"You mean I have to find an extra $20 to play this? ARGH!"

Nintendo game design legend Shigeru Miyamoto has revealed that the new Wii Zelda - which was announced at this year's E3 - is being built with the intention of exploiting the newly-released Wii MotionPlus accessory.

For those of you that don't know, MotionPlus bolts onto the base of the Wii Remote and offers a more accurate detection of movement.

Speaking to Wired, Miyamoto said:

The goal at this point is that we would make Wii MotionPlus required in order to play Zelda. he bigger hurdle for us is not really whether people have a Wii MotionPlus or don't have it, it's whether or not the experience is one where people will think they want to have a Wii MotionPlus in order to experience it.

He also added that the game is due out next year, but warned that it might take a little longer to complete.
