1GrooseMarioFanThu 2nd Feb 2012 I really liked the idea of shield upgrades, shields taking damage, and having to shake the nunchuck to defend you at the perfect time (shield bash) in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Well, I really hope that those ideas will return in the upcoming "Zelda Wii U" or possibly "Zelda 3DS". I just hope they take the upgrade system higher in the next game. More upgrades, and more items to upgrade would be nice (I wished that you could upgrade the whip so it could be longer, so you could swing to hard-to-reach platforms and get heart pieces/ treasure). The upgrade system from SS felt sorta unfinished to me. I had an idea that you could shake the Wii U controller forward in order to shield bash. Maybe the next Zelda will be focused on (the Hylian) shield(s), just like SS was about the swords. What are your thoughts on shields and item upgrades in general in a future Zelda game?
