The hero of the Legend of Zelda is left handed, just like Nintendo's top-designer Shigeru Miyamoto and me, right? Not in the new Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.
In theory, Link has been turned right-handed because he is being controlled with the Wii Remote, a device many gamers hold in their right hand. Even I do that.
Let us nonetheless lament this insidious change made by the Wii.
Link as a righty on the Wii
Lefty on the GameCube
Lefty on the Nintendo 64
Lefty on the SNES
Lefty on the NES
Lefty on the DS
Way to oppress my people, Nintendo.
