    Lefthanded?

    Im getting Zelda in a few days(hopeful) and was just reading about how the map is mirrored due to most gamers being right handed. I'm left handed so was wondering if there is a left handed option and if not does it matter?

    Thanks

    I would not say it matters too much in the sense of gameplay, although it might feel a bit weird considering you'll be looking at him holding his sword in his right hand and his shield with his left, while you are doing the opposite. I don't believe there is such an option to switch Link's handedness, although the closest thing would be to play the GameCube version, which has Link wielding his sword with his left, and shield with his right.
    Hope that helped.

    Hmm dam that sucks. I thought that might be the case. Oh well I guess I can alwayss try and swap.

    also, just wondering. I get why they changed him to right handed but i dont really understand the need to reverse the map. I mean, it wouldn't make that much of a difference would it?

    Another quick thing to add while on the subject of sword-handling....why is it the in Wind-Waker Link is left-handed, Twilight Princess (GameCube version) Link is left-handedand, yet in Twilight Princess (Wii Version) he's right handed? I know it doesn't matter but I always pondered...

    Peace everyone.

    he is left-handed in all zelda games cause shiggy perfers his left-hand(even though he is ambidextuous(sp?))

    but people like to think the wiimote is a sword and nunchuck is sheild and most people are rright-handed and want to hold the 'sword; in their right hand


    the mario that's roomed with mush
    my wii is not connected to the internet, so i can't play brawl online for a bit....please do not spam inbox with friend code requests

    You will probably Be more comfortable using the normal setup. Yes it is mirrored and Link is normally left handed.
    Im left handed to, and Since you use the analog stick, it feels right, becuase normally you use analog stick with you left thumb, so it feels right. Idk im left handed but one handed i would hold a sword with my right hand anyways..

    What if, on a crowded street, you look up and see something appear that should not, given what we know, be there. You either shake your head and dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than we think. Perhaps it really is a doorway to another place. If you choose to go inside you may find many unexpected things."-Miyamoto
