- Get Carried Away – take to the skies on the back of Loftwings, huge birds that will whisk you from place to place on your search for that love-of-your-life, Zelda.
According to the gamemaker, Link's latest quest is set to be one of Nintendo's most epic games ever, having taken 100 staff members more than five years to create it.
Gamers can expect an experience that could last dozens of hours, including a boss challenge mode and more than 100 minutes of cinematic cutscenes, while optional hint movies will be available for rookie players.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is due out in November 2011 and will be released in a Limited Edition pack that includes a gold Wii Remote Plus and a special Zelda soundtrack CD.
A special Zelda concert will be held in London in October to commemorate the milestone, while an enhanced anniversary edition of The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords will be made available as a free DSiWare download later this month.
Rather than picking up from Twilight Princess, the 2006 title that marked Link's last appearance on the Wii, Skyward Sword is instead a prequel to the entire epic saga, taking us back to a time when Link and Zelda were childhood friends. They'll both be at a school, where Link's father is headmaster. The plot of the game will follow Link as he assembles the Master Sword, the weapon he has wielded throughout the series.
It's also been confirmed that the game will have three different HUD settings. The Standard setting shows the Wii remote on-screen at all times, with button prompts. Light removes the Wii remote overlay but keeps the prompts. Pro is for those who want to play in the old-fashioned way, with only health and other relevant info kept on-screen.
Skyward Sword has been described as one of the biggest development projects in Nintendo's history. We'll get to see if it was worth the wait when it swishes into action on November 18th.
The new Wii title will begin in Skyloft, a majestic town high above the clouds, and will tell a story that reveals the origins of many of the classic elements of the Zelda series, including the creation of the legendary Master Sword.
At the start of Skyward Sword, players will follow hero Link and experience his special bond with his childhood friend Zelda, while soaring through the skies in exciting bird-racing competitions.
However, this is only the start of an adventure that Nintendo has described as being one of the longest and most inventive instalments of the classic series to date.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is launching this November only on Wii and marks the 25th anniversary of the Zelda franchise.
A special edition version of the game is to be released that includes a golden Wii Remote Plus and a music CD that includes orchestra arrangements of famous Zelda melodies.
Nintendo has released new gameplay details for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword as it continues to build anticipation for the game's fast-approaching launch.
The first Zelda adventure to be created exclusively for Wii, Skyward Sword will use the Wii MotionPlus peripheral to offer precise one-to-one control over hero Link's sword attacks, as well as equipment such as the bow and slingshot.
One of the new additions made to accommodate the game's motion-sensing capabilities is dowsing, an ability that lets players aim their sword around the screen in first-person mode to sense the location of hidden objects.
Another new innovation is the Dash ability, which allows Link to run faster and perform acrobatic feats while the A button is held, at the cost of some of his stamina.
The stamina gauge is also essential for using techniques such as the devastating Spin Attack, meaning players will need to pace themselves wisely on their adventure.
Nintendo hails success of London's Zelda anniversary concert
Nintendo has stated that it was "blown away" by the success of The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony concert, which took place in London on October 25th 2011.
Thousands of fans from across Europe flocked to the capital to watch the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra perform a number of famous arrangements from the iconic videogame series, with various special guests in attendance.
Among them were veteran Zelda director Eiji Aonuma and legendary Nintendo composer Koji Kondo, while Zelda Williams - daughter of Hollywood star Robin Williams, who named her after the series' titular princess - acted as compere.
Attendees came dressed in costume as Zelda characters and queued around the block to hear performances of the classic themes, before taking to Twitter to register their praise for an "enchanting" and "magical" occasion.
Nintendo's Laurent Fischer said: "We see this as an absolutely fitting way to celebrate such an important anniversary - 25 years of The Legend of Zelda series."
Speaking to investors, Nintendo has offered its first confirmation that its new Wii U console will launch in all major markets - including the UK - for Christmas 2012. The console, first revealed at E3 last year, was already pencilled in for a 2012 release, but it was unclear if that only referred to Japan.
The console is an evolution of the existing Wii, with far more graphical power, HD graphics and an innovative new tablet controller which works together with the Wii remote. The console was shown off again at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this month, and will be the centrepiece of Nintendo's presence at E3 in June.
As for software, a new Super Smash Bros game is known to be in development while Legend of Zelda has been used for some demonstrations. Exclusive Wii U versions of smash hits such as Batman: Arkham City, Ghost Recon, Battlefield, Assassin's Creed and Darksiders also feature in the console's confirmed line up.
So that's the Christmas shopping sorted nice and early then.
There's no denying it, we've been spoiled rotten by the flood of quality games this year. There isn't enough time in the day to get through them all! Fortunately, the Christmas holidays are here to give us a little more time to catch up on the best of 2011.
We've hand-picked a selection of games from this year's release schedule that are all worthy of your Christmas Gaming time...
Batman Arkham City
A comic hero game that turned out to be very good? We were left speechless when Arkham Asylum was released in 2009. Even more incredibly, Rocksteady Studios' sequel managed to be even better than the first!
Batman Arkham City sets you in a massive open world, players assume the role of a Batman imprisoned in the sprawling super-prison of Arkham City. Every nemesis you could hope for makes an appearance in the game - as well as an epic storyline offering dozens of hours of gameplay, there's a huge quantity of sidequests and missions to explore once you've put the baddies to bed.
This third outing for Nathan Drake is his grandest adventure yet. Set amongst deserts, lost cities and ruins, Uncharted 3 is a technically astonishing PlayStation 3 game that features all of the exploration, fighting and explosive set-pieces we've come to expect from the series.
Better multiplayer, more customisation options and some of the most impressive motion-capture animations to hit gaming make Uncharted 3 an unmissable, cinematic rollercoaster. Don't miss out on one of gaming's finest adventures.
The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim
If you can't get your money's worth out of a game like The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, you're very hard to please indeed! Bethesda's follow-up to the best-selling game Oblivion left players and critics alike reeling. A gorgeously rendered, enormous world stuffed with terrifying dungeons, endless quest-lines and open-world dragon fights, Skyrim packs more content into a side-quest than most games manage full stop.
Are you an archer, berserker, magician or rogue? Whatever your play-style, there's a highly customisable role for you in this most epic of RPGs. Hundreds of hours of gameplay are here for players to gorge themselves on, all spread across a game that is likely to become one of the most fondly remembered of this generation. The greatest RPG of all time? It might just be.
Gears of War 3
Tying up all the loose ends of the previous games, this climax to the best-selling Gears of Wars franchise sees Marcus Fenix and co set out to finish the Locust Horde once and for all in Gears of War 3. Some of the most awesome baddies the series has ever seen make their appearance in this conclusion, and there'll be no shortage of sweaty palms once the fighting's over.
Multiplayer provides endless re-playability for the game, as you team up with friends to take on wave after wave of Locust forces. If you'd rather rip your friend's face off than lend a helping hand, you can now fight as the enemy, raining horrible destruction on your whole family once the Christmas pudding's gone down.
Once mocked by gamers for churning out what often amounted to little more than annual updates, EA has been on a charm-offensive these last five years or so, bringing significant innovation and improvements to their flagship footie title every single time.
FIFA 12 sees the introduction of a far more dynamic system for defending where you can link up with an AI defender to put pressure on attackers. Head to Head seasons allow you to take part in a highly competitive ladder tournament, while simply playing the game also adds points to your chosen club. It's as addictive as ever, and about as fully-featured a sports game as we could hope for.
The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword
The perfect game to settle into while the family are having a good old row downstairs,The Ledgend of Zelda Skyward Sword will charm the pants off you with it's perfect telling of the classic Zelda tale, mixed with the best combat and world design the series has ever seen.
Set prior to the events of the N64 (and now 3DS) classic Ocarina of Time, Skyward Sword starts off in a beautiful cloud city by the name of Skyloft. Of course, it's not long until Link's childhood friend Zelda is whisked off into the lands below, beginning a fantastic journey of world exploration, soaring flight, and devilishly tricky dungeons. Skyward Sword is a must-play for any Zelda fans, past or present.
