Nintendo of America has announced via a press release that The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will launch in North America on Sunday, November 20th. Nintendo UK already announced earlier today that The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will be released across Europe Friday, November 18th.
Europe get it FIRST! YES! May buy it, though Zelda isn’t really my thing.
YES!!! Finally! …. Do…not… say…. the…. F…. word…
omg omg omg *hyperventilates*
In my opinion they should wait to release it sometime in Winter due to sales reasons.
But November is in winter. :$
On most UK calendars, Winter doesn’t officially start until December 21st. Personally, I think they should release the game in October, as that is the only month this year where Nintendo are not releasing any 1st party games.
well, technically, winter starts on December 21st. =P But I get what you mean.
Huh? If they waited until the end of December most people are already done with all there Christmas shopping and thanksgiving and black Friday are already over.
Can’t see too many good sales for this. Not because the game is bad or anything, just the date is not that good. There are so many games coming out in November. I would of held off to December. Wait a bit until the dust settings (and people get more money in their wallets) after the swarm that is early November.
Actually I like the set date now but i see where you’re coming from. I think the NoA release date is appropriate because it’s right before Thanksgiving. And you know what that means…..Black Friday. I can’t say anything on about Europe because I don’t live there. And, well in NoA that is, after the November holiday, it’s “holiday” season. That’s when everyone is going to be buying their presents and gifts. Plus if I had the choice between Sonic and Mario at the olympic games and Skyward Sword…….
It wouldn’t matter why day of the year they released this game: it would still blow sales out of the water. There is a MASSIVE number of gamers who have been waiting over four years to have this game in their hands… The “duraderos timing” of its remesar doesn’t males one bit of difference when it comes to a game of gnus caliber.
Uhm… Posted from an autocorrecting phone, I suppose? That last sentence wins!
It’s a Legend of Zelda game. It would sell well no matter when it was released.
I’m excited from all the things I’ve heard but I’ll miss twilight princess graphics. I hope they switch him back to being left handed, it doesn’t affect the game much. I played all of twilight princess as a lefty and had no problems.

I LIVE IN AUSTRALIA
Buy it from UK. It will be cheaper and will more then likely get here sooner then if you bought it here.
I thought that Nintendo was going to release the game at the same time. Otherwise the story would get spoiled.
So freaking excited. xD This was something really good to wake up to! Thanks, Sickr!
Pingback: Finally: Skyward Sword release date!
Ocarina of Time was released on November 21st, and a couple others were released between the winter months (November through February), so it really fits the normal Zelda dates. Can’t wait for this!!
IN THE WORDS OF BART SCOTT…..CANT WAIT………NOV 20 IS EARLIER THAN I EXPECTED SO IM MORE HAPPY THAN UPSET…IN 3 MONTHS ILL BE LOCKED UP IN MY ROOM FOR DAYZZZZZZZZZ…..

Yes!!! Love the Zelda games.
i really cant wait
Ohhhhhh myyy GODDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD…. IM so fricken excited!!!!! .. MY HANDS ARE PARALYZED!!!!
I’m getting really sick of Europe. It isn’t fair that they get the three games AND Skyward Sword before we do. Stop neglecting USA Nintendo in favor of the bloody Europeans
We’ve technically had it better than the Europeans for about a good fifteen years now.
^This. For the longest time, Europeans were getting games months later than us Americans. They level the playing field a LITTLE, and you’re already complaining? Give me a break…
the day after my birthday!(Sunday) maybe I’ll get it for myself
Timed with the release of the final Eragon book! Freaking awesome!
That’s a good release date, it gives me plenty of time to play Battlefield 3 and Skyrim; so I won’t have too many awesome games sucking up my time.
I’m sick of Europe always getting the longer end of the stick. Bastards.
sorry,but no….you do realize that us int the Americas have gotten it better for about 15 years right?
couldn’t agree more
Best. Update. Ever.
Nov 20th get in my belly.
It releases five days before my birthday! 8D
Best. Birthday. Week. Ever.
I’m getting it on Thanksgiving. xD
And I’m curious… where did you guys get these Link Legos from the homepage?
18th of NOVEMBER I AM THERE FUCK YES!!!
I live in the Arabian Peninsula, but it’s good that we will not have to wait too much ..
probably two or three weeks only ..
I’m glad to have a date, but I’m also dreading it too. If I don’t get the game right away, I’m going to HAVE to stay away from the internet *as much as possible* to not have that game be spoiled for me. This is going to be tough…
