No, Motion + controls are required. The game's puzzles and battles wouldn't function at all without +

They are mandatory in Zelda: Skyward Sword. Every inch of the game uses WM+, even the aiming. It's not IR aiming like in Twilight Princess, it uses gyros this time.

Adding normal controls would make it like Metal Gear Solid: Rising. Where you firstly choose the way you want to cut and then make the cut. It would make combat frustrating and extremely slow and tedious for a Zelda game. So that's why it wouldn't work.

Looking forward to: ZeldaU & Hyrule Warriors

The October Issue of Nintendo Power has new details on Skyward Sword. Be aware there ARE plot details! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

STORY DETAILS BELOW, DO NOT HIGHLIGHT IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE SPOILED!:

  • Ghirahim seeks to revive his master. - The headmaster of the Knight Academy Link goes to is named Gaepora. - Gaepora is Zelda's father. - Gaepora laugh like this "Hoo hoo hoo", which seems Owl like. - Zelda wakes up Link one morning to show him her dress for the Bird Riders ceremony. - Noticing how lazy Link is about his flying training, Zelda pushes him off the edge of Skyloft. - During the "date" after the competition, Zelda is trying to tell something to Link she's been meaning to tell him for a long time, but is interrupted by a tornado. - Link has nightmares of a black creature that shallows Zelda. - During the attack of said tornado, Link is saved by his bird, which are called Loftwings. - Fi appears in Skyloft after the attack and Link chases her all around Skyloft to the Goddess Statue. - The Sheikhas Stones are back. - The Eldin Volcano's dungeon is NOT the Fire Temple, it's the EARTH Temple. - The bullies are named Groose, Cawlin and Stritch. Groose, the red-haired one, has a big crush on Zelda. - Other characters includes Pipit, a senior student and bird expert. And Fledge, a nice guy but kind of a wimp. - Link's sword is referred to has the Goddess Sword.

Gameplay details:

  • Night/Day transition does not occur in real-time. Link must go to bed and choose to get up at night or at day. - Monster appear during the night. Cats become aggressive. The cats are apparently the freakiest enemies you'll encounter. - The HUD is customization. Standard, Light and Pro. Standard shows the full controller overlay and button functions, Light only the buttons and Pro isalmost completely clean. - The only way to save your game is with the birds statues. They are pretty much everywhere, including mid-dungeon and right before boss rooms. - Almost everything in the environment can be interacted with.

WAT!

Twilight Princess was rated T, so, no not really. xD

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.

I already pre-paid for the special edition at GameStop, but I'm not so sure about this game. I'm still not a fan of the artstyle at all, and it looks like they're doing a lot of stuff to change the whole Zelda formula, so only time will tell, I guess.

You're not missing anything, really. NoE did a poll and people chose a cover showing a view of the bionis leg and Shulk in what is merely "to... over this artwork. Then NoE dropped the ball, by doing nothing but printing the alternative cover on the backside of the standard cover. There is no logo on the front of it, no Logo on the spine of it, nothing.

The standard cover simply looks better. Or it would, if it wasn't obscured by the USK-mark, the PEGI-mark and a "Not to be sold separately"-text in seven languages (talking about the German Special Edition here). As it stands, it's just an excellent game with a really poor alternative cover and a messed up standard cover. :p

I know this isn't the correct thread to be asking this, but I seen it was slightly active. Would you guys recommend Burn the Rope over Mr. Driller W?

Way too many pages of this thread to check if this has been revealed already, but just saw this on Nintendo's press page:

"• Zelda's father: Gaepora, Zelda's father, is the headmaster of Link's school. As such, he has knowledge of the history and legends of Skyloft. "

Gaepora... Sounds an awful lot like the name of a certain owl I used to know. Very cool detail. Can't wait to see him transformed, assuming it's not just a coincidental similarity.

I was a little iffy on if this would be a GOTY contender. But after the latest footage from IGN I'm sure it is. And I'm 90% sure it will be my personal GOTY too.

there's also some new info about link's dialog. the developers tried to expand link's personality without adding voice acting by letting you choose link's responses during cutscenes: http://www.gamesradar.com/legend-zelda-skyward-sword-hands-pr...

One thing that makes the entire "timeline" theory inconsistent is the fact that items in Twilight Princess show up in the Skyward Sword, but in non of the other Zeldas that came after it.

One example is the Clawshot. Why is the Clawshot in Skyward Sword? If Skyward Sword really is the beginning of the entire saga, then the Clawshot wouldn't have existed back then. And it wouldn't explain why the Clawshot was replaced by the Hookshot (a substantially lower-tech item), only to suddenly reappear in TP.
