Watch Jimmy Fallon Play Skyward Sword And Mention My Review

If you haven't read my review yet, you still may have heard that I gave The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword a 10/10. Word is getting around. For example, Jimmy Fallon.

On last night's episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime showed up to let Fallon try out the latest Zelda adventure. Before doing so, Fils-Aime presented the host with a special gift, and Fallon commented about the game receiving the rare top honors from GI.

As awesome as it is to hear something that I wrote mentioned on this show, I'm actually more amused by Fallon's attempt to play the game. Fils-Aime puts him into a battle with the rather challenging Lizalfos enemies, and Fallon goes a little crazy trying to cut down these jerks. If only Reggie had been there while I was playing the game for review to constantly remind me to "get that shield up!"
