Like sword fighting for real

Zelda fans out there, and lord knows there are a lot of them about, will be delighted to know that mastermind and general Nintendo legend Shigeru Miyamoto has said that the next installment in the RPG series will make full use of the Wii MotionPlus peripheral, making you feel like you’re fighting with an actual sword in your hand. Nice, if you’re a geek. Which we are. Therefore, hooray!

‘We're using MotionPlus to make you feel much more like you're actually fighting while holding a sword in your hand,’ said Miyamoto, before pointing out that it would also help with the targeting system, which was a bit shonky last time out (although he doesn’t say how, exactly).

‘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.’
