Taking to the stage at Nintendo's E3 keynote at the Nokia theater in Los Angeles, Shigeru Miyamoto announced that The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will arrive on Wii during Holiday 2011. This represents a new release window for the MotionPlus-enabled adventure, which was pushed back until after the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D.
One of the most storied franchises in history soars to new heights. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword shakes up the tried-and-true adventure game formula and marks a turning point for the franchise. The introduction of full motion controls enabled by Wii MotionPlus technology synchronizes player movements with Link's actions while offering the most intuitive play control of any game in the series to date.
