New The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword website launches today


31st October 2011 – If you're a Zelda fan, chances are you already marked 18 November in your diary as the day Link's grand adventure launches exclusively on Wii. But if that date still seems too far off, you'll hopefully be happy to hear that from today you can start your journey at the official The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword website and check the first Iwata Asks: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.


In addition to that, following last week’s unveiling of new information about the Eldin Volcano area of the game, today Link continues his epic quest and travels back to the Eldin Volcano as additional discoveries have uncovered new portions of the map. Newly-revealed game elements include the following:

  • Return to the Eldin Volcano and the Fire Sanctuary: Link travels back to this volcanic area to journey into the Fire Sanctuary, a dungeon that sits on top of the volcano’s summit.
  • New Items: In the Fire Sanctuary, Link receives yet another new item – the Mogma Mitts. Using these, he is able to access underground tunnels by digging through soft patches in the ground to explore the subterranean areas in this dungeon.
  • The Quest Continues: As Link continues on his quest to find and help Zelda, making his way through this treacherous area, a massive eruption from the volcano throws him off course.

  • More Fun in the Skies: When Link returns to Skyloft, he can look forward to a multitude of fun activities, including Pumpkin Pull, a challenging game of target shooting that involves flying pumpkins.


Nintendo will continue to provide fans with select details and information about the game prior to its 18th November launch across Europe.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will be available as a limited edition bundle, featuring a copy of the game, a CD featuring selected orchestral arrangements from the The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony performance and a rare gold-coloured Wii Remote Plus controller bearing the Hylian Crest. Pre-order* now to avoid disappointment and to secure your copy.
