Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Walkthrough

Table of Contents

The Sealed Grounds

  1. Steer your Wingloft in the direction of the large beam of light cutting through the clouds outside the city, then continue your approach until a cut scene activates. Afterwards, fly forward into the portal and dive down towards the hole in the clouds to dismount your Wingloft in mid-air.
  2. After another cut scene in which you touch down on the surface level, follow the instructions to navigate the map controls and save your game at the nearby statue. Turn around from the statue and follow the path leading out to the right, then lock onto the plant enemy that emerges and take him out with a few sword strikes.
  3. Continue forward down the path and eliminate the next three plant enemies you encounter along the way, then drop over the ledge ahead to activate a cut scene. Afterwards, collect the hearts against the wall to the right before dropping into enormous pit and using the sail to break your fall.
  4. When you reach the bottom of the pit, approach the stone statue at the center of a symbol painted on the ground to activate a cut scene. Afterwards, unsheathe your sword and hold it straight up above your ahead so that it absorbs the light energy.
  5. Target the stone statue, then use the sword to strike it with a blast of light energy and activate a cut scene. Choose the “Please!”response option to learn about Dowsing, then use the ability to search for Zelda’s location.
  6. Wave the tip of your sword in a circle around you until the controller vibrates and the pulsating beeps sound off at an accelerated rate over a particular spot. This is the direction you must travel in next.
  7. Approach the nearest geyser of steam shooting out of the ground and walk over it, then open your Windsail to rise into the air and land on the ledge above.
  8. Repeat the previous tactic to reach the next ledge above and use your Dowsing ability to re-check the location of Zelda’s aura, then continue towards it until you return to the area you first jumped from to enter the massive pit.
  9. Approach the door in the stone wall between the two torches so that the symbol magically disappears from it, then enter the Sealed Temple to complete this part of the game.

Just wated you to know that I play on grandsons games at times. I loved ALL the videos of Lengend of Zelda Sklyward Sword!

Love the way you also improvise the actions and characters.
Make it sound real:)

Thought I would just say it all here instead of comenting on each individual video.

Continue the great work, this helps quite a bit in knowing what to do and how to do it, in this game. I would have been lost without these videos. Visualizations are great.

I was up to getting the whip and discovered there are no more videos. Sure am hoping you will continue them. Feel like I am having a withdrawel moment here! LOL

This was a grwat idea for you to do this. Best walkthrough ever!

I just wanted to give kudos to Mitchell for the great job with the Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword videos. They are not only easy to follow but also entertaining. Makes you feel like you are playing along with him.
I am 50 yrs old and play this with my 9 yr old grandson.
Great job Mitchell!

Barbara – if you look around the edge of the screen, you can see a set of arrows that point towards where the bird with the statue is, if you lose track of it. One arrow means that the bird is close, but off screen. Two arrows means it is far away, but off screen. Move Link toward the direction the arrows are pointing, and you’ll see the yellow bird icon show up. From there, climb higher than the yellow bird to be able to dive down onto it and gather speed. Don’t use your boosts (A-button) until you get closer to the yellow bird. Good luck!

I recently came back to the game, skyward sword cause I never finished it.
Unfortunately, I am stuck in the sky keep. I got lost with those puzzle rooms. I did good at first following you, but then it seems like you may have skipped a part cause I could not find the next puzzle you did, only the one after.
I really love the way you explain things and otherwise you have made it so easy to follow. I am hoping you will be able to fill in the gap if you have time. I probably have to start over. I need the room with the lava for the last tri force. But the puzzles seem all mixed up and I end up like a circle over and over.
You are great at this, keep up the good job! :)
