During a recent Q&A session in Japan, Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto spoke briefly about the next Zelda title for the Wii, specifically relating to the inclusion of Wii MotionPlus controls, Wired reports. This isn’t the first time Miyamoto has spoken about this, but it never hurts to hear a little more about Link’s next adventure.
In response to the MotionPlus question, Miyamoto explained:
"We're implementing it so that players can feel like they themselves are holding the sword. In the previous Zelda (Twilight Princess) the targeting was based on the IR pointer. This time however, we'll be using MotionPlus for a variety of more convenient targeting systems that will allow for more pleasant gameplay."
"Pleasant" is exactly the word that comes to mind when I think of being able to have complete control over Link's sword-wielding arm. Joy MotionPlus? I think so.
