Well, with disc-based media now the standard (and with digital downloads becoming the next wave of game distribution), the subtle joy of gold-painted cartridges is a thing of the past it seems. However, today Nintendo officially announced a limited edition bundle for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, which will include a gold Wiimote complete with a sweet-looking Triforce engraving. Sure, it’s just a controller with a gold paint finish, but it’s the thought that counts, people. Plus, some people (including myself) never really bought a Motion Plus peripheral at the start. Whoops!
The Skyward Sword bundle will retail at $69.99 and will also include a CD with select recordings from the Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary concert tour. The tour is slated to begin this fall. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is slated for release on November 20, 2011.
So, with this Zelda bundle officially announced, does this further make it a first day purchase?
