Reason why. It's called paying attention to details. Link is pre-dominantly left handed. They just made the Wii version as right-handed because they realized that more people are right handed than they are left handed. Thus would swing their sword with their right hand. That being so they changed the layout of the world to keep up on details.Originally Posted by vi3tmix
It would have been nice for them to provide an option on the Wii but they didn't. I consider that the only games real fault.
In a link to the past link holds the sword with his left hand EXCEPT when he's facing a certain way in certain areas. They say he switches hands when facing that direction because of a Superstition. I just think that Nintendo is brilliant in keeping minor details intact like that. They really define their characters.
