The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword Takes Flight In November

It would have been a blue Christmas without a new Zelda title under our Christmas Wii, but Nintendo comes through in the nick of the time, announcing a November 20 release date for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

The largest Zelda adventure yet and the first designed solely for the Wii (Link's Crossbow Training never counted as anything), Skyward Sword is likely Link's last big hurrah on the Wii before Nintendo slaps a U at the end of it and makes it more powerful and expensive.

"The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is the biggest game in the series yet," said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "We've just scratched the surface of this massive experience, and we look forward to sharing additional details with fans as we approach the Nov. 20 launch."

Additional details are nice. Knowing when to schedule a week off from work is even nicer.

    Scott M - "The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is the biggest game in the series yet,” - That is the video game equivelent of "there will be no carbon tax under the government i lead".
    We've heard that before Nintendo. Enough with the lies. I'm not going to be conned again into forking over $100 to play what has essentially been the same game over for the last 15 years.

      FYI: I would still trust Nintendo over Julia Gillard any day.

      that quote has nothing to do with other zelda games, just that its huge....:/

      Also, is that an Australian release date?

      Nintendo never lie! Unlike our PM obviously.

        Your kidding right? I mean about Nintendo, I don't give a crap about politics.

      I won't be forking out $100 either.

      It'll be more like $60, from ozgameshop

    looking forward to dusting off my wii to play this
    everyone else has an unwarranted hipster attitude for no reason... go back to your cod vs bf discussions

    'bigger' is a word that can mean a lot of things...

    Here's hoping this 'bigger' is a very good thing...

    Zelda. Don't fail me now.

    I've got faith in Zelda. There hasn't been a game I didn't like, so of course I'm looking forward to this one. Here's hoping it really is the best one yet.

    Zelda games have rarely ever failed me.. I know ill get bitch slapped, by my most hated of Zeldas are still the 64 titles..

    Anyways, im pumped! Simply can not wait for this game.

      The only thing that has failed me is being forced to use the motion controls.

      give me a b-button slash fest zelda any day.

    how can u hate the nintendo 64 zeldas! they were the best titles in the series! i hate using the wii remote too. pressing the buttons is just so much easier

    The Australian release date is actually December 31st.
    Disappointing, I know. :(

      WHOA, WHOA, WHOA!!!

      Where did you hear that? Europe is getting it November so I assume we were at about that same time.

      I need to know your source D:

      I am seriously dying... :'(



    The Australian release date cant be december 31st because thats a saturday.I think it will be around 22-24 of November that we aussies get it.I hope anyway.

    i really didnt like this game compared to other zelda games, the textures were way too pixelated and looked like crap, the logs in the game looked like a turd, domo domo doll or some cut off tail,

    hell windwaker was about 10 times better than this game, definitely not worth the time.
