Zelda: Skyward Sword in early 2011

Broken promises

Nintendo has the newest Wii instalment slated for release in the first few months of next year.

Speaking to the Official Nintendo Magazine UK, producer Eiji Aonuma confirms that The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is tentatively set for release in early 2011.

"The basis we have now is very, very solid. Early 2011 - that is what we're aiming for."

Despite pledging a release for new Wii Zelda, Mario, and Metroid games in 2010, Nintendo has backpedalled on the promise. Super Mario Galaxy 2 is now available and Metroid: Other M will be out in August, but The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is the one to break the pledge with news of a 2011 release.
