Only a few short days stand between you and what's being called one of the best ever entries in Nintendo's Legend of Zelda series. And, if you live in the greater New York City area, it'll be one day less. The Japanese game giant's holding a launch event in its Nintendo World store in Rockefeller Center this Saturday, where fans will be able to get the game a day early. You'll also get a limited-edition poster and a look at a snazzy Master Sword replica while you're there, too.

Fans will also be able to celebrate the release of Skyward Sword with a new comic from Penny Arcade's Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik. It'll be updated weekly on the official Zelda site over the next five weeks. So, you'll be on your second playthrough by then, right?
