Nintendo: Swing your way into the next Zelda

By Justin Mann on August 22, 2006, 3:27 PM
E3 gave people a first taste of how interacting with Nintendo's Wii will occur, with the radical change in controller design. Moving towards a more interactive experience, we've see blurbs about how you will actually move the controller(s) around to accomplish things. Nintendo took feedback at E3 as to how to improve the experience. One game in particular sure to be popular is the next release in the infamous Zelda series. An interesting IGN article talks about Nintendo's response to player feedback. On top of that, it seems Nintendo is pleased with development of the new game:

"I can't talk about it yet, but this Zelda has a lot to it," said Miyamoto. "What you played at E3 was just the tip of the nail." Regarding Nintendo's statement at E3 that Twilight Princess would be the best Zelda in history, he said, "Yes. It's coming along quite nicely."
Considering the price of the Wii, its uniqueness and my love for the classic Zeldas, this is definitely something I'm looking forward to. I'm sure I would look like a total dork swinging around a controller wildly in front of my TV, but it might be worth it.

I think we'll all look like fools swinging that blasted controller in front of our TVs [and families]. Still, it will be fun. I used to swing my NES controller around all the time while playing. I can see a lot of these being broken.
