For many Wii owners, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is the most hotly-anticipated game of the year. Nintendo is holding a couple of pre-release events, along with opportunities to buy the game early.
New York's event is tomorrow, the 19th, at Nintendo's flagship store, Nintendo World. Attractions include a replica Master Sword, trivia challenges, and a historical showcase for the whole Zelda series. The game will be for sale at the World Store that day, a day before it is released to the rest of North America. Early buyers will get a bonus poster with purchase.
The Nintendo World event runs from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., with the Master Sword unveiling at 10:00. Cosplay is welcome!
Meanwhile, Zelda fans in Canada have a three-day preview event to look forward to at the Toronto Eaton Centre. Starting today and ending Sunday, Nintendo is hosting a pre-launch event at Sears Court, with playable demos and photo ops with Zelda, Link, and Ghirahim. The first 150 people to show up today and tomorrow get wristbands, allowing them to buy the game tomorrow evening. Early buyers will have to pick up their copies at Future Shop between 9:00 and 10:00 p.m.. (Yes, that's an hour for up to 300 potential buyers. Maybe show up early.)
The Toronto event runs from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. today, 9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. tomorrow, and 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Sunday. If this all seems like too much of a hassle for a video game, Skyward Sword launches officially in North America this Sunday.
