    So I've been wondering, will those of us who were blessed enough to become lefthanded :wtf: be hindered at all by the wiimote? I'm just wondering if there will be a certain amount of compensation I'll have to learn by playing lefthanded. Thoughts?

    thats about all i can contribute though

    Yeah, I heard that to...thats what got me wondering. I imagine some moves I'd make with the remote might not hit exactly where expected being left handed. Maybe I'm wrong though...lets hope.

    It's just like a video game controller. Not much difference.

    I rember when i was reading about the whole right handed zelda thing that they said that even left handed people would hold the wiimote in the right and nunchuck in the left. Don't have a source on this though

    The wiimote/nunchuk combination is actually the first console controller to be both right and left hand friendly.

    So, if you are left handed, you'll just hold the wiimote in the left hand and nunchuk in the right.

    There IS a difference between left handed control and right handed control with the wii-mote. Granted, it's better than previous control schemes for other systems, but now that lefties like myself have gotten used to them, this will cause us to change a couple of things with the Wii:

    1) Like people here said, Link will be right handed, so motions with the wiimote in the left hand will not be identical to what appears on screen. And for those of you who say "switch hands". It's not that easy. The way the controller is designed, it is BEST to have the wii-mote in your dominant, steady hand. For lefties, that would obviously be the left hand.

    2) ALL previous controllers hand the left analog stick be the device that moves your character around. Everyone has grown used to that. But now, for lefties, if we are holding the wii-mote in the left hand, we have to hold the nunchuck with the analog stick in the RIGHT hand! This is totally different than we've had to do before.

    I'm not suggesting that you not buy the Wii because of this, but for lefties, it will not be exactly the same. It will just take some getting used to after all these years.

    If you're used to using the analogue stick with your left hand, then hold the nunchuk in your left-hand.

    Even if Link holds the sword in his right-hand, you can still make the same moves with your left hand. You can use he bow fine aswell. I've seen people play FPS' on the PC with the gun model in the left hand (Counter-Strike), even though they're right-handed. The game will work fine, it will just look slightly weird. IMO, this is easier to get used to than switching hands.

    There should be an option in the games like The Legend of Zelda the Twillight Princess or Red Steel in wich you can choose between right handed and left handed.
    I dont really care because I am right handed.

    @OP: You can use both hands. You just switch it and put the Wiimote on your left and nunchuck on your right. Nothing so special.
