When I first saw The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword at E3 2010, I have to admit I wasn’t impressed. The demo was obviously rushed out, the Wiimote was being unresponsive, and it took him like a dozen slingshot rocks to knock down one spider. But it has definitely shaped up nicely over the last year or so, and was looking better than ever at PAX. Now that the doubters had been satisfied to some extent, it only remained to set a date for availability. And we just got that.
The new game will be hitting the US on November 20th, just in time for the holidays. I get the feeling there will be a lot of Zeldas under trees this year. And what’s more, you’ll be able to buy it bundled with that fabulous golden Wiimote we saw teased at E3 this year for a mere $20 extra.
The bundle will sell for $70 and the plain version for $50. Why would you not get the bundle? Both versions, however, will come with a Zelda 25th Anniversary Concert CD.
If you’re still not sure about it, we’ll have a review of the game up as soon as they start sending those little buggers out.
