Kotaku has a short article up that talks about how long Skyward Sword is. We’ve heard Shigeru Miyamoto say that Skyward Sword would have at least 50-100 hours of gameplay. So was he right? Apparently so, because the author of this article states he reached about nearly the same amount during his playthrough of Skyward Sword.
I finished Skyward Sword last week with 47 hours on my play clock. I did many side missions, but not all. A friend who worked for another outlet had finished the game in 35. He had poked around less.
He also mentioned the Hero Mode in the game that unlocks itself after you have beaten the game and it allows you to replay the game with a bit more difficulty as well as there being some slight differences in dialogue found in the game. With this mode available it would give players more hours of gameplay at their disposal.

I find this to be rather awesome. I was hoping that Skyward Sword would have a lot of gameplay in it that way I could sit down and enjoy it for a while rather than have it end pretty quickly. I’m also excited for the Hero Mode. I can’t wait until I unlock that feature.
