Fire Temples in Zelda games are like guns in Call of Duty - they just have to be in there, and the upcoming Skyward Sword is no different. Our very own Nikole Zivalich got the chance to go hands on with the game recently, and she closes her three part preview with her approach to the Fire Temple.
"Link headed back to the temple where he found Fi to see if the ruby adorned stone would have a similar affect. Sure enough, it did. A fiery orange beam of light shot through the sky. I'm no rocket scientist, but this was a pretty good indication that we were heading to a fire temple. Link and his Loftbird flew over the orange portal back to the land below. I pushed dive and Link fell, landing at the entrance of Eldin Volcano."
