UK, June 15, 2009 - MotionPlus will be an integral part of the next Zelda game, with comments from Shigeru Miyamoto suggesting that the peripheral will be compulsory for Link's next adventure on the Wii.

'The goal at this point is that we would make Wii MotionPlus required in order to play Zelda', Miyamoto told Wired. 'The bigger hurdle for us is not really whether people have a Wii MotionPlus or don't have it, it's whether or not the experience is one where people will think they want to have a Wii Motion Plus in order to experience it.'

Released this Friday, MotionPlus augment's the Wii's existing remote and introduces near 1:1 control.

The new Zelda game was absent from Nintendo's press conference at this year's E3, with the only details coming in the form of a piece of concept art shown to journalists by Miyamoto.

well that is rather interesting. Hopefully they use it really well.

If you drop a PS3 right on top of a Wii, it would definitely defeat it. Not so sure about the Xbox360. - mancandy

bundle confirmed?

Now, do you think it will sell as much?

Nintendo still doomed?

This sounds like an outtake from another interview. I mean, even right there, he says that's "their goal," but he said its dependent on Motion Plus's sales.

i would guess a partial bundle, like they did with punch-out. you can buy the game with or without the add-on.

shigy did say they were thinking about bundling



Topic is incorrect. This is the same old interview where he said it would depend on the sales. Locking.
