Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword's Motion Controls to set new Zelda Standard for Future Games

videogamenostalgia:

Eiji Aunoma, Zelda series producer, told Official Nintendo Magazine in the U.K. “I honestly think we cannot go back to button controls now, so I think that these controls will be used in future Zelda titles, too.”

This obviously raises some questions about how Zelda will translate onto the Wii U and if the tablet will be used for the series on the console at all. Though, this might also mean that a different control scheme might be considered when the console does get released.

None of this changes the fact that The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword has been the fastest selling Zelda title to date, and the advances to the control scheme definitely helped that progression.
