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


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.
