The long awaited upcoming Zelda game, Skyward Sword, has finally had its release date announced for Australia! The magic day will be November 24, 2011!

As usual, Australian gamers will have to wait a bit longer to get this game than other regions. November 18th is Europe’s scheduled release date, with November 20th being America’s, and finally Japan’s being only one day beforehand on November 23rd.

Alongside the standard edition of the game, a special edition will also be released, containing a gold Wii Remote Plus and a copy of the Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony CD in addition to the game itself – just as it is in other regions.

While there has been no official price released, EB games is setting the preorder price at $118.00.

    That's pretty steep. Hopefully my local game store with which I have pre-ordered the game will be able to get the special edition, as I requested. They give me a 10% discount.

    Also considering painting a nun-chuk gold to fit with the Wiimote.

  • avert_from_the_norm

    I hope that 118$ is only for australia! I heard it was 70 in the us.

    • Keimori

      It is, the price hike is most likely due to the cost of import ans taxation of some sort.
