This Zelda game features an interface designed arround the Wii MotionPlus. The sword follows the wiimote movements, realistic bow and arrow operation. This necessitates the player selecting left or right handedness for Link for the first time. The development team was a blend of current and past Zelda developers, including Shigeru Miyamoto. Graphics are a combination of style from Wind Waker and Twilight princess and have an impressionist feel inspired by Paul Cézanne's works.
This time Links comes from the heavens down to rid the world below of enemies. The origin of the Master Sword is explained. The Sword is associated with a feminine artificial being. This game is pre-Gannon and takes place before Ocarina of Time and possibly before any other official Zelda game.
