If you’ve been following the news articles on Zelda Universe (or watch a lot of late night TV), then you may have seen Reggie Fils Aime appear on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon yesterday, where he demoed The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild running on the Nintendo Switch. This wasn’t the first time Reggie appeared on The Tonight Show, however, as in 2011 Reggie appeared as a guest to show off the Nintendo Wii U as well as a little game called The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.
After a quick demo of Kid Icarus on the 3DS, they move on to the Skyward Sword demo where Jimmy begins to lose his cool with excitement. Reggie begins by doing a quick demo of the beetle and then handing over the controls to Jimmy just before going into a fight with a Stalfos. Immediately, Jimmy goes into a Wiimote swinging frenzy to the amusement of the audience and completely annihilates the Stalfos.
As with yesterday’s show, I love watching games being demoed by comedians and I think it should happen more often. I mean who wouldn’t want to see Majora’s Mask played by Jerry Seinfeld?
