The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD will be released later this week on the Nintendo Switch, but before that time, some fans have noticed something quite funny in one of the game’s latest trailers. In particular, this common feature involves a popular internet meme that has apparently been recreated (probably by accident) within Skyward sword.
Fans began to pick up this strange event in recent days as comparison photos show a still from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword began appearing next to the popular “Woman Yelling at Cat” meme. Seeing the two side by side, it’s pretty easy to see how they match. The version from Skyward sword even sees Link standing in the background behind Zelda and looks worried, much like the original meme. After the similarity was pointed out, many began to use the image to create new memes in the same style as Zelda.

Perhaps the funniest part of the whole situation is that when Nintendo caught wind of fans talking about this, it decided to lean into the joke. Nintendo’s US Twitter account even posted a picture of Zelda pointing on its own without adding any caption to it. Immediately, the tweet was met with thousands of interactions as fans found joy in the fact that Nintendo was willing to acknowledge the conversation that took place.

As mentioned, this is the similarity between the popular meme and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is probably just the case, but I have a feeling that Nintendo appreciates that everything exploded anyway. After all, this whole situation basically works like free marketing for Skyward sword before it arrives at the Switch in just a few days.
When we talk about it, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD is specifically scheduled for release Friday, the 16th. July. Be sure to follow our coverage here on ComicBook.com in the future, as we will be sure to have a review of the game to share in a timely manner.
