    Well I've looked everywhere but the instructional video (cannot access it) in the starting area of the game and I cannot find a way to set the game to left handed. Has anyone found a way to after all will be quite the gamebreaker if there is no way to.

    Wouldn't you like to know
    I'm sure there is a left handed feature, but even if there isn't the game won't be broken. I'm left handed (and I assume you are too) but I've learned to play a lot of wii stuff right handed. I'm not spoiling this game for myself, as I've decided to wait until the 20th to play it. If you find a left handed option lemme know! I just don't know if they would both incorporating a completely reversed control scheme for us leftys :P

    Well seeing as Zelda is made by Japanese people (duh) which are almost all left handed... I would say the game has no other option to be played but I might be wrong.

    On topic: He must be asking because Link is left handed and the game should play better that way (the canon way). But I doubt it, as TP didn't have the option (as far as I know)

    An TP didn't use motion plus being a waggle sword game. So it didn't matter

    Oops I got really confused there, it was the right hand and the control scheme of the Wii being that way.

    BTW Link almost always uses his left hand to hold the sword and the right for the shield (only in ALttP, TMC and the mirrowed versions of OoT and TP he changes hands, the latter was done to better mirror the game's control scheme) and I think SS does that too, but as I said before I might be wrong.

    I thought it was confirmed to be right hand only...At any rate, if that's true, would it be possible to make a hack so that all sword movements would be reversed so lefty's (like me) COULD use the wiimote like that?

    Erm, the vast majority of the world's population is right handed. it has nothing to do with Japanese people.

    No, you're right. The only way to play it "left-handed" was to buy the Gamecube version. The Wii version of Twilight Princess was a mirrored inversion of the original.

    I think if I was lefty, I would play it with normal controls. The Wii Remote is like a broken apart standard controller. If you're used to a normal controller, I'm sure you can play Wii as a righty.

    Maybe it's not that easy. That's just how I see it.
