The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword trailer surfaces

The trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword has finally hit the wire after the game’s reveal at the Nintendo E3 press conference earlier today.

The trailer features much of the gameplay demoed by the legendary Shigeru Miyamoto during the announcement, including the Wii Remote/Sword, Nunchuk/Shield control system and that awesome remote-control-flying-beetle-contraption… thing.

The trailer also gives us a closer look at the graphics (screenshots here), making it very clear that the game is the graphical descendant of Windwaker and Twilight Princess; the game takes the more adulty Link and gives him a little cel-shaded charm.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is due for release in 2011.
