Next Zelda Will Use MotionPlus for Better Sword Fights


"There's still a lot left to learn about the next official Zelda installment on the Wii, but what we now know about its gameplay just became a little more specific. At a recent Q&A session in Tokyo, Shigeru Miyamoto confirmed a few details regarding the game's use of Wii MotionPlus for sword fighting and targeting (Game|Life via Joystiq).

"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," Miyamoto said. While that seems to suggest the potential for 1-to-1 motion control fidelity (that is, individual movements would translate directly in-game) as opposed to just generally wiggling the controller to initiate sword attacks, Miyamoto apparently didn't quite go so far as to confirm it, it seems.

He did, however, also mention that MotionPlus will also be used to improve the targeting in the game. "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." It's hard to see how strictly using motion controls to aim rather than the Wii remote's infrared pointer (which at least sounds like what Miyamoto is suggesting) would make for an easier or more convenient system, but hey, if Miyamoto says so, we'll give him the benefit of the doubt (that man loves cats, after all).

Still unclear is whether this new Zelda will actually require MotionPlus to play. When the title was announced at E3 earlier this year, Nintendo only said MotionPlus requirement could be a possibility but it hadn't been settled yet. But if sword fighting and aiming both use MotionPlus in such an ingrained manner, it sure seems to be shaping up that way."

tl;dr: Better gameplay mothaf*cka.

Heh. It was obvious that this would happen someday considering the nature of the LoZ games. This is great IMO. It'll make the game definitely better and more realistic since we won't be able to swing the WiiMote randomly with no enthusiasm at all.

Also, I'm starting to like this share news to the community thing.

Anyway, thoughts?

Joe22 is an unknown quantity at this point

I could only think he would mean aiming like how it is done in Wii sports resort in archery, but done so that you don't need to switch hands.

yeah, but they will probably purposely screw up the controls just so you have to get the "Motion Plus"...

I'm not sure what to think about this. I mean, it could go really really good, or really really bad. I can't see much middle ground. I guess we'll just have to see how this one turns out.
