Limited Zelda: Skyward Sword bundle has gold Wii Remote

And a free soundtrack for every early purchaser

Nintendo has revealed a limited edition Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword bundle that will pack the game with a sweet-looking Zelda-themed gold Wii Remote Plus.


The remote has a shiny gold body, gold d-pad and 'A' buttons and the Zelda royal crest printed over the speaker area of the remote. It includes Wii MotionPlus functionality built-in, and will come as part of the limited $70 bundle (pictured). Not bad for an extra $20.

Nintendo is also giving away a free soundtrack CD with every copy of Skyward Sword in the initial production run - in both the limited edition bundle and the standalone game.

As Nintendo explains: "As an additional 25th anniversary treat for fans who purchase the game early, every copy in the initial production, whether sold by itself or as a part of the limited-edition bundle, will come with a free CD featuring select orchestral arrangements of iconic music spanning the history of the franchise which will be performed at The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony Concert performances in October 2011."

The bundle hits US shelves when the game launches there on November 20 - two days after UK's recently-confirmed November 18 release. The PR made no mention of a similar deal in UK.
