So you got Wii Sports Resort.  You’ve had your fun with the 1:1 motion controls and the mini-games.  But now what?

Miyamoto to the rescue!  In a recent interview with Wired, he declared the extent to which the next Legend of Zelda game will use the device.

It’s a lot.  So much so, that MotionPlus will probably be required to play it at all.

Notice I say probably.  Nothing is set in stone yet, although Miyamoto and Co. have entwined the use of MotionPlus into the game so completely that an official Nintendo announcement would seem almost superfluous at this point.

He said at a recent Japanese Q & A, “In this (installment of the series), we’re using MotionPlus to make you feel much more like you’re actually fighting while holding a sword in your hand… In the previous game, you aimed at things by pointing at the screen, but this time we’ll use MotionPlus to create a much more convenient targeting system and a more pleasurable playing experience.”  Archery, anyone?

Will we finally get the realistic Zelda that we’ve been teased with since before Wind Waker was unleashed upon us?  I’m just hoping to finally get a chance to use my Wii sword.

A transcript of the Q & A in Japanese can be found here.  You’ll have to wait a bit for the translated version.

  1. Eh, I dunno. I really liked the Wii functionality in Twilight Princess for aiming with the bow and hookshot, although everything else which required the waggle was annoying. That said, even with the motion plus, I don’t think Zelda is a game which I feel should be focusing on 1:1 sword combat as one of its main appeals. Zelda’s a game I like to sit back and relax with, the only effort coming from the brain when a tricky puzzle arises. But I’ll wait and see how this pans out.

    What I’m really interested in for this game is the patent which was released a while back about having certain parts of the game play themselves for the player if things got tough. I wasn’t quite sure what was going on there and it didn’t seem like such a good idea, but it’ll be interesting to see how that works.

  2. Nick, you really own a Wii sword…can we be best friends so I can come over and play with it?

  3. I would love a Wii Motion Plus Zelda. I hope this becomes reality.

    I just want a Zelda that’s actually hard…

  5. This actually gives me a good idea: I should buy the new Zelda and play it without Wii Motion Plus to see how far I can get.

  6. I hope they make the combat more complex.

      A pound of feathers weihgs 7000 grains, while a pound of gold weihgs 5760 grains. That is because feathers and most ordinary items use the common avoirdupois system of weights that has 437.5 grains per ounce and 16 ounces per pound, thus 437.5 X 16 = 7000 grains per avoirdupois pound. Gold and such precious metals use the troy system that has 480 grains per ounce and 12 ounces per pound, so 480 x 12 = 5760 grains per pound.
