Zelda games don't come by that often, especially the home console variants, so it's always a special occasion when a new one is released.
Twilight Princess came out with the release of the Wii back in 2006 and the end of the GameCube, and now the next iteration is out, hopefully it won't mean it's the end of the Wii, as Skyward Sword shows so much potential it'd be great for other games to follow on.
I didn't have a chance to play any Skyward Sword last night as I was at BUG 28, but I'm looking forward to pouring lots of hours into this lovely new game during the weekend. Plus I'm sure my Wii is happy that it's getting some use.
One thing that does feel a little grim, or perhaps Persona-fied is how you have to literally jump to your death to call your bird, seems very adventurous and almost dangerous to be doing in a Zelda title, although it is a 12 rated game.
