Don’t you find it rather strange for Nintendo to roll out a new Legend of Zelda game at the end of a console’s lifecycle instead of doing it right at the beginning and somewhere in the middle, when the momentum is still there? No idea on whether the Legend of Zelda franchise name alone has enough power left these days to result in stupendous game sales. What we do know is this – Skyward Sword will be the latest series where Link is involved in, hitting the Nintendo Wii when November 20th rolls around.
According to Nintendo, this is a prequel of sorts, where it “lays the foundation for the events in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.” Great, now to just wait for the game, play it and write a retro-story over at Wikipedia so that everyone else who stumbles upon that article will be up to speed with what Link has gone through over the years.
I suppose that it is fitting in some way for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword to be released this year – after all, it is Link’s 25th anniversary on the video gaming scene.
