Zelda: Skyward Sword is looking mighty fabulous

The more screenshots I see of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, the more I realize that this game is truly fabulous, if you know what I mean! See for yourself:

The boss baddie, Demon Lord Ghirahim, has impeccable taste in both makeup and earrings
See what Zelda has to say about that!

Now I don’t know much about Zelda or even Skyward Sword, really, but I’m very pleased by the graphical style of the game and those awesome birds everyone seems to be riding around, so if I had a Wii I’d probably purchase the game eventually. It’ll be interesting to see how the game is recieved when it comes out–from my understanding there’s a fair bit of back-and-forth already about whether it’s shaping up well or just trying to stand up against Ocarina of Time (which, by the way, I still haven’t played…).

In the process of writing the post I stopped by the Zelda Wiki and found out an interesting tidbit about Ghirahim… Apparently one of his ears is pointed and the other is round? I’ve only ever seen the pointed ear so I guess I couldn’t say for sure, but I bet someone’s done their homework. The more you know!

Also, in fairly related news, there’s a great interview with Yoshinori Ono on EGMNow regarding Posion (you may remember a certain post I made regarding her a while back). It’s definitely worth a read! The bottom line is that Capcom officially would like to stay ambiguous as to whether or not she a woman or a transgendered man and let the fans decide how they’d like to interpret her gender.

Ono said it, so case closed, right? What are your thoughts on the whole issue? How about the Zelda, are you excited for the game’s release, or could you care less?

About Anne Lee

Also known as apricotsushi. Anne can be written with the kanji for apricot (杏), and sushi was the most quintessentially Japanese thing I could think of when I was 13, resulting in my goofy, albeit memorable, nickname.
