Just days after it was revealed that the Wii version of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess would not be compatible with GameCube controllers, Nintendo guru Shigeru Miyamoto has declared that the Wii controller can be used for slashing Link's sword about in the game.
Shiggy's mini-revelation was revealed in an interview with Japanese magazine Nintendo Dream, and means that the controls in the final build of Twilight Princess should differ somewhat from those seen at E3 in May, where the B button on the Wii-mote conducted swordplay. Meanwhile, firing arrows is now carried out with the newly-free B button, as opposed to the D-pad.
In other news, it turns out that Miyamoto is considering giving certain GameCube titles a Wii make-over. "I'm thinking I can remake some of my GameCube games for Wii, making use of the Wii-mote," said the Shigster, dollar signs spinning in his eyes. "Of course, you can wander into a second hand shop and buy a lot of these games still, so I don't think we can release these games at full price. Since a lot of the development cost has already been accounted for, we'll be able to release these at a much more affordable price."
More as we get it, folks.
