The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword releases Nov 20

Nintendo of America has announced that The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will finally launch on November 20. Took ’em long enough, right? 

“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,” says Nintendo. “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.”

This is one of the few reasons I have to turn on my Wii this year, so I’ll definitely be all about it. Who else is picking it up?
