If the game doesn't start with fast travel, it's bound to show up later. Even The Legend of Zelda: Ocean of Fucking Nothing had fast travel.
It probably shows up later - warping is a Zelda staple - but they lampshade the lack of initial shortcuts right in the video:Miyamoto: So how far away is our destination from here?
Aonuma: Well, it'll still take about four or five more minutes I suppose.
Miyamoto: Four or five minutes more...
Why they would want to call attention to that is a mystery. Maybe they're overcompensating for the poor exploration options in Skyward Sword.
I thought that was really weird too. Was getting ready for them to show off their fast-travel alternative, then... nope.
