On the floating island of Skyloft, Link and Zelda prepare to take part in the Wing Ceremony, but a dark tornado pulls Zelda beneath the clouds to the forbidden "surface" realm. Link is guided by a fairy spirit named Fi to the Goddess Sword and must travel to the Surface to find Zelda and meet the destiny that awaits him.

Taking place before all the other Zelda games, Skyward Sword describes the origins of the Master Sword and the kingdom of Hyrule.

The game uses Wii Motion Plus technology for its swordplay, flying the Loftwing birds and using many of the items Link discovers on his quest.

Flute Boy's Tune

Screenshot Required

Before the final battle, you have to take on a hoard of Bokoblins at the Sealed Grounds. When they use their Monster Horns to call for reinforcements during this battle, they play an excerpt of the Flute Boy's song from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (this was the same excerpt Link would play after acquiring the Flute).
