Zelda Wii goes WiiMotionPlus exclusive, says Aonuma

Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has said in this week’s issue of Famitsu that the newest installment of the series will be a WiiMotionPlus exclusive.

It echoes comments made by Shigeru Miyamoto last year, when he said the title would use the Wiimote add-on, although he didn’t state at the time if it was to be exclusively used.

After actually making it compatible, it just feels so natural. Link’s sword and the controller that you’re holding become one,” said Aonuma.

The producer also said he’d “like to show something playable” at E3. On Friday, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said the game will be revealed at the event in June.

The title doesn’t have a date yet, but it is slated for the end of this year, according to comments made recently by Iwata.

Thanks, Andriasang.

    Many people’s biggest complaint with Twilight Princess was that your hand movements didn’t actually correlate to the movement of your sword. This should be awesome.

    If Nintendo had any sense, they’d pack the Wii Motion Plus *with* every new console, and every game that requires it.

    Does this mean I’ve got to stand up and swing my arms in big motions to hack at Ganon & Co? Sounds tiring, can’t I just have a button to press instead?

    That’s a fantastic way of fucking a few extra quid out of the faithful.

    I doff my business cap to you Nintendo. :D

    The exercise will do you good.
