Nintendo continues the twenty-fifth anniversary of The Legend of Zelda with the announcement of The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword special edition bundle. The bundle will include a golden Wii Remote with Wii Motion Plus built in. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is set to release on November 20th, 2011.

The bundle’s price point is set at $69.99, while the normal edition of Skyward Sword is set at $49.99 (although it will not be coming with the golden Wii Remote). As an additional twenty-fifth anniversary treat, all copies of the first run of Skyward Sword, whether limited or normal editions, will receive a CD soundtrack with select orchestral arrangements from The Legend of Zelda twenty-fifth anniversary symphony orchestra. These tracks will include pieces spanning the entire history of The Legend of Zelda franchise.

Nintendo also announced information regarding Professor Layton and the Last Specter, and Tetris: Axis. Professor Layton and the Last Specter is set three years before the first Professor Layton game, Professor Layton and the Curious Village. The fourth installment of the Professor Layton series will have more puzzles than any of the games other to date. Tetris: Axis lets players use the 3D feature of the Nintendo 3DS to jump right into the action of the game. Some of the new features in Tetris: Axis will include twenty game modes, and up to eight players can compete in wireless battles; even if only one person owns the Tetris: Axis game card. Other games in Nintendo’s autumn line up include Pokemon Rumble Blast, Super Mario 3D Land, and Mario Kart 7 all of which will be released between October 2011 and December 2011.


  1. Welp, looks like I’ll be buying the limited edition bundle of Skyward Sword.

  2. Sounds like Nintendo should have launched their 3DS in November.

  3. to bad there isnt a way to get it for less money. Although its cheap to get the bundle then to get the normal edition and a wii motion plus add-on, just something to think on
