The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Wii U boxart shows some confusing controller options

As far as we know, there is no way to play Breath of the Wild with just a single Wiimote. For that matter, we don't believe it works with Wiimote/Nunchuk either. Something funky is up with this box!

No Wii Balance Board or Wii Wheel support = no buy.

Some simple 2P assist mode in a future update?

Waggle is back, baby!

I am forced to get the Wii U version first this week so if there is a Skyward Sword control scheme in there somewhere, I will be overjoyed.

That's clearly a mistake. Seems like a big one to let through though.

If it works with Wiimote and Nunchuck, even with no motion control, I'll be playing it that way!

How im the world could a Wiimote + a Classic Controller Pro work?
Clearly, a big mistake.

How in the world could it not work?...btw, upvote was a mistake. lol

I'm guessing because the sticks can't be clicked in, one less input control.

What is the point of holding two different controllers and one of them being fully equipped to play the game only to be used with a single hand? If you wanted to use the Wiimote then why the hell would you want to use a Pro controller just for the movement and not use the Nunchuck?

This will never work. And my upvote for the original poster is definitely intended!

I think the same thing is confusing both of you, a Wiimote is required to use a Classic Controller. The icon isn't suggesting that you hold both at once.

Um, no. Sorry! None of the other games use this combination to say that you use the classic controller and the WiiMote to power it up. This is the first time this icon is being used like that.

@Arod79 : It's a single player game. So you tell me ;)

As Sirprimalform mentioned, you don't hold both. The wii remote is only used for power/wireless in this case. I admit I wasn't even thinking of the clickable sticks but I forget, is that really needed? So the only real mystery is the icon showing wii remote only, which is impossible.

How would you use a Classic Controller (pro or otherwise) without a Wiimote? That marking is one of the ones that makes sense, it's the solo Wiimote that is the most confusing (followed by the Wiimote and Nunchuk one).

No Wii Balance Board or Wii Wheel support = no buy.

Giving me some good good deja vu to when the GameCube version of Twilight Princess had a screenshot on the back cover that featured the magic meter, which of course wasn't in the game.

Multiplatform releases done f*cked up Zelda boxes, bottom line cut and dry.
