According to the folks over at GameStop, our beloved Zelda Wii is set for release on November 1st, 2010. It surely just seems like a placeholder date as the 1st of the month is usually reserved for such games that have no official release date. However, it does seem very plausible as a November release will allow the game to become Nintendo’s top game come this holiday season. Last year Spirit Tracks released a bit late with a December release date, and while that is certainly possible for Zelda Wii, a release date in November makes more sense as it gives the game even more time on the shelves for the holiday season.
There is also the possibility that the game doesn’t make the 2010 release date as we’ve been told that the game won’t be released into its perfect. The release date is important to them as a holiday release would give the game a huge bump in sales, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the game got pushed back just a bit in order to finish it up. We should be hearing more in a few short months when E3 2010 roles around.
