Best Buy has a release date for the upcoming game, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword: September 25, 2011.
In case you somehow don’t know what Skyward Sword is, it is the next installment in the Zelda franchise taking place before the events of Ocarina of Time that was announced at E3 2010. It plans to feature 1:1 sword control with the help of WiiMotionPlus, which adds a little bit of interactivity to what seems to be an already amazing game. As seen in the most recent trailer, the swordplay seems to be a key element to defeating enemies, as you can only hurt them by swinging left, right, down, etc.
Now, we all know that when a place like GameStop says that they know the release date of a product, especially a Nintendo product, they might not always be right. And if it hasn’t been stated by Nintendo, it pretty much eliminates the chance of the store being correct.
But, this time, it seems to be quite realistic. Sundays and Tuesdays are the main days that Nintendo releases new games, and the 25th happens to be a Sunday. Also, this is very soon after E3, so they’ll probably show off the finished product there, and release it soon after. Overall, a very realistic date for release.
What do you guys think? Is Best Buy reliable when it comes to these type of things? Is this date realistic for a game release? Tell us your thoughts in the comments!
