The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is coming to Virtual Console today on the Wii U.
The Legend of Zelda: Fans will have plenty of chances to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the legendary series this fall. A sampling of the products on the way includes:
- The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, previously released on the Wii console, launches for the Virtual Console service today in Nintendo eShop for Wii U.
- This holiday season Nintendo will release four special amiibo figures: 8-Bit Link, Ocarina of Time Link and a two-pack that includes both Toon Link and Zelda from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. These amiibo will work the same as Super Smash Bros. series Link, Toon Link and Zelda amiibo, and will also have special functionality in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild when it launches next year.
- The original game that launched the Zelda franchise will be included when the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition launches on Nov. 11.
