Zelda on Wii: Swordplay Confirmed

Miyamoto shares some good news.

Posted by Staff
Whilst there has been some concern among Nintendo fanboys of late, regarding the controls for the Wii version of the hugely anticipated The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Shigeru Miyamoto has confirmed that the WiiMote will be able to function as a sword in the game (in a similar fashion to Ubisoft's Wii launch title Red Steel).

Speaking to Nintendo Dream, Miyamoto also told them he was, "…also thinking I can remake some of my GameCube games for Wii, making use of the Wii-mote. Of course you can wander into a second hand shop and buy a lot of these games still, so I don't think we can release these games at full price. Since a lot of the development cost has already been accounted for, we'll be able to release these at a much more affordable price."

Sounds like a solid plan to SPOnG and we look forward to revisiting past GameCube glories with Wii-enhanced features. Of course, should this strategy come to fruition, the games will most likely target the casual/non-traditional gamer demographic that Nintendo is courting with Wii, most of whom will not have sampled the joys of Windwaker and Mario Sunshine.

SPOnG will be sure to keep you posted on this interesting Wii development, as we hope it was something more than a mere throwaway comment in an interview.
