Aonuma talks Zelda, Wii U, and motion control
I don’t think we could go back to button control, especially after creating something that’s as natural to use as the interface that we have with the Wii Remote Plus in Skyward Sword. I think Nintendo will continue to have that focus on motion control and we’ll see that continue to evolve. And the hardware as well, in a way that will let people control things very naturally just using their own motions.
Though little is known about the game, Zelda Wii U is probably already the most anticipated game heading to the console. When questioned about the game, Aonuma showed interest in combining motion control with the tablet:
We’re looking at how we can combine that new controller with something like motion control, and perhaps use the new controller in such a way that it becomes a new item that you’re able to use to make the game feel fresh and new.
