Nintendo has confirmed that the special edition of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, which includes a gold, Zelda-branded Wii Remote, will launch in Europe.

The bundle includes a copy of the game, a music CD featuring selected songs from The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony, and a golden Wii Remote Plus controller bearing the Hylian Crest. Note that the golden Wii Remote Plus will simply be golden in colour and will not contain any actual precious metals. You know, just in case you were wondering.

To get it, you need to pre-order the game, due out in November. "Stocks are limited and the limited edition bundle will only be available to fans who pre-order before release across Europe on 18th November," Nintendo said this morning.

If you don't pre-order but purchase the game early at launch, you'll receive a copy of the game and a copy of the music CD available in the limited edition bundle. But you'll need to be quick off the mark, Nintendo said, as this game and CD special edition is only available while stocks last. Once the game and CD special edition is sold out, fans will receive a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword only.

In the US the Limited Edition costs $69.99 (around £42).
