Nintendo Wii: The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword Grants One Of Miyamoto’s Wishes

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for the Nintendo Wii will include a feature that Shigeru Miyamoto has wanted to see in a Zelda game for years; the ability for Link to raise his sword above his head. Miyamoto has wanted Link to be able to do this ever since The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, but only now with Wii MotionPlus is this actually possible.

“Ever since The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Miyamoto-san has said that he wants Link to raise his sword over his head.”

To which Nintendo President Satoru Iwata replied: “But you can raise the sword in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, right?”

Aonuma confirmed: “Yes. It uses the Wii MotionPlus technology, so we’ve finally done it.”

Iwata said: “After 13 years, you’ve fulfilled another wish.”



    1. If you think about the time era though, 13 years ago video games were just entering the polygon world I don’t think he saw motion control in the near future

    1. um he’s talking about being able to make link raise it over his head real time inturn making you feel like a bad ass.

  1. An interesting wish. It’s hard to believe that it took this long to finally do that.

  2. i want this to be great..i hope it delivers….does he mean with 2 hands on the sword above your head…or does it mean u can raise the sword by tilting your hands above your face…??? and DOES THE SKYLOFT PEOPLE = THE SKY PEOPLE FROM THE ACIENT CIVILIZATION ERA…( ALIENS )

  3. When I saw the title of this article, I thought “Yee haw, this game grants wishes, now I can finally have super-strength.” But it turned out to mean something different.

  4. And to make his wish even more awesome, sword beams are back! Love that they’re the product of Miyamoto’s dream.

  5. At least when I buy this game with the golden Wii MotionPlus controller, I know the controller will still be able to be used in games for the new Wii U console. I think a lot of manufacturers were hesitant to make games supporting games for MotionPlus on the Wii because not many people had it; but now it appears it may be essential for Wii U.
