New console's controller will work with GameCube title
According to an interview with legendary game designer Shigeru Miyamoto posted on the Nintendo of Europe website, the latest iteration in the hugely successful Zelda series will feature enhanced elements exclusive to the Revolution console.
NOE caught up with Miyamoto in Paris following the game creator's recent knighthood and it was during this interview that an update on the much delayed title - for many, the last remaining reason to keep hold of the original GameCube console - was revealed.
"I would say that we are progressing well with completing it," Miyamoto stated, adding: "And one of the most important features is that, because Revolution can run GameCube software, when you play Twilight Princess on Revolution you can take advantage of the Revolution controller."
Nintendo had previously quashed rumours that the game would no longer be a GameCube exclusive, but it seems the extended development time has allowed the company to implement additional features and functionality that will take advantage of the innovative controller, giving fans of the game an added incentive to upgrade to the new machine.
Little more has been revealed about exactly how this will be implemented into the gameplay, although it is suggested that players will be able to utilise the motion-sensitive controller to fire arrows from a bow, or unleash a boomerang attack on enemies.
Miyamoto has stated that full details on the Revolution console will be revealed at the forthcoming E3 expo in May, and it's likely that additional information on the progress of Zelda: Twilight Princess - one of Nintendo's flagship franchises - and its enhanced features for the new machine will be revealed at that time.
