Uhm if it's being localized by Nintendo and NOT just a collection/re-release (such as metroid prime collection or Mario All stars) then I don't see it being such a limited release. From what I hear though it's an awesome game, and if you're a collector then it's probably worth having a second sealed copy anyway but I don't think it will be a particularly rare game. Though then again, it is coming out rather late in the wii's cycle, still though I can't imagine it becoming like the metroid prime trilogy collection in terms of rarity.
Metroid Prime Trilogy is selling for $135 new on Amazon, and Skyward Sword Collector's Edition is selling for $118. This one definitely has the potential to increase in value a few months after purchase.
Probably better than buying stocks :-/

metroid prime collector's edition is a rare example of a game, a super limited one time release that's a special collection of older games redone for a new console(and it was expensive in the first place anyways). and zelda collector's edition resells well right now, but it's not exactly cheap to begin with. i doubt this game will be reselling super well in a few years, just look at other jrpgs like lost odyssey or tales of vesperia, both of them are very good jrpgs but you can pick them up at the bargain bin anywhere for like 5 bucks.
so buy the one game you want to play but don't buy more than that, the age of games like panzer dragoon saga shooting up in value is behind us. things that were collectable and rare in the past tend to not be the same in the present, because people have learned they can have value and try to cash in on it. just look at beany babies, star wars figures or baseball cards. all of these exploded in value after their main release. then people tried to step in foolishly thinking it would happen again only to be left with a trunk full of worthless bean filled animals. a few exceptions of course apply but its pretty much impossible to predict what will be the next big hot reseller. cause if it were easy to predict then everyone would do it and then they wouldn't end up being worth much.
