Yes, if there's a good deal for Day 1 purchases.

Yeah, but I probably won't play it day 1. November is a very busy month.

If only I did not have the Skyrim Collectors Edition preordered I would totally get Skyward Sword day 1 but hopefully I can get it soon after.

Most of the games coming out for Wii for the rest of this year don't interest me. Zelda will be a day one purchase for me.

Yes, it will be a Day 1 Purchase. Day -X if I can. Gold Wiimote Bundle if possible.

I'm...kinda thinking it'll be better than either Galaxy at this point. Call me crazy, but that's what I'm thinking.

Maybe.

For me, it depends if there are any special pre-order bonuses or bundles. The game I can wait on, because my backlog is huge. But a special pre-order goodie? Yes please.

November is going to be insane! But yes, Day 1 (unless I can find it sooner :D ) as has been the case with every Zelda since OoT with me. Now to decide if I want to do a Zelda series replay to commemorate the release of a new game... (since I just finished OoT 3D and TP replay recently)

Zelda has grown quite stale for me. I liked Phantom Hourglass, but Spirit Tracks and Twilight Princess did nothing for me. Keeping that in mind, I'd say my two favorite 'Zelda' games from the past two generations are Okami and Beyond Good and Evil.

So this might be the first Zelda I pass on.

My answer is no for 2 reasons. One, my backlog is huge and I can't justify the price just to add it to my backlog. Two, I'm still working on Twilight Princess.

Comes out on a Sunday I believe but I'm preordering online so I won't be getting it until the Monday after I assume. It's day 1 for me from then on.
Live long and prosper.

I don't know if I'll get the collector's edition (that would be a first) or the O.G. version.
Regardless, I need to repair my Wii first.

Yep. Day 1 then sell it when done. Eventually purchase it again. No point in not. Nintendo games stay high for so long.

I probably will (debating the CE), but I don't know if I'll play it day 1. I'll have Skyrim before. Since Skyrim has quests where I can naturally stop and take a break, I'll probably play that over my Thanksgiving vacation, then save Skyward Sword for after the semester when I can play it all without a long break.

This actually looks to be the first Zelda to really mix up the formula quite a bit in a looooooong time. I was pretty salty on the series but after seeing just a glimpse of the newer media I am sold. I'm Wii-less at the moment but I will be purchasing the standard edition day one.

I still have to play Twilight Princess before I even think about buying Skyward Sword,
I'm more concerned with getting enough money up just to buy Skyrim and U3.
I'll prolly snag it off the Amazon Warehouse a couple months after it comes out.

Looks good, but not day one. Will probably be 60 hours into Skyrim - I'll be surprised if I play anything else before the year is out.

Almost certainly day 1 for me. There are 5 games I MUST have for the rest of the year...Dark Souls, Rage, Arkham City, Uncharted 3 and Skyrim. Everything else depends on how much extra cash I have. Skyward Sword is probably 6th on the list though so it most likely be purchased immediately.

Yes, gold wiimote version as well, Zelda has always been one of my favorite franchises so there's no way I'm missing an entry at launch!

Really? Tell me more. :) I haven't kept up.

Zelda might just get a sale by default. There isn't a single new game coming out the rest of the year I'm interested in. (only Halo: Anniversary and Dead Rising 2 remix)

The only question is which will weigh on me more, overcoming a tired Zelda franchise and waggle, or the unplayed pile keeping me busy the rest of the year.

Off hand:

- Some dungeons will no longer be self contained and actually occur 'in the field' although Aonuma hasn't elaborated on this.
- Item upgrade system
- Second quest, boss rush mode
- Emphasis on action and combat

I'm on official media blackout because I don't want to get spoiled the same way I got spoiled for Twilight Princess. There is a TON more info out there if you want to spoil yourself.

Gotta be a day one purchase for me. Uncharted 3 will be the same way.

I really want to pick up Arkham City on day one as well, but, I may hold off on it simply because it will likely drop faster than the previous two games I mentioned.

And hopefully, that's all I'll need to pick up late this year.

Nope. I want to play the game, but I have yet to enjoy a game that was fully based on motion controls. If I could play it with the classic controller then yes, as it is I will wait for reviews, and probably not get it until things slow down a bit in 2012.

Haven't decided yet. I have the game preordered but I am thinking about cancelling. The game looks awesome, and Nintendo games don't really drop in price; on the other hand, I'll be knee deep in Gears 3 and Rage, and I still have Wind Waker waiting in the shrinkwrap.
