Miyamoto: New Zelda to Use WiiMotionPlus

Zelda Wii

Speaking in a Q&A from last week (via Wired), Shigeru Miyamoto has revealed that the new Legend of Zelda coming to the Wii will use WiiMotionPlus, although it is still unclear if it’ll be exclusively used with the game.

“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 stated during an October 30 Q&A session,” he said.

“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.”

He revealed the game was in development at E3 this past June, showing the first concept art for the game as well as revealing he would like to see WMP used for the game.

He also said back then he hopes to properly reveal it next year.
