Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword landing Nov. 18 in Europe, Nov. 20 in the US

Link’s watercolour-washed adventure finally has an official release date and wouldn’t you just know it, it’s in that oh-so-quiet run-up to Christmas. Magic.

Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will land in Europe on November 18 and in the US on November 20 exclusively for Wii.

The 15th core release in a franchise which has spanned 25 years is set prior to the events of Ocarina of Time and will tell the story of the creation of the Master Sword.

If you think it’s all looking a bit child-friendly, it’s worth checking out my recent hands-on impressions of the game. Even if I do say so myself.

Thanks, EG.
