Gaming Follow Friday #5 - The Legend of Zelda
- The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword
Welcome to our regular Gaming Follow Friday feature, in which we root through the sewage of inactivity and fight off the mutated Gerbils in order to bring you some of the best new Twitter accounts to follow. This week it's related to The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, which is really good by the way, but if you missed it we covered the likes of Skyrim, Assassin's Creed, and those two war games, Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3, in previous weeks.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. It's been a while coming but it's finally time to grab that iconic green garb and liberate the world of Hyrule once again. Skyward Sword incorporates Wii MotionPlus and as such will likely cause a gulf in opinion. Examine Eurogamer's glowing 10 versus Gamespot's huff filled 7.5 and you know this game will be an interesting one to follow opinions on.
Being a game of Eastern origin there aren't a huge amount of English-speaking developer accounts, but what there is on Twitter is an army of eager fans. From the fan site pages to a huge range of character accounts, who we're hoping become more energetic after the release of the new game, there should be plenty here to entertain you if you need a giggle while trying to solve a tough puzzle or two.
