Link Controls

One of the most important additions to Nintendo’s latest Zelda title, Skyward Sword, is the addition of MotionPlus controls. That means that Link’s sword and items, for the first time in Zelda history, respond to the player’s movements in perfect synchronization. Naturally, with such sophisticated technology comes an entirely new way of playing our favorite franchise.

The new controls might seem simple on the surface, but there’s a whole lot that can be done with them – which is why our newest staff member, Adam Debes, has compiled an entire guide to MotionPlus Zelda-playing in our Skyward Sword section.

You can find information about Link’s new moves, as well as how to perform them, such as the ridiculously awesome-looking Vertical Spin Slash. Check out the page here – and stay tuned for more updates in the near future (specifically pictures for this guide)!
