"September 14, 2006 - Of course we all saw it coming when Nintendo announced its intention for Wii-mote sword fighting in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, but it's now absolutely official: Link is a righty.


In a video shown just minutes ago in Japan, the Hyrulian hero himself was previewed battling bosses, navigating the countryside, and exploring vast dungeons in his new "anti-southpaw" stance. Though there is no official breakdown of how sword control works as of yet, Link can be seen performing multiple sword swipes and varying angles, showing off what seems to be a new fully-immersive fighting style for Wii players.


We'll have more on Link's right-handedness when we go hands-on with the game tomorrow morning. Stay tuned.


Oh and Link: Welcome to the right side.
"


I am guessing this is because of the free-hand sword controlls and the majority of the people being right handed
I hope you can change this because I am left handed

Edit:I saw the videos they are talking about so I can confirm this

I always thought he was ambidexterous. And used both hands sometimes.

He was always left handed
and new news! In the Gamcube version(release date Dec.11) link is still left handed
and in the Wii version(release date:nov.19 for US and CN) he is right handed because of the large amount of people that are right handed.

This saddens me, I finally had an advantage over other players. :(

Re: The New Link is Not a lefty?

With Nintendo's primary focus being to please everyone, shouldn't whatever hand Link uses to hold a sword be an option?
