The most anticipated Wii game of the entire year, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, is slowly approaching its November 20th release date, but Nintendo is taking some necessary steps to ensure that fans of The Legend of Zelda are well aware of Link’s 25th birthday.
Case -in-point, Nintendo announced a new bundle that diehard Zelda fans will surely want to invest their hard-earned money in.
The bundle comes with a limited edition Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword golden Wii Remote Plus — an accessory which is necessary to play the game. Nintendo revealed their plans to release a golden Wii Remote Plus (featuring the infamous triforce symbol) during this year’s E3, but no word had been spoken about the limited edition controller since. Fortunately, they’ve decided to make the remote an exclusive pack-in that can only be obtained by purchasing a newly announced $70 bundle that includes both the remote and a copy of Skyward Sword.
Making a limited edition bundle with an exclusive Zelda-themed controller is a great deal for Wii owners, but fans have one more thing to get excited about. Nintendo also announced that every copy in the initial production of the game will include a bonus CD featuring some select songs from the official Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony Concert. This bonus isn’t exclusive to the $70 bundle, so those who are among the first to purchase the $49.99 regular edition sans-remote will also score the soundtrack at no additional charge.
Limited edition bundles featuring exclusive items are a great option for enthusiasts who just want more from their favorite franchises, and surely this bundle will appease the masses of Zelda diehards. The bonus music CD is also a cool way to reward anyone who purchases the game upon its release, and Skyward Sword zealots will love it to death. Although, the game is said to be the biggest Legend of Zelda ever, and that’s reason enough to go out and buy the title with or without a free CD.
