Also, the Deathly Hallows are made of people. You're welcome.

We'd never spoil anything like this for you.

If any of you are like me, you’re hoping that October and early November to pass extremely quickly because, well, Skyward Sword is coming out and you’re eager to play!  But if you’re really like me, you’re also hoping that they’ll pass quickly so that, in these critical weeks before the game comes out, you’re deeply contemplating whether or not to become a complete Internet hermit because of all of the accidental video leaks, bonus trailers, and… eventually… actual discussion about every last fine detail in the game.  Maybe you won’t be able to get the game on launch day?  Maybe you’re asking for the game for Christmas and won’t get it when everyone else does?  Maybe you’re going to be on vacation when the game hits shelves?  The last thing we want you to see when climbing on the Internet is that Ganondorf’s uncle-mother is the super ultra final hyperboss and that his final form will be a duel to the death in an underwater basket-waving competition.

Perhaps unfortunately for people like you, Zelda Universe has to cover every last morsel of news for those of you who are more… hmm, what’s the word for this… spoilerly enthusiastic.  But what we can do is to give you this solemn promise:

Every news topic or article that discusses Skyward Sword spoilers will be clearly marked, and you shall not be spoiled by visiting Zelda Universe’s main page.

Now obviously, if you click on an article that’s clearly marked [Spoilers!] and read all the juicy goodness underneath the story’s cut, well, then our promise is null and void.  But we’ll do our best to let you keep checking Zelda Universe and being a part of our community!

We also resolve that we will mark every spoiler up through January 31st, 2012.  So even if you’re getting the game late, you’ll still have an opportunity to work your way through the game before the spoilers under the bed come out to attack you while you sleep.

    This is really thoughtful of you guys. I live in south america, and though I will definitely order if the day it's release, it'll probably only arrive in the mail a month after. I am NOT looking foward to avoiding spoilers every day.

    *though I will definitely order it the day it's released

    In all honesty, deuling Ganondorf''s Grandma in an underwater basket weaveing competition would be most epic.

    • GorCoronSumo

      Dueling Ganon's grandma in an underwater basket weaving competition IS the final boss.

    • Banooru

      Basket Weaving Semi-finals:

      Link v. Betty
      Ganon v. His Uncle-Mother

  • SpiritOf Belief

    Wow, thanks, guys. I'm the kind of person that would probably read a spoiler without meaning to… I've done that before with other games and totally ruined it for myself. It's nice to know that I won't accidentally do that again. Thanks. 🙂

  • That's good..
    But now I have to stop myself from going past where it says Spoilers…

  • TheMaverickk

    This is why I purchased the game in full for myself.

    I contemplated waiting for this game for Christmas, and give my parents something to pick up for myself, but I can't wait for this game, and I don't want to risk it getting spoiled for me at some point.

    I waited until Christmas to play Twilight Princess and that wasn't too bad, I didn't have anything in the game spoiled. Sadly it didn't have much in the game that was shocking. Skyward Sword on the other hand seems ripe with so many new elements and things going on that I can't take that risk.

    Or for that matter so many things I want to be part of immediately that I can't wait.

  • Dimitris

    Snape…kill…..Dumbledore???O_o? Why ZeldaUniverse!!..WHY??!?!?!?T_T

    • Jimmy

      That "spoiler" has been around since 2005 in a series that's long over. Not sure if serious.

      • Guest

        you are a retard

        • Soulless Creature

          But still it was a spoiler.

      • QueenxLink

        He was joking. I'm pretty sure he knew Snape killed Dumbledore… -.- no need to be rude to him.

  • ss4evah

    yeahhhhhh! thank you zelda universe!

  • Jarek Matthew Jones

    I kinda had to stop watching videos for teh same reason.
    HEY ZU!!! You're "Contact Us" page just hangs on 'One Moment Please…' and never sends the contact. I'm trying to contact you!!! Alot!!! Please fix this.


    • themisssinglink

      Cody is hot on the heels of that one. He's currently working on the Email replies. Hopefully that should get resolved sooner than later.

  • ChainofTermina

    well that was an……..interesting choice of images……..

  • Zeldahero11


    SS FTW

  • Dueling Ganon's uncle-mother in an underwater basket-weaving contest would be the most fitting final battle I can think of for Skyward Sword.


    • Keimori

      The Legend of Zelda: Wrath of Granydorf.

      • GorCoronSumo

        Legend of Zelda: The Dentures of Evil


      Crazy, right?

      • Soulless Creature

        The Ledgend of Zelda: An even older Evil
        Left 🙂

        • GorCoronSumo

          The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Basket


  • Weevil

    ha! soo glad i did not see that before i read half-blood prince! and thank you for the spoiler warnings because a spoiler about zelda would be way worse then a spoiler about harry potter.

  • FL767


  • SageOfNonconformity

    So basically, "until December 31, 2012" means "forever", because that part of the timeline is after the world ends… Unless… The Hero Appears To Prevent The End Of The World! =D

  • Acostar62

    Thank You very much ZU i really appreciate it

  • Viscen

    This is awesome. Everyone trying to avoid spoilers: Join my Social Group, the "Abstinence for Skyward Sword" Movement. 😀

  • Bryan

    You read my mind ZU. I am not a fan of spoilers and have appreciated the warnings thus far. I want to be surprised as much as possible when I play the game. That's a huge part of it for me. I saw a couple trailers and already regret that although it really didn't spoil much at all. Oh and I don't have anything against people that want every detail they can get before the game comes out! To each his own!

  • Bob


  • Craig

    I'm sorry but why? If people want to come to this site they have to expect the latest news and spoilers… unless they're really dumb. I'm sorry but yes, you are dumb if you don't realize that. I'm sorry for being harsh but someone needs to be. This is stupid.

    • Link-182

      Maybe people want to read about Zelda news not pertaining to SS or just basic details such as release dates, progression and general non spoiler opinions thus far. Not everything on this site has to be about spoilers to this particular game. What if they announced a 3DS Zelda and we can't know because we don't want huge plot details about SS?

  • Mush

    LOL still haven't finished Harry Potter. It was inevitable, though. XDDD

  • JCLee

    People who are reading Harry Potter that have not reached that point yet are not going to be very happy with ZU's homepage right now.

  • Jimmy

    ^People who havent watched Star Wars yet are going to be unhappy to learn that Darth Vader is Luke's father too, but spoiler warnings only last so long (in the case of Skyward Sword about 3 months), and the Harry Potter "spoiler" has been out and a popular meme for well over 6 years.

    Also liked that Penny Arcade comic about old spoilers

    • JCLee

      Yeah that is absolutely true. To make a Zelda reference for example, Sheik's identity is commonplace fact around here and usually isn't bolded with spoilers, so yeah.

  • TrustMe101

    Thank you so much for this! I hate spoilers!

  • Person

    Oh my gosh have you guys not seen the alt text? hover the mouse over the picture.

  • jau682

    thank you so much 😀


    Thanks Zelda Universe! Nice job!

  • thank you 😀

  • Jean D'Eau

    I thought the final boss would be Ganondorf's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate.
    Spoilers… my guilty pleasure.

  • BattleFranky37

    Lemme see that… Snape… kills… Dumbledore…?
