Twilight Princess was released on both the Nintendo GameCube and Nintendo Wii. The Wii version utilized basic motion controls in which the player could shake the Wii Remote Controller in order to swing Link's Sword. Also, the player could use the infrared pointer on the Remote to aim items such as the Hero's Bow. The Wii version had a mirrored world from the GameCube version.

Skyward Sword
