Eiji Aonuma, producer of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword has revealed to The Guardian that the Zelda team had a bunch of interesting ideas that didn’t make it into the final version of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword but may used in Zelda Wii U.
“We had many ideas for new abilities in Skyward Sword. Some of them didn’t work and so we abandoned them. Some of them, though, we’re keeping. Even though we couldn’t make them work in this game, we felt they’re still good ideas. Maybe we can make them work on the Wii-U. It’s possible you might see them in another game we make in this series.”

lol, I’m kidding, this is actually kind of interesting. I just don’t see how they can translate those controls to the WiiU unless they just want us using the wiimote again :/
Well they said abilities and ideas, not controls. :)
He isn’t talking about the controls, but ideas for items, levels, stories, etc.
You can still use the wii remote on the Wii u.
Does anyone else think it would be kind of cool to play this game while wearing some sort of weight, or weighted writ band to simulate the weight of an actual sword?
good idea, I’ll have to try it out. Probably just one or two to start, then add weight when you get a better sword. Your arm would be HUGE after you finish the game
You’d also have to weight down your shield arm, or you’d start to look like a freakish human fiddlercrab.
I was thinking that too, but I am not quite sure how the sword mechanic works in the game so you might not have to move that arm very often anyway…
I KNOW SKYWARD IS GOING TO BE GREAT….BUT IT SEEM’S LIKE A TREND NOW; TO USE AN OUTSIDE ELEMENT INTO ZELDA…( WII, WII U, DS, AND NOW 3DS ) WHEN CAN WE HAVE A TRADITIONAL ZELDA GAME…WHERE YOU CAN JUST HOLD A CONTROLLER AND WALK THE LANDS OF HYRULE…YES..I SAID WALK..FOR HOURS
because pressing b to attack is not as inviting anymore, they need to make games such as zellda to fully utilise the systems capability.
I beliele that a lot of wii u games will support different ways to play the game, wii motion plus, table controller or even just the classic controller.
We’ve already had those kinds of games, and they weren’t even that long ago.
How are those “outside” elements?
They’re elements built into the system the game is played on, specifically to be used in-game.
Using the Wiimote to attack on the Wii is equivalent to using the B button on an N64 controller.
