    I'll be more impressed if they give you the option to make Link left handed again.

    Just watched it on Youtube.

    It's kind of early to tell, but this looks like it will be my personal favorite Zelda game.

    I was more hyped before, somehow.

    I was never hyped; I dislike the non-portable Zelda series, save OoT...

    ...and where the hell is Ganondorf?

    Yeah, also an option to change Link's hair color or something else more pointless than a left handed Link.
    Maybe make it so I can play with the Wii Zapper.


    Besides that:
    Game looks great! Can't wait to play this one.

    Although for a game with an emphasis on the whole "1:1 motion" thing the Wii Motion Plus supports, I'm sure people may want a more authentic sword swinging experience.

    You know, if you're a highly trained sword and shield user that just so happens to swing lefty and block righty.

    Well the thing is, one of Link's trademarks is that he's left handed, though it's only pointed out in the Oracle of Season manga AFAIK.

    About bloody time you can play as Adult link with no little link, transforming link, cartoon link, or some talking hat crap. Finally a awesome looking Link all about the puzzles and gameplay. Hope the music is just as good as the graphics. Time to buy a Revolution er Wii.

    Edit: I stand corrected, "Using the sword to travel back and forth between the two worlds, the mystery of why they became separated is gradually revealed to Link." - Cool, snes light and dark worlds


    "The Skyward Sword will turn into the Master Sword at some point in the game, and while giving Link advice, it will assume the form of the female figure" -of course there's a transforming talking something.

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    I will buy a USED motion plus from the pawn since wii is going to be dead soon. I am not going to waste my money for a brand new motion plus. This game is awesome, why ? I am fan of zelda games. [​IMG]

    I got two for $20 each a while ago and they're worth it for Red Steel 2 at least and Wii Sports Resort can be some fun with friends. But odds are this and Red Steel 2 will be the "killer apps" for the WM+, definitely worth owning.

    Because Link is "The Left-Handed Hero".

    It'd only be good for left-handed people, or people that just like holding the sword in their left hand. People looking for an "authentic" Zelda game by adding a left-handed option just so you can see a left-handed Link is a stupid comment, because it being their character, they can change anything about him. Yes, I get it, it was his staple for quite a while, but now it's changed, because Nintendo made the choice to change their character.

    Obviously he's not anymore. He is a character created by Nintendo, and it's their choice on how he looks, acts, sounds, moves, everything. So if they want him to be right-handed, then that means he is right-handed now. Rage over something that actually hurts the game. Not something that doesn't matter.
