Zelda has not only an important place in video game history, but has been a central part of E3 since its beginning. Whether its Shigeru Miyamoto slashing away with a sword and shield or disappointing concept art, our green capped hero Link has been a presence at the yearly event for years. This year Nintendo treated fanboys with a glimpse at its brand new The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword due for release next year.

Returning to the stylized look vaguely reminiscent of Wind Waker, Link returns with a brand new quest. While very little details have been released on the story so far, Nintendo demonstrated a rather lengthy look at the gameplay. Although not the first Zelda game on the Wii, Skyward Sword pushes the Wii's motion technology farther then ever before. Utilizing the Wii Motion Plus gameplay system, the game exhibits fluid and swift moving combat. Also feature is archery similar to that featured in Wii Sports Resort.

Look below for glimpses at the games reveal at the Nintendo press conference, and the official gameplay trailer.
