Zelda Skyward Sword 'best example' of Nintendo innovation

King of all Badasses Reggie Fils-Aime has been talking up The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, confidently claiming that it shows off the best example of Nintendo-brand innovation. 

"We continue to be distinctive based on the software and I think the best example of how we continue to be distinctive and innovative is going to be Legend Of Zelda Skyward Sword," boasted the beefburger boss, "because now you have a motion based game that's a traditional, core type of product."

Innovative or not, Skyward Sword is one of my most anticipated titles of the year. It's just a shame that it's the only Wii game worth looking forward to. With Last Story, Earth Seeker and Xenoblade all currently restricted to Japan, it's kind of galling to have such a lack of console titles here, even with the 3DS on the horizon

Can we get some of those other cool games localized, please!?
