Legend of Zelda, Skyward Sword

Anyone who is a Zelda fan like myself knows that Nintendo recently announced another Legend of Zelda game, this one will be called the Skyward Sword and will basically take place before all the other games in the series, it will tell the history of Hyrule and the Master Sword.
The most interesting thing about this title is that it will be played on the Wii  with the Motion Plus controller, so if you're like me and haven't played the Wii in the past year you'll probably have to go out and buy the motion plus plug-in for you wii mote. In my opinion the controls will make or break this game as the players motions with the wii mote will  control your in-game sword while the nunchuck will control your shield, if this system is fluent then this game will be a huge hit with both the current Wii and Zelda community. Most of the motion controls for 1st and 3rd person games on the Wii have not been all too impressive and I am hoping Nintendo really pulls through on this one because they aren't doing all too well to compete with Sony and Microsoft and a successful Zelda game with its massive fan base would be a great start as they try to regain some of their lost audience since the release of the Wii. As for a release date nothing is confirmed but according to speculation it will be released on Sept. 25th, 2011. All we can do as of now is hope and pray that Nintendo pulls through on this and gives us a much anticipated hit for the Wii.

  5. Glad they're using the Motion Plus for this one, the swordplay in Twilight Princess was a bit of a mess.

  8. I am looking forward to this game as well, and I will most likely get it and the motion plus accessory. I love zelda, what can I say...

    But I despise motion control games. For me, the fun is all in the controller. If I wanted exercise, I would go outside.

  9. I can't say I'm impressed with the fact that it's still a Wii game. Surely the Kinect and the PS3 Move could adapt to it now?

  10. To be honest the only two Zelda games I actually enjoyed were "A Link to the Past", and "Ocarina of Time".
