After a few delays, Nintendo of America announced today plans to release what is likely one of if not the most anticipated title from them, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword on November 20, 2011 in North America (November 18 for Europe) on the Nintendo Wii.
This adds another AAA title to the long list of releases in what can only be described as a jam packed and saturated November 2011.
Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing had this to say about the upcoming title: “The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is the biggest game in the series yet. 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.”
Of course, utilizing the Wii Motion Plus, “the game includes a massive, multilayered world that takes players from dark dungeons to a diverse overworld to cloud cities in the sky, requiring a combination of puzzle-solving and swordplay to unlock all of its secrets. Link soars through the air on the wings of a majestic bird while exploring the game’s sky area, providing players with unprecedented freedom of movement as they progress on their adventure. The quest lays the foundation for the events in The Legend of Zelda™: Ocarina of Time™, which is frequently cited as one of the greatest video games of all time.”
So all of you Zelda fans out there that have been waiting anxiously for this title, your time has finally come! Get your copy of Skyward Sword when it hits shelves this November.
