The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Soars Towards a November 20 Launch


Any lingering fears you may have had about The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword going the way of Twilight Princess, getting delayed at the last minute to shift into a simultaneous launch on Wii and the upcoming Wii U, can officially be put to bed.

Today, Nintendo announced that Skyward Sword will launch at North American retail on November 20th, and it promises to be the grandest Zelda adventure to date:

“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.”

Here’s the breathtaking trailer from last month’s Comic-Con showcase, in case you missed it.
