See you next year, Link

We got out first look at Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword at E3 this year with Shigeru Miyamoto's admittedly disappointing onstage demonstration, but more disappointing was the announcement the game would land in 2011. Early 2011, we dared to hope; hopes that have now been broken in two.

Gaming website Pocket Lint recently interviewed Miyamoto, where he stated the game is "over half finished". To expect Nintendo to finish the other half between now and March is optimism bordering on insanity, so don't be surprised if Skyward Sword lands as Nintendo's big Christmas gift of 2011.

How do you feel about this news?
