Skyward Sword Loftwing plumes styled after riders

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!
