Gaymer Alert: Zelda Gets Release Date

By: Jase Peeples

It looks like the highly anticipated game The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for the Nintendo Wii will be served up with a side of cranberry sauce and stuffing.

IGN reports that the latest entry of the fan-favorite franchise will be released on November 20, 2011 in North America and November 18, 2011 in Europe. Not only will this give gaymers another reason to look forward to Thanksgiving, it’s also a great way for Nintendo to celebrate the 25thanniversary of the original Legend of Zelda.

Skyward Sword has been described by Nintendo as "a massive, multilayered world that takes players from dark dungeons to a diverse overworld to cloud cities in the sky, requiring a combination of puzzle-solving and swordplay to unlock all of its secrets. Link soars through the air on the wings of a majestic bird while exploring the game's sky area, providing players with unprecedented freedom of movement as they progress on their adventure. The quest lays the foundation for the events in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, which is frequently cited as one of the greatest video games of all time."

We’re waiting on pins and needles for this one.
