In a recent interview with Official Nintendo Magazine Eiji Aonuma talked about Skyward Sword and gave some more tidbits concerning its release date. We did hear at last month’s E3 that the game would not release in 2010 as originally targeted, but it’s nice to know that we shouldn’t have to wait too long in 2011.
“The basis we have now is very, very solid,” Aonuma told ONM in an exclusive interview that appears in the August issue of the magazine which goes on sale today. “Early 2011 – that is what we’re aiming for.”
It’s also worth noting that the Nintendo 3DS has been tagged with the early 2011 release as well, yet that handheld console has been confirmed that it will release before the end of the fiscal year for Nintendo, (March 31st, 2011). Thus, it would seem to be a safe assumption that Skyward Sword will in fact release by March 31st of next year. Nevertheless, be sure to stay tuned here at Zelda Dungeon for all the latest Skyward Sword news and be sure to bookmark our Skyward Sword Walkthrough, which we will providing once the game ships early next year.
