Nintendo of Europe has put out new information about Skyward Sword in the form of a press release. In this press release, they talk about some of the new features to Zelda Skyward Sword. This of course includes the addition of the energy meter. However the most interesting bit of information is in regards to the Faron Woods and Skyview Temple.
We had previously heard that the “forest temple” would again be the first area that Link explores and this further confirmed that. The Faron Woods is an area that has never been explored by the people of Skyloft so this is a brand new experience for Link.
While in the Faron Woods, Link encounters a strange race of creatures known as the Kikwi. The Kikwi are sort of like a plant and animal hybrid that resembles a round fuzzy penguin.
