Next Legend of Zelda may have flying, will use MotionPlus

Next Legend of Zelda may have flying, will use MotionPlus photo



Link has used plenty of forms of transportation through his games, from horseback to boats to trains, but his feet have never really left the ground (unless you count magic owl teleportation or giant leaf hang gliding). That may change in the next Legend of Zelda as Eiji Aonuma hints at Link being able to take flight somehow. Where did the idea come from? Much like Miyamoto, Aaonuma is taking ideas from his life at home.

"I have an eight-year-old son myself at home," he said in a recent interview, "and quite recently he started playing The Phantom Hourglass for DS, because when the software first hit the market he was too young. When he started playing with the boat, I told him: 'In the next Zelda, you are going to be able to ride on the train.' He answered: 'OK, Dad, first boat, and then train? Surely next time, Link is going to fly in the sky ... '"

"I just don't know. If many people make many speculations ... some of them might be correct. Right now, I have to refrain from commenting on anything," he concluded, while grinning.

He then went on to spill a few more beans as he praised the Wii MotionPlus controls that are being implemented into the game. "I believe that we will be able to offer some great innovations in the new Legend of Zelda. Of course I have to refrain from giving any details, but we are contemplating altering the way the game progresses in comparison with all the past Legend of Zelda franchises," he said after detailing how well the MotionPlus works for the game.

Want. Now.
