The classic Wii title, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, is available to purchase and download on the Wii U eShop starting today. The news comes by way of today's 3DS-focused Nintendo Direct presentation.

Skyward Sword is pushed forward by Nintendo as the first game in the official Legend of Zelda chronology, meaning that it gives you an idea of how the timeline kicks off. The version appearing on the eShop is the original Skyward Sword, meaning it is not remastered and it uses the divisive motion controls from the original Wii release.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is set to hit the Wii U eShop at some point today.
