Shield to the face

It's been a while since we heard anything concrete about the highly awaited The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Revealed at E3 2010 with nary a peep afterward, until one day last December, out of nowhere, Nintendo legend Shigeru Miyamoto poked his head out to say "it's half-finished, y'all."

Now we have more.

During a recent investor meeting in Japan (via Destructoid), Nintendo revealed that the title was in the "finishing touches" phase of development. Which sounds considerably more than half-way done.

We went hands-on with the title during E3, so be sure to check out First Impressions for more Skyward Sword to tide you over until Link resurfaces again.
