Eiji Aonuma Says No More Button Pressing for Zelda

If you're a fan of the Legend of Zelda series but dislike the motion controls, prepare for disappointment. According to Eiji Aonuma, the producer of the Legend of Zelda, it would be too difficult to go back to implementing a standard button control system for future Zelda games. His direct quote is below:

I honestly think we cannot go back to button controls now, so I think that these controls will be used in future Zelda titles, too.

Can't get more definitive than that.

Zelda's opening debut with motion controls was a bit rocky with Twilight Princess, but Skyward Sword showed how great the motion controls could be thanks to the Wii Motion Plus. So, even though the Wii U's controller looks more traditional than the Wii Remote, it doesn't mean that future Zelda games will revert to traditional controls. How this will fully integrate we cannot say, but surely E3 2012 will give us more to go on, particularly in terms of final console design.
