Continuing the epic story of this nintendo classic, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is being released to retailers today according to Nintendo's PR site. Combining the Wii Remote Plus controller with classic puzzle solving that has been a staple of the series,  Zelda:SS brings old gameplay together with new controls to further the next chapter of Link's epic quest.

Per Nintendo:

"Explore a massive, multilayered world that seamlessly blends soaring exploration in a sea of clouds with intense ground-based adventuring that blurs the line between the main world and traditional Zelda dungeons. Link™ soars through the skies on the back of a noble bird and dives beneath the clouds to the continent below in an epic quest that lays the foundation for the events in the critically acclaimed The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time."

The game is also being sold as a stand alone game as well as in a bundle pack that includes an orchestral CD as well as a gold Wii Remote Plus controller.
