The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword Ready For Preorder In Japan. Box Art and Pricing Revealed

on September 27, 2011 3:07 AM

The Japanese retailer Famicom Plaza is about to open the preorder phase for the upcoming chapter of the Legend of Zelda, Skyward Sword, that will be released in Japan on November the 23rd (while, for once, Europe will get it earlier, on November the 18th, followed by the US on November the 20th).

The game will be available for preorder starting tomorrow in two versions, standard (priced at 6,800 yen) and limited (8,800 yen). While only the limited edition includes the (terribly gaudy) golden Wiimote Plus, both edition will come with a soundtrack CD titled The Legend of Zelda: 25th Anniversary Orchestra Concert Special.

The CD will be available only this year, while next year the gold box art will be replaced by the white one (that you can see in the gallery past the cut), and no CD will be included.
