The lights are on
Nintendo kicked off its E3 2010 press conference with the first showing of a brand new Zelda title for the Wii, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Shigeru Miyamoto was on hand to demonstrate the game, which uses motion control and the Wii Motion Plus peripheral for a control scheme that emulates hold a real sword and shield. Sword swinging and other motions in the game are performed with minimal button presses. At the time of this writing, no release date has been announced, but it will hit the Wii sometime in 2011.
