Left Handed Gamers Get The Shaft In Skyward Sword

Left-handed gamers planning on purchasing Skyward Sword may want to reconsider as Nintendo have now confirmed that The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will not have support for lefty time-travelling adventurers. Ironic, since Link is originally left-handed.

Lefties can of course attempt to play through the game using their less dexterous arm, but since Skyward Sword will be a MotionPlus-enabled game, it'll require a lot more precision than Twilight Princess. This is supposedly because Link is right-handed in the game and his arm will match the gestures made by the player one-for-one.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is out next month on November 20 in North America and November 18 in Europe.
