    In the midst of Gamescom, Nintendo's American and European departments have revealed the release date to the long-awaited The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Scott Moffitt, the Nintendo of America Executive VP of Sales & Marketing, was quoted today stating that the game will launch in North America on November 20th, 2011. "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."

    European fans will be delighted to know that they will be receiving the game two days prior, on November 18th, 2011, as revealed in the official autumn release list from Nintendo of Europe. There has not been an official reveal of the release date in Japan, though presumably this will be announced at this year's Tokyo Game Show taking place in mid-September. Gamers in Australia also have no details on their release date. It can however be noted that Eiji Aonuma, renowned Zelda developer, stated previously that Nintendo wishes to release The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword almost simultaneously across the globe.[/p]

    Slightly sooner than I thought... only problem is that Super Mario Land 3D comes out a week before it. I don't want to be playing two games at one time, so either I'll have to beat Super Mario Land 3D in a week, or play it after Skyward Sword.

    Nice, maybe I'll invest in a Wii and this game again. Now that I'm making money I can actually afford things.

    I also hope this game is harder than Twilight Princess. I love that they changed the art style, they got that down pat, but the difficulty and horrible temples is what sucked for Twilight Princess. Please be better [​IMG]

    WOT ?
    TP took me about 70 hour to finish, taking it easy and doing as much exploring and side quests as I could.
    I don't understand why people rush trough games skipping all the cut scenes without even attempt to collect anything or at least pay attention to the artwork and side quests.
    Anyway, SW should keep me busy trough December this year [​IMG]

    Good to hear that is coming out this year but that is not a good month for me I already have my game picked out for then, but hopefully I can finish Skyrim by January next year to pick this up and play it if not I shall wait to buy it with my Wii U.

    Meh...I've been comtemplating selling my Wii, seeing as it's pretty much dead. But I don't know if I want to sell it before playing Skyward Sword.

    Skyward Sword looked good at first, but the details that have been revealed make it sound awful IMO. The art style is also something I don't like. It's like an ugly watercolor painting type thing. If they would've stuck to simply Wind Waker's style, or TP's style (Since it seems to be like those two combined), it would've been so much better, but, they didn't.

    I didn't like the art style either. But maybe we'll get used to it once we start playing.

    I like the art style, it goes very well with the character design, which I like even more.

    I was expecting a December release. I love the art style. I hope this game has better controls than TP. The TP controls for me are kinda loose.

    Wat? It will be better. No questions.
