Golden Zelda Wii Remote Plus, CD, To Be Bundled With Skyward Sword
In Zelda news on Monday 29 August 2011
Looking forward to Skyward Sword? Aren’t we all. But isn’t there something in the way of you playing it? Say, a Wii Remote? More specifically, a Wii Remote Plus? You need one to play the game, and as there hasn’t really been any great games that use the upgraded controller (which has the same functionality as a Wii Motion Plus extension, only built into the remote), this may finally be the time that you lay down the cash for your own. Well, the money-grabbers at Nintendo are way ahead of you.
Nintendo are releasing a special edition of Skyward Sword, featuring the golden, Zelda-themed Wii Remote Plus we saw at their E3 press conference. It will set you back $70, if you live in the US. Problem solved! Now not only will you be able to experience 1:1 sword motion, you can do it with 100% more Zelda in your right hand. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like there will be an accompanying golden nunchuck, so you’ll have to put up with clashing colours. Sorry, perfectionists.
Also, the first run of both versions of Skyward Sword will contain a CD featuring music from the Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony Tour (also mentioned at E3). Certainly a nice, free extra!
