Skyward Sword Limited Edition

Only a few days after announcing the release date, Nintendo has officially announced the Skyward Sword limited edition bundle!

Retailing at $69.99 USD (just $20 more than the game on its own), this limited edition bundle will include the golden Wii Remote Plus, shown off by Nintendo at E3 earlier this year. On top of that, any copy of Skyward Sword from the initial production, limited edition or standard, will include a CD featuring orchestrated tracks from a number of different Zelda games.

Hit the jump for more information, including an official PR email.

“REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Leaves won’t be the only things turning gold this fall as Nintendo prepares to launch an extraordinary lineup of games for its Wii™, Nintendo 3DS™ and Nintendo DS™ game systems. At a recent meeting of GameStop retail store managers from across the United States, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing Scott Moffitt revealed new details about upcoming releases for several fan-favorite franchises:

A special limited-edition The Legend of Zelda™: Skyward Sword bundle containing the game and a gold* Wii Remote™ Plus controller will be available when the game launches on Nov. 20.

Also for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, every copy in the initial production of the game will come packaged with a special music CD featuring orchestral arrangements of select songs that will be performed at The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony Concert.


“Nintendo has something for you this fall, no matter what type of gamer you are, no matter what Nintendo system you’re playing,” said Moffitt. “Whether you’re looking for a world-spanning epic like The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, the pick-up-and-play puzzle fun of Tetris: Axis or the mind-bending adventure of Professor Layton and the Last Specter, we’ve got you covered.”

The limited-edition gold controller bundle for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will be offered at a suggested retail price of $69.99. The game will also be sold separately at a suggested retail price of $49.99, though the gold controller will only be available as part of the special bundle. As an additional 25th anniversary treat for fans who purchase the game early, every copy in the initial production, whether sold by itself or as a part of the limited-edition bundle, will come with a free CD featuring select orchestral arrangements of iconic music spanning the history of the franchise which will be performed at The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony Concert performances in October 2011.

* Note that the gold controller will simply be gold in color and will not contain any actual precious metals.

** Multiplayer mode requires multiple Nintendo 3DS systems, each sold separately.”

The limited edition is currently available for preorder online at GameStop, but it’s fairly safe to assume that it will also be available to preorder in stores. Hopefully, Zelda fans all around the world will have their own limited editions confirmed soon.

Now that you’ve seen the Skyward Sword limited edition bundle, will you be preordering it, to make sure you get your hands on that beautiful golden Wii Remote? Don’t forget to leave your thoughts in the comments.

  • Now all we need is the Triforce Wii. 8)

    Though the boxart is the utmost epic thing we've seen of SS. I especially like the built-in Motion +. Only the game's release can be better.

  • mason

    hell yeah i'm getting the golden wii remote And orchestrated cd and skyward sword most defintly

  • Paffe

    I really hope this comes with preorders from Gamestop in Norway! (plz, plz)

  • Poe Princess Mara

    I love the box art! It's a lot more intricate than I thought it would be.

  • Kierra

    I am not buying until I see a "in-store pickup" option!

  • Me likey like like

  • ZeroC

    But we need a gold nunchuck also….

    :/ Anyone agree?

    • michael12268

      of course! it is just not the same without it

    • Number 1 Zelda fan

      I totally agree, they also need the triforce wii then it will be EPIC!

      • Silver-Lynx4

        that would be so awsome <(O.o)>

  • Keimori

    This Is the one of the most wonderfuly awesome Zelda bundles I've seen in so long,
    Now if you excuse me, I must go preorder this right now.

  • Merq

    Shiny, pretty… I must have that Wiimote. This bundle is coming to Europe too, right? It has to…

  • Kusanagi51312963

    Damn it! I just went out and bought a Wii Motion Plus and pre-ordered SS a few days ago, paying for the whole thing. Now this comes out looking awesome and I already have both.

    • Caleb

      …you can ask for your money back, I've done it. Although with the WiiMotionPlus, I don't know. But if the game hasn't come out yet (and it hasn't), then they'll give it all back to you.

  • KyleLink

    I LOVE THE BOX ART!!!! <3


    Great box art! I've been waiting for awhile for this bundle to be announced! GOTY 2011!

  • mason

    hell yeah i'm getting the golden wii remote And orchestrated cd and skyward sword most defintly i see in the box art a zora gem and a kokiri gem and phi and of course our hero link

    and I will be spending an extra $20 to get the limited edition..
    anyway a Wii Remote Plus is $40.

  • RurouniRinku

    So what am I supposed to do? I already ordered SS WAAAAAAAY long ago, but I want the gold Wii remote. Is there some kind of way to 'upgrade' my current order to the bundle?

    • cloverplayer

      you could try cancelling the order.

      • RurouniRinku

        thanks, but I did it already. I headed straight there right after school today and found out I could do that. btw, I originally preordered SS Jan. of LAST year, before it even had a title 😉

  • zman friman

    I pre-ordered myself 2 of these =)

  • zman friman

    Why aren't they including the nunchuk, too? it's gonna look lame with a black or white nunchuck =(

    • cloverplayer

      that might be why they left the buttons white, plus white and gold does make a good compo 🙂

  • TrustMe101

    "* Note that the gold controller will simply be gold in color and will not contain any actual precious metals."

    ^ XD. Anyways, I'm excited for this release! I usually don't buy limited edition stuff, but this looks too good to resist….

    • Keimori

      XD I had a laugh at that disclaimer too.

  • The Iron Giant

    I love how they have to clarify that the controller is not ACTUAL gold.

    But yeah, i want this.

  • Callin

    Considering the cost of a Wiimote+Wii Motion Plus, $20 is actually a pretty good deal.
    I'm in.

    • Callin

      I mean $20 for just the wiimote, the game being the other $50

  • Soeroah

    Dammit. I was rather hoping the Wiimote+ would be baseline.

    Suppose I'll have to upgrade my order. $100+ is still cheaper than buying the game and Wiimote+ separately.

  • cloverplayer

    This is what I have been waiting for to pre-order 😛 and I have 60 bucks already!

  • cloverplayer

    (also, if you happen to be first, it's not that hard to keep your mouth shut, unless you actually have something worthwhile to say)

    • cloverplayer

      I'm saying this so people can keep from getting 50 thumbs down lol I know we all (most) like making the first comment, but some people get very annoyed and start thumb spazms.

  • chancho

    all i have to worry about now is how i can get that extra 20 dollars

  • Zelda

    Goddess pearls on the cover?!?!?!?!?!??!?! I see some connection with Wind Waker!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • zachdavis19

    Anyone know where to preorder this?

    • Number 1 Zelda fan

      Gamestop, and you have to pay $70 unless you preordered it already

  • Exziron

    “**Multiplayer mode requires multiple Nintendo 3DS systems”

    can somebody explain this to me? Multiplayer for what? Skyward Sword??

    • Soeroah

      I believe the email was abridged for posting on this site, and it's referring to what I think is Four Swords on the 3DS eShop, which will be a free downloadable title at some point for the 3DS.

  • darkgerudo

    Looks like I'll be contacting Gamestop tomorrow and changing my pre-order to the limited edition. Also: save up another $38.

  • Ganonslayer

    I pre-ordered from Amazon not sure if I'll get the bundle.

  • Holy guacamole! I DOES WANT.

  • avert_from_the_norm


  • Lani

    It's a different SKU, Cancel your previous pre-order and move it over to the bunde.

  • link418

    awesome CANT WAIT!!!!!!!!!

  • Theres no way I'm missing out on this. Pre-ordered today, baba!

  • My precious! I must have this, even though I have no Wii. But it will be worth it for when I buy a Wii U! 😀

  • Bryan

    I am officially a nerd. I went today and preordered the package at a gamestop down the street from my house. The worker there said "How did you know about that????, It was just announced yesterday!!!!" I told him zeldauniverse had it. He didn't even know it was in the system yet, but after we looked, it was there! Not under the game search, but the bundle. Never been first in line for anything, but now I am thanks to zeldauniverse!

  • Nuudom

    Want it! but is it on europe too? please if someone finds an eruopean site for this, send link!!

  • ginger17

    I just jizzed in my pants.

  • UltimaHedgie

    That's worth it just to get the game and extra Wii remote. I'm gonna try getting it if I can.

  • Guil.

    This is the reason I have not yet preordered the game. Been waiting for the bundle.

  • Silver-Lynx4

    All that stuff is just like… >3< 😀 nWn *¬*

  • Sweetlie

    Pre-ordered 😉

  • Me and a couple friends are gonna go out to Gamestop tomorrow and preorder this. SO EXCITED!!!! :3 Especially after seeing some Sky Temple gameplay from E3 on YouTube.

  • Hey do you get this if you preordered the game cuz i just gotta say that would just be fantastic since i already preordered

  • My boyfriend and I preordered Skyward Sword MONTHS ago.. and now because of this we will be going in and upgrading to the Bundle Pack. Thank you for informing us about this awesome assortment of -to be- timeless Zelda collectables!
