I may have some unpleasant news for all fans everywhere, as I was just browsing Amazon and got curious to see if they had any information on the distribution of Skyward Sword, and it states that Skyward Sword will be released “on” December 31, 2011.

This has not been officially confirmed by Nintendo mind you (and they make note of this on the page as well saying “The price and release date on this pre-order game have not been confirmed at this time. Pre-orders will be covered pre-order price guarantee”), and Nintendo seems to indicate that only minor things remain to be done as the game is for the most part finished, which would make one think that at latest they would only take until perhaps this time next year. However, Amazon gives a definite release date for the title (and it’s very unlike them to give a definite date for something unless they are fairly certain it is true), making one wonder how they came by this date or if it is just a guess on Amazon’s part. It makes one wonder why they say “on” and not “by” December 31, 2011. Let’s hope that the latter is the case and that maybe we’ll get it by Valentine’s Day of next year, because I can think of many people who are going to be very angry if this amazing game that’s, to use Nintendo’s own words, for the most part finished is going to take an additional year and a half before they release it for our enjoyment. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that this is not the case, but Amazon gives a definite date of December 31, 2011, meaning we could potentially be waiting for this game for an even longer delay than we had for Twilight Princess. Hopefully they are just leaving the entire year open for whenever Nintendo announces, but we will have to see.
