Last June, when word emerged that Nintendo was working on another Zelda title, Miyamoto strongly implied that it would take advantage of MotionPlus but wasn’t ready to label it a requirement. Understandably so, considering the attachment had just been released.
Producer Eiji Aonuma, however, now feels that MotionPlus has made its way into enough households to confirm that its use will be made mandatory in the next Zelda. Speaking to Famitsu, Aonuma shed light on Nintendo’s reasoning behind this prerequisite, noting that the gameplay “feels so natural [with MotionPlus].” He added, “Link’s sword and the controller that you’re holding become one.”
While Aonuma is refraining to make any promises, he hopes to “show something playable” of Link’s next outing in time for E3 2010 in June.
