Nintendo has strongly been hinting that Skyward Sword would be the biggest Zelda game ever, but at their pre-Tokyo Game Show conference we now found out exactly what Nintendo meant. In the conference, creator of the series Shigeru Miyamoto talked about the game while a montage of gameplay clips ran. He revealed that the company has had a team of 100 developers hard at work on the game for 5 years. The sum of all this work adds up to a game that will supposedly last players somewhere between 50 and 100 hours.

The footage showed off some pretty crazy looking boss battles with giant creatures. Miyamoto also revealed that at the completion of the game, players will unlock a “boss rush” mode similar to that of Ocarina of Time 3D.

A lengthy new Zelda adventure is perfectly fine with me, I don’t know about the rest of you. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is set for release on November 20, 2011. Go ahead and enjoy the brand new Tokyo Game Show trailer below.

And here is the gameplay montage that was shown as well.
