Since the beginning
the Legend of Zelda series has been closely connected to a certain metal.
Whether it’s the gold-ish plating on the original NES game, the limited gold
Ocarina game pak, and the gold coloring on the Wind Waker disc, Zelda is often
seen with what the scientific table calls Au. Now you can add another one to
the history books, as Nintendo today revealed the limited edition bundle for
the upcoming Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, which includes, among other
things, a gold Wii Remote.

As big a
seller as Wii Sports Resort was, is quite possible you don’t own any Wii Motion
Plus controllers in your home, a prerequisite for the first Wii-original Zelda,
making the bundle (which retails for $69.99) pretty useful. With a fancy
outside, including the classic Zelda crest, looks nice enough that we almost want
to play other Wii Motion Plus games. Almost.
buy Skyward Sword with or without the new Remote, purchase it early enough and
you’ll get a special soundtrack. Created for Zelda’s 25th Anniversary, the CD
contains orchestral versions of classic music from the franchise. The game
comes out November 20, and along with this news Nintendo confirmed that Professor
Layton and the Last Specter for DS is out October 17, and that Hudson and
Nintendo are co-publishing a new version of Tetris in early October for 3DS.
That should keep you Nintendo fans satiated for at least another day, right?
