Zelda: Skyward Sword Release Date Announced

Nintendo has announced that, as of August 17, the release date for  The Legend of Zelda™: Skyward Sword will be November 20th. Unlike The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, this new Zelda adventure is built specifically for the Nintendo Wii.

The game will feature Wiimotion Plus capability so that when you swing your hand Link will swing his sword in the same fashion. The typically-massive Zelda world will sprawl various enviroments, including dungeons and cloud cities in the sky.

“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.”

Just in time for the holidays, Wii owners get their chance at a new Zelda incarnation. Are you looking forward to the new Zelda? Let us know in the comments below.
