The next Zelda title, we learned today, is about to go MotionPlus exclusive. The confirmation came from notoriously loose-lipped Shigeru Miyamoto, in an interview from Tokyo this week.
â€œIn this (installment of the series), weâ€™re using MotionPlus to make you feel much more like youâ€™re actually fighting while holding a sword in your hand,â€ Miyamoto said. â€œIn the previous game, you aimed at things by pointing at the screen, but this time weâ€™ll use MotionPlus to create a much more convenient targeting system and a more pleasurable playing experience.â€
With only two games taking real advantage of MotionPlus thus far, this could be seen as a fairly risky move on Nintendo’s part. Or a brilliant one, as there is no denying the power of the Zelda brand when it comes to moving units. I guess we’ll see, won’t we?
