Share And Comment

Nintendo dropped by and provided a whole bunch of Zelda awesome. To help celebrate Nintendo’s 25th anniversary of the Legend of Zelda series, Nintendo is planning to drop all kinds of new Zelda experiences and make Wii owners dust off their controllers. For this go around, we will focus on the up and coming Skyward Sword that is expected to drop November 20th, 2011 for North American gamers. This time around Nintendo promises a new experience and touts that Skyward Sword has been a, “ground up” build on the Wii console. “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.”

Nintendo additionally promises that Skyward Sword will include a massive, multilayered world that takes players from the depths of dark dungeons to a high and mighty cloud city in the sky, (..sadly they could not confirm whether Lando was the governor, but I am holding out hope..) Like most Zelda’s in the Wii arsenal the majority of gameplay will center on a combination of puzzle-solving and swordplay to help Link master his realm. However, it is also rumored that players will be welcomed with unprecedented freedom of movement as they progress through the game. To this end, the quest that faces Link in Skyward Sword lays the foundation for the events in that player’s experience in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. (Yup, prequel…hopefully this doesn’t follow the fate of other prequels we are aware of..you know..ones where Lando wasn’t a character..sheesh..) Either way, it looks like an interesting new chapter for Link, check out the Trailer for yourself below:

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is now available for pre-order at most of your favorite game shops in North America. (..if you live outside of North America..well..yeah..sorry..) Otherwise, November 20th, 2011 is the drop date where you can continue your Link guided tour of nearly 25 years of Zelda greatness.

Oh, you wanted screens too?  Lucky for you, ZKG has you covered:

I started gaming when it was nothing more than green screens and clunky keyboards. Today, I play everything and anything that provides for a gaming experience. Good, bad, indifferent, and some times even ugly. I'm here to tell you whats up.
