Nintendo has announced something at the E3 conference in Los Angeles that video game enthusiasts were hoping for – a New Legend of Zelda game.
Here’s what Pocket-Lint had to say about the new game:
Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword will introduce a new control mechanism that maps where you point your Wii Remote and Nunchuk on screen, getting rid of the need to map specific tasks to specific buttons.
In practice that means you have to hold the Wii Remote and Nunchuk as if it really where a sword and shield to defeat enemies and block attacks, with baddies only being able to be defeated by swiping at them in a certain way.
You can expect the game to be available sometime in 2011, but no exact date has been announced yet. Stay tuned for more E3 news!
