Nintendo of America’s recent announcement of its new Skyward Sword bundle was great news for US Zelda fans, but due to Nintendo’s previous inconsistency in keeping offers the same between regions (such as their Europe-only new Wii or their Australia-only special edition of OoT 3D) many Zelda fans from other regions have been left in suspense.

Luckily, this particular bundle seems set to release across multiple regions, with EB Games Australia already updating their website with a page for the Skyward Sword limited edition. It has been priced at $118, which is far more expensive than the US version but not expensive enough to be unusual for this kind of offer in Australia.

European and Australian releases tend to correspond due to being part of the same PAL region, so it’s likely that Europe will receive this offer as well, but for now there’s no way to be completely sure. We will keep you up to date on this as it develops.

UPDATE: The bundle has now also been confirmed for the UK and Europe, thanks to Official Nintendo Magazine. It’s now a confirmed worldwide deal.

  • damn it, can't we get an bannar ad on the side? or ANYTHING besides the whole screen suddenly going white to give me an "important message". even just do what RottenTomatoes does and have the ad BEFORE you get to the web page, but stop interrupting me after I've already started reading an article!

    • Ad block plus on Firefox makes there NO ADS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • denre01

        Don't use adblock. ADS PAY FOR YOUR FREE CONTENT. you want ZU to stay alive? then dont use adblock.

        • I would very much like to experience the ads, so that ZU can make money, but the style of ads have now make me not want to come here at all, or at least less often, which has a much bigger impact on their ad revenue.

      for some reason I don't get those ones, I only get the small ones at the top.

  • Paffe

    Europe plz? Europe plz? Europe plz? Europe plz? I COMMAND YOU TO EUROPE!

  • Putoguiri

    I'm in europe, where can I preorder it?

  • Merq

    It has to come to Europe, it has to… because I need one. They wouldn't be that mean, right? It's a golden Wiimote..! Want. Want want want.

  • Wait it's not comfirmed to come to Europe yet?

    I was assuming it would've been, since it's such a special bundle or whatever.

    They better let us have it, I haven't got Plus, so I kinda want the bundle so that I do have it.

  • Euro-Link

    I really DO hope we get the same bundle (gold wiimote, 25th Anniversary Concert CD etc.) over here in Europe as they're getting in the States! I've been trying to check the websites for the two biggest chains of games stores in the UK; GameStation and GAME, but both are 'down for maintenance' at the moment!

  • Wait….No Gold Nunchuk?

  • Peter

    Now we just need that Zelda 3DS!

  • I hate that everything seems to be priced higher outside the States.

  • Soeroah

    $118 is still cheaper than buying the game and the Wiimote+ separately…but damn that's expensive. I hate the Australian game market.

    • Number 1 Zelda fan

      I am so sorry, I know Australia gets everything last, but why should they have to pay that much?

      My advice move out of Australia

  • cloverplayer


  • The game requires a nunchuck… Why wouldn't they include one in the bundle!?

    Now I'm going to have a shiny, golden Zelda Wiimote+ with a dirty, old, white nunchuck hanging off of it. STILL! It's beautiful. And I want that CD!
    And, maybe I'm blind, but I can't find on the EB website where it says what the preorder bundle actually contains?

  • It's been announced for Europe ^_^

  • What? WHAT? $118
    Well it does come with a Wii Remote Plus. Considering those are like $68, it's not too bad…Still buying it day 1.

  • I'm so relieved! I would've been heartbroken if I couldn't get that awesome bundle in the US. Oooo this is going to be so awesome! I can't wait!

  • xxx

    Well, that's pretty unfair. Eurpeans and Aussies have been getting exclusive stuff, so it would be only fair that America could get this one as an exclusive. Nothing against the rest of the world, it's just my frustration towards Nintendo for being so freaking unfair.

    • Rauru

      Er, the US often gets stuff long before us and better things from the stars catalogue etc, so how is that unfair exactly? And how would it be fair to deprive the rest of the world of such a good bundle? I say we should all get things as cool as this, no exclusives.

  • Coloniser

    I'm assuming that's $118 AUSTRALIAN dollars, right? In which case, it makes it similarly priced to the US version…

    • CodyDavies

      $118 Aus is like $125 US <_<

  • Jason

    Today, I have preordered myself two copies of this exclusive Limited Edition version of the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword with the Gold Nintendo Wii Remote and the Soundtrack CD. 🙂

  • Skyloftian

    I can’t find anywhere to pre-order it here in the UK… But I need it so bad! 🙁
