, but classmates in a boarding school.

"This game’s plot is something like a school drama, you could say," he revealed. "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."

You know what? I actually like this idea. It's pretty different, and if they have a whole school and town to explore, a'la Rockstar's Bully, I think that could be rather fun. Okay, it's got a bit of a Harry Potter vibe, but I can swallow that. I'm imagining Ganondorf as an evil school football coach, and it's brilliant.
