‘Skyward Sword’ Trailer Hides Beautiful Nostalgia

Nintendo has no doubt been tirelessly crunching away to complete The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Swordbut we haven’t heard much since the Game Developer’s Conference in the first week of March, where Nintendo released the most recent trailer.  It took 2 months, though, to find out that the trailer seems to be hiding one hell of an Easter egg.

GDC 2011 Trailer

In a random perusal of that GDC trailer while toying with an app on his iPod Touch, FPawesome discovered something amazingly familiar hidden within the notes of the seemingly new orchestral score of Link’s next adventure.  If you listen to the score in reverse, you can hear the now famous “Zelda’s Lullaby” [<^> <^>] from Ocarina of Time, clear as day!

I would be hard-pressed to think that this is some coincidence (see Gibbs’ Rule #39), but it remains to be seen if this “Zelda reversal” is somehow tied to the game’s story or if this is simply a thematic homage in Skyward Sword‘s compositions.

No doubt, we’ll hear more about this next installment of the franchise at E3 next month.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is currently slated for release sometime this year on the Nintendo Wii.
