Nintendo's long-awaited Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword finally arrives in Europe on 18th November.

Skyward Sword sees the usual Hylian adventuring uprooted to a world in the clouds.

It is also set earlier than any other Zelda game to date, and will chronicle the story of Link constructing the series' legendary Master Sword.

The game has been in development for the entirety of the Wii's life.

The previous Zelda for home consoles, Twilight Princess, was developed for GameCube but had a Wii port ready at the system's launch.
