Nintendo announces limited edition The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Bundle


2nd September 2011 - 2011 is the year of Zelda with Nintendo celebrating 25 years since the beginning of the critically-acclaimed franchise. The Legend of Zelda was first released on the Nintendo Entertainment System a quarter of a century ago this year, and to help celebrate this occasion Nintendo are releasing a limited edition pre-order bundle for the latest instalment in The Legend of Zelda franchise, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, coming to Europe on 18th November 2011.

Games in The Legend of Zelda series invite players to explore vast environments, solve puzzles and battle enemies in a fantasy world. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword continues this tradition, but transforms the experience by using the Wii Remote Plus controller to offer even more precise control.

A special limited edition bundle is available to fans who pre-order their software and features a copy of the game, a CD featuring selected orchestral arrangements of iconic music spanning the history of the franchise that will be performed as a part of the The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony performance, and a rare gold-coloured Wii Remote Plus controller bearing the Hylian Crest.

You’ll need to be quick off the mark, as this game and CD ‘special edition’ is only available while stocks last. 

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will let players guide Link on a multi-layered journey blending intense ground-based adventures with breathtaking exploration above the clouds as Link glides through the skies on the back of a majestic bird. For the first time in a Zelda game you can use Wii MotionPlus technology to precisely control flight and experience a distinctly unique combat system as you analyse enemy attack and defence moves, counteracting each assault with precise and intuitive movements of the sword. Fans who pre-order the limited edition bundle will be able to get their hands on the exclusive gold-coloured Wii Remote Plus included within the bundle and watch it faithfully replicate the angle of every sword slice. 

Wield the weapons of a hero with perfect precision and prepare for a new level of strategic swordplay as you embark on a truly epic and all-new Zelda adventure in The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword. Pre-order your limited edition bundle from GAME or Amazon before the game is released across Europe on 18th November 2011 and receive your special limited edition golden Wii Remote Plus bearing the Hylian Crest and music CD.
