The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD

Overworld

The Sky functions as the overworld map in Skyward Sword, where you travel to reach the three provinces on the surface.

Obviously, Link can’t fly, but fortunately he has a trusty Loftwing to act as his pair of wings.

For the most part, the Sky is peaceful, although some Octoroks can be found clinging to small, rocky islands.

Notable Locations

Skyloft

A village in the sky; home to Link and Zelda. You can play the Pumpkin Pull mini-game here, after completing Fledge’s Workout.

Bamboo Island

An island located north of Skyloft, near the entrance to the Eldin Province. Here, you can speak to Peater to play his Clean Cut mini-game.

Pumpkin Landing

(1 of 2) Pumpkin Landing is located towards the south-east.

A cozy retreat located in the south-east portion of the sky. It’s home to the Lumpy Pumpkin, an inn run by Pumm and his daughter, Kina.

By “accidentally” breaking the Lumpy Pumpkin’s chandelier, you can obtain two Heart Pieces–one from the chandelier itself and another for running errands to repair it.

Fun Fun Island

A colorful man-made island situated in the south-western sky. You can play Dodoh’s High Dive here, once you’ve recovered the Missing Party Wheel.

Beedle’s Island

Beedle’s residence, located in the north-eastern sky. During the night, you’ll find Beedle here (since you can’t fly during the night, you need to hitch a ride in his ship).

Later on, you can come here to help find Beedle’s Missing Beetle.

Thunderhead

A massive cloud located in the north-western sky that cannot be penetrated by normal means. However, after activating the Light Tower in Skyloft, a passageway will appear towards the south-east.

Treasure
