Reggie Fils-Aime, president of Nintendo of America, recently appeared on NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, showcasing some gameplay from Skyward Sword.  Not only that, but Jimmy gets a special gift from Nintendo (pictured above), and a special message from Nintendo greats Eiji Aonuma and Koji Kondo.  The four-and-a-half minutes of footage doesn’t show anything drastically new in terms of gameplay, but it’s worth a watch just to see Reggie and Jimmy playing it together, as well as to hear the humorous message from Aonuma and Kondo.  Hit the jump to see the video for yourself!

    I cant watch the video because I live in Mexico, could someone please write the message so I can know what it was?

  • International link:

    It would have been great if you embedded the international link in the first place.

      This was during June though. It's not the same footage in the article.

    I love how Link keeps shield-attacking when they gesture with the controller.

    Also, I will be wearing one article of green clothing every day this week in honor of Skyward Sword.

    LOL Jimmy's really going at it. So everybody got a copy of OoT3ds. But did they get the 3ds with it?

    • YellowHat

      I s'pose the idea was that they'd all have to go out and purchase one to enjoy their free gift.

  • Leendy

    OMG this seems sooooo fun!! I WANT NOVEMBER 20 NOW!!!!!!!!

    God, this week is gonna go by slow, I already KNOW it is!!! 🙁

    • Boe

    • Shaelyn

  • Merq

    Video not working outside the US 🙁
    But I found this crap quality version on YouTube:

    Jimmy's so happy 😀 I guess we all would be…

    • Unfortunately, "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" only uploads their videos onto Hulu, which is currently only available in the US, and, so far, no one has uploaded a high-quality version of the clip onto YouTube.

  • He sucks so hard <.<

  • ChainofTermina

    …….."How do I jump?"…………….he, he's kidding, right?

  • Ashmic

  • KingDodongo1

    I have a bit of a man crush on Jimmy

  • GanonLives

    Jimmy is a funny guy. I can't stop the laughter watching this. Its a good thing he was able to defeate it, would hate to see him pass out from a heart attack or something hahaha he was working hard.

  • Keimori

    Jimmy, you are one lucky man.


    Jimmy had some trouble with the Lizalfos.

    That Twilight Princess statue is beautiful!

  • Chesty Le Rue

    The Link for none Americans:

  • Vernon

    Man, he was freaking out. lol

  • Rust

    This is supposed to make people -interested- in the game and show what's so special and revolutionary about it, not promote it as a messy waggle fest.

    I'm -still- cringing. What a waste of an epic (and expensive) statue on someone who makes the game look bad. :/

    Wish Reggie went on Conan or a show that would actually -showcase- the game, instead of embarrass it. Sigh.

    • dark-triforce

      if he actually plays like that when he has it, well,hes D-E-A-D, DEAD, period, end of story.
