Zelda: Skyward Sword is Nintendo’s biggest project ever

The highly-anticipated The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword has been declared “the biggest project Nintendo has ever done” by the company’s US PR manager David Young.

Speaking in a recent video walkthrough demonstrating the game’s combat mechanics, Mr Young stressed the scale of the title’s development, revealing the game is “full of content”.

“A gigantic team of people have been creating this game for months, [and] have been putting tonnes of hours into it,” he said.

“As you’re going through and exploring dungeons from place to place you’re going to find tonnes of different things to see, explore and collect.”

In a recent Tokyo press conference Nintendo legend Shigeru Miyamoto claimed Skyward Sword could take between 50 and 100 hours to complete, suggesting gamers can expect the latest instalment in the veteran franchise to be a mammoth experience.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is due for release in Europe on November 18th 2011, and will round off the 25th anniversary of the Zelda saga’s launch.
