Zelda: Skyward Sword Gets Release Date and a Stunning Special Edition.

Special Edition of Skyward Sword is special.When a new Zelda game releases, it’s always a reason to celebrate; for the upcoming release of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Nintendo has announced a special edition and initial print bonus.

Based off of history, Nintendo typically makes the first print run of a Zelda game special by releasing a gold cartridge format. Since modern console games do not use cartridges, the next best thing would be a golden controller. The golden Wiimote comes with Wii MotionPlus built inside. This set is for true collectors only, and will more than likely have a limited run.

In addition to this special edition, Nintendo also announced that a CD combining tracks from their Zelda 25th anniversary live concert will be included with the initial print run of both versions. The U.S. pricing for the special edition is listed at $69.99. While the official release date is currently set to November 20th, the special edition has not been announced for a specific region yet. It’s safe to say that these details will be worked out in the coming months, and that the rest of the world will receive the same treatment. Stay tuned and check out your local game store to pre-order this golden treasure.
