The missing link

I know I’m a bit late on this one, but in my defense the only Zelda game I ever played was Ocarina of Time. However, I can’t believe that they made Link right handed for the Wii version of the game! Miyamoto said:

Although Link is [traditionally] left-handed, at E3 we noticed people seemed to be using the right Wii controller to swing his sword. That’s why we decided to make Link right-handed.

As a lefty I find this outrageous! Of course the funny thing is not that they chose to change it because most people are right handed, but that on the message boards I checked out there was always at least one person who said something like, “For the lefties, it isn’t that hard to hold the Wiimote in your right hand.” OK, let’s assume that is true. Then why wouldn’t it be just as easy for right handed people to use the Wiimote in your left??? Funny how that doesn’t seem to get mentioned…

Lefties of the world unite!
