Skyward Sword Loftwing plumes styled after riders

JordanMarch 27th, 2013 by Jordan

In preparation for Easter Sunday, Nintendo of America has been running a series of Nintendo Easter Eggs on their Twitter and Facebook pages. These have included everything from nifty control options in Nintendo Land to cool design choices. A recent feature about Skyward Sword was one of the latter.

While a number of Skyward Sword‘s quirks and references were caught by fans almost immediately out of the gate, this specific design piece was actually pretty under the radar. In case you missed it before, jump in to see Nintendo’s Tweet on the subject!

 

You know, somehow I never actually noticed this. Despite how incredibly iconic Groose’s pompadour has already become, there has not been too much talk about his Loftwing’s matching ‘do. The next time I play Skyward Sword I will have to keep an eye out for this. Still, this is not really an “Easter Egg” in the actual definition of the term…

Either way, how do you like this clever little design aspect the developers threw in? Did you notice this when playing Skyward Sword? Which Loftwing’s feather-do is your favorite? Shout out in the comments and let us know!

    I don’t quite see it for Link and Zelda though….hmm…

    • RubyDragonCat

      Or Pipit.

  • JuicieJ

    I didn’t notice this right away, but I did eventually. Nintendo really put a lot of detail into Skyward Sword, man.

    • Hylia Watson

      Did you see all the concept art on Ghirahim and Fi? Heck yeah they did. o_o

      • JuicieJ

        I meant they put a lot of thought and effort into the game, even with the little things.

  • captainrobyn

    I didn’t notice it while playing the game, but I read it a few weeks ago in Hyrule Historia!

  • Linkykins

    I noticed at the end of the game! At the end when everyone is down on the surface, and Groose and his buddies were standing near their loftwings…

  • EzioCRossfire

    I noticed it pretty quickly by looking at Grooses.
    I want a Loftwing

    • GOROHUG!!!!!!!!!!

      Don’t we all?

      • Link Fanatic

        I want Epona….

  • http://medlismessages.blogspot.com/ Heroine of Time

    I noticed in Hyrule Historia, where they had a picture of the Loftwings lined up next to their riders. I completely missed it during the game though, haha. It’s pretty cool.

    • Hylia Watson

      I know! I was reading Hyrule Historia today and that happened to me! XD

  • Tirnel

    I did notice groose’s bird had the same hair, but i did not overthink it

  • Kyle Laitinen

    IT WAS LITERALLY THE MOST OBVIOUS THING

  • Emma Mix

    heh heh… I’ve known this for like five months… Does that mean I’m epic? *derp*

  • Blackbaldrik

    Quite literally the very first thing I noticed about Groose’s Loftwing.

  • punkinoodle

    My younger brother had to point it out to me…

  • oozy the wolf

    unexpected easter egg

  • James Kensel

    Uh… dude. Remember the girl’s hurt loftwing? Did ya happen to notice the defined ponytails on its head?!

  • Omega

    I noticed when Orielle’s loftwing was on the ground having some kind asthma, then I paid attention to it and saw it in others as well, Loftwings have fur, for the people who were not fortunate enough to get hyrule historia

    • baileygirl99

      I was surprised when I read about that. And wouldn’t the fur make it harder for the loftwings to fly?

      • http://www.triforcetalk9.blogspot.com/ Linkfan99

        Yeah, especially because birds have feathers and not fur…. but loftwings are S P E S H U L L L L

        XD

  • baileygirl99

    I noticed that the second time I saw Groose’s lofting. I was like “awww! The bird has a pompadour too!”
