Nintendo has announced that The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will be released across Europe and the UK on November 18. The game looks set to be one of the last triple-A releases for the Nintendo console, with the Wii U due in 2012.

In Skyward Sword players will be able to make use of the Wii Remote Plus (or Wii Remote and Wii MotionPlus) to replicate the angle of your sword slices during battle.

Also coming from Nintendo this year is the budget release of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess on September 16, and a free version of the Game Boy Advance game The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords - which will be downloadable via the DSiWare store on 3DS, DSi and DSi XL. No date for Four Swords has been set, with Nintendo stating it will be released at some point in September.
