October is finally upon us, and what does that mean? Changing seasons, pumpkins, candy, ZU’s awesome Halloween-themed layout… and a new poll!

Last month, we asked for your opinion on the rumors that Skyward Sword will ship with Wii MotionPlus. After 2,108 votes, the results are in!

Do you think Skyward Sword will ship with MotionPlus?

1st (74%, 1561 votes) Yes
2nd (26%, 547 votes) No

With such a wide margin between choices, it looks like most of you believe – or hope – that the upcoming title will in fact ship with MotionPlus, which will increase the interactivity of the game by leaps and bounds, making 1:1 sword control a reality.

This month, we’re shifting our poll’s attention from the newest console Zelda title to Nintendo’s latest handheld system. Scroll down that pretty little sidebar to your right, and let us know if you plan on buying a 3DS!

  • I plan on buying it when I get the money for both the 3DS and OoT remake. But first I'm aiming skyhigh for Skyward Sword!

  • Hero of Winds

    I just need another $164! CHRISTMAS MONEY I'M COUNTING ON YOU!

  • Scrivs

    it's hard to say. At around $300, I'm not sure if a handheld gaming system is worth it. However, I haven't seen the 3D in person, and if it's really as good as they say it is, that might sway my opinion. Mostly though I just want OoT 3D. 😀

  • Uncle Pennybags

    Release date of February 2011?

    You couldn't "reel in" a goldfish with that kind of a sluggish delay.

    Nintendo profit estimates sank this week – You don't have to be a genius to figure out that if you can't be ready by the holiday season, you won't be able to compete.

  • Shadowknight1

    Okay everyone still complaining about the $300 price tag, read this carefully: THAT IS THE PRICE IN JAPAN!!! AS many many many have said, it will very likely be much cheaper here in the US and elsewhere.

    As for the Motion Plus…I voted yes, but that was before the existence of the Wii Remote Plus was confirmed. If THAT is out by the time Skyward Sword is, I won't ever buy the Motion Plus peripheral.

    • Pietro

      I don't believe it will be 300 it will most likely be 250, that is still too much.

  • Gamma

    I'll be preordering, hopefully. I also believe that the 3DS will have a lower price in the US. I'm estimating around $230-$260.

  • ChainofTermina

    sorry, but I don't think there are enough options. I do plan on getting it, eventually. but I have no idea how long it will take for me to get enough money. so, I would pick an option that said "Yes, but not right away. eventually"

  • X x7

    I need to sell my DSi XL if I want a 3DS… That DSi XL was such a waste of money too. Now, I can get even more money, and then I can buy a 3DS which is WAY better! $250 is currently what the price is most likely to be for the US release, so I need about 50 more bucks.

  • Ashmic

    i rather buy a new wii and Skyward sword if I was going to for the 300 for the 3DS, way to expensive for a handheld, that hurts my eyes as well

  • Joko tree

    I hope you can buy it with or without motion plus because some people already have it.

  • Goro

    Why would Skyward Sword be bundled with Motion Plus? It will probably be bundled with a Wii Remote Plus.

  • Christian

    Actually Nintendo revealed the "new" wiimote and it now has wii motion plus bult in. It's also the same size as the standard wii mote. Just has the plus built in. So no I do not think they will make it manditory. I do believe they will have a bundle for people with the old version of the controller

  • Verius

    I'm definitely buying the 3DS and possibly 1-2 games. Xmas money and also Chinese New Year money should cover for 1 game and some of the hardware costs.

  • Linksoer

    Since Nintendo just recently announced their ''Wii Remote Plus'' I think Skyward Sword will ship in with that. I mean the new wiimote looks exactly like the regular wiimote but with motion plus technology already integraded, so its better =3
