There are two potential reasons for these complaints, the second likely more common than the first. The less common, though more viable source of disappointment is from the community of left-handed gamers who will have to adapt (as is a reoccurring problem) to the right-hand oriented controls. This is a reasonable cause for distress. However, the majority of causes for such an outpouring is likely the reason you posted this topic- those who simply complain due to it not being the usual canon. This is likely magnified, as SS seems to be one of, if not the, earliest games in the not yet disclosed Zelda timeline. Either way, (and admit to grumbling as well) its a simple matter of old fans of the series missing an apparent Zelda staple. Still, what could Nintendo have done? Sacrifice motion control for a simple detail? Yes, it may seem a trivial matter, but can we really be blamed? It's along the same lines of us, myself included, who don't consider TP fof the Wii as the official canon, due to the mirrored graphics.You may finnd that the complaints will ease as the game comes nearer to launch. Either way, as long as long-time Zelda fans exist, so will such complaints. Just my two Rupees.
