While the blindness of fandom can sometimes foolishly take hold, most of us here at Push Square love a good Nintendo game. And it seems that first-party Sony developer Sucker Punch is much the same, as the Washington-based studio has hidden an Easter egg in the recently released inFAMOUS: Second Son that gives a shout out to one of the other Japanese giant's most iconic franchises.
That's right, sitting unassumingly on Eugene's bedside table is none other than the Master Sword from the long running Legend of Zelda series. While it isn't an exact replica, it's pretty obvious that the developer was paying homage to the Hero of Time. In truth, we think that this is a pretty neat little reference, and look forward to seeing one of Delsin's signature graffiti tags adorning the hallowed walls of Hyrule Castle in the next Zelda game.
You can spot the replica for yourself in the non-playable character's house, but if you can't be bothered to find it, we've kindly included a close-up picture of the legendary blade below. Is this sneaky shout-out sending a hookshot straight to your heart? Do you think that it Hyrules? Octo-rock out in the comments section below.
This is so awesome. The whole game is actually brimming with Easter eggs. If you look on the front of one of the buildings, there's a news ticker that says something like, "Sly Cooper arrested for burglary." There's also a business called 'Cooper and MacGrath' or something like that.
@get2sammyb There are also shots
/praises thrown at Prototype.
I need this game more than ever now! I'm a die-hard Zelda fan!
@KAPADO Really? I haven't seen that - do you have a picture?
-Minor Spoilers for Second Son-
The Video power's melee attack with the sword seems to also be reminiscent of the master sword. Awesome game, awesome Easter egg. I'll start my evil play through eventually.
Zelda to come to PlayStation confirmed?
In all seriousness this was unexpected.
Doesn't look like the Master Sword imo.
@Cyrso If it did we would be hearing about lawsuits regarding this.
@Big-Boss Yes, you're right, but I wouldn't go as far as saying there would be lawsuits.
It's just Sucker Punch being cautious and avoiding copyright infringement and thus make the sword a bit more distinctive.
Saw a Sly logo (same as on the collector's edition badges) graffiti on a wall near the homeless camp. Found Cole McGrath's too.
Liking it more and more as I play.
There is a childrens playground with sly bently and murray on the wall too.
I didn't even see the sword only the nice looking picture
what about Sonic Boom records..go Guile!
As a fan of both zelda and infamous this is pretty awesome
There's an insane number of sly references in the game. Someone also saw a small Knack replica in one of the early areas I believe.
If you hadn't mentioned what it was from, I'd never have known.
At the train station(s) there's a poster which says "in case of emergency, jump off train or platform. You'll live, it's a video game." Saw a screenshot on Twitter yesterday. I don't own this myself yet. Trying to reduce my pile of shame before buying anything new.
This may be a spoiler but the sword is in lots of places. Its the same glowing green sword that downs the gunships...
"hey ! listen "
This makes me wonder if there's a possibility of an inFamous/Zelda cross-over. It'd probably go along the likes of Project X Zone, ha ha ha.
If you go to the Childrens playground, there is a nice mural where you can find Sly Cooper, Bentley and Murray.
I can't remember where.. Somewhere early in the game there's a children's drawing on a wall (maybe in a bedroom) of Cole, shooting fireballs and stuff. I took a screenshot of it but can't remember where I was @ 2 save the life of me.
