The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword's release being pushed back to 2011 might have been a disappointing pill to swallow, but soldier on we must. Whilst not making it in-time for this year's Christmas wish list, the release window for Link's latest adventure is materializing.

Speaking to Official Nintendo Magazine UK, Skyward Sword producer Eiji Aonuma had this to say about the game's scheduled launch:

The basis we have now is very, very solid...Early 2011 - that is what we're aiming for.

If the game does make that release target, it will certainly be a great way to kick 2011 off with a top-quality MotionPlus title, as well as rounding out Nintendo's 2010 fiscal year ending in March.
