A Look at Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword’s First Dungeon and Dowsing Mechanic

Link’s search for Zelda leads him to Skyview Temple, the very first dungeon players will face in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. The video above shows off some of the dangers and puzzles that await in Link’s opening quest.

On his way to Skyview Temple, Link must first take a stroll through Faron Woods, where he’ll use the game’s new Dowsing feature, a mechanic that turns his sword into a radar of sorts, guiding him forward in his quest. See how Dowsing works in the second video. Then enjoy some new screenshots after that.
