Nintendo Wii: Nintendo President Says Wii MotionPlus Is Like An Unruly Horse!

During the latest edition of Iwata Asks Nintendo president Satoru Iwata described Wii MotionPlus as an unruly horse that just couldn’t be tamed. Thankfully they have tamed it and apparently it works surprisingly well with The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

“Wii MotionPlus is an incredibly sharp device, but a little distinctive. It’s like an unruly horse.”

To which Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma replied: “Yes, exactly. No matter what we did, we couldn’t tame it. Then Wii Sports Resort came out as the first game for Wii MotionPlus.”

  1. It wasn’t very tamed when I played Skyward Sword, did a stab in real life and instead in the game it did a vertical slash downwards and then a stab…

    1. They said something about working out the kinks, it all depends on how long ago you played it. Because a lot of people said it worked smoothly with the motion plus.

  2. YEAA AND PS MOVE IS SOOO MUCH MORE ACCURATE WITH THE LITTLE DISCO BALL AND THE RAW POWER AND TECH THAT SONY ALWAYS PUTS IN. IT’S SOOO AMAZING AND BETTER THAN OLD CRAPPY WII WAGGLE”

    1. Which Wii game has this waggle thing cause every Wii game I’ve played since release hasn’t had anything like that? If you remember the name let me know, it sounds fun.

    2. Lol you guys do know I’m being sarcastic right……acting as a sony fanboy jeez. I even said disco ball

  3. You know how in WiiSports you can simply do a lazy flick of the Wiimote to swing, while sitting back in a lazy-boy with ya feet up… Do ya rekon SS will be like that or more reliant on full-motion swings? I hope it’s not strictly the later, I hated Red Steel 2.

      1. Why are you swearing at me for not liking a particular game? That’s not very nice, or fair. RS2 was cool, I just didn’t like the agressive controls, mainly because it became to much of a chore.
        I only wanted to ask people what they thought SS would control like. I’m sorry if I offended your own tastes.
        I haven’t read much on SS so I was wondering if anybody had heard about how specific you needed to be with the sword swings. I just hope I can flick the Wiimote in the directions instead of having to stand up and fully swing it.

    1. It more like the couldn’t access its full intended power, proof of this is the lack of games that support it and the fact that they really didn’t take the time to sit down and try to find a way to “tame” its power.

    1. Right but the thing came out more than a year and a half ago. You’d think that more games would have the feature especially since Wii Sport Resort used it pretty well.
