Nintendo launches special emoji alongside Zelda hashtags on Twitter

Good news from Twitter. Nintendo has apparently launched a new special icon alongside the #Zelda hashtag and others on the social network.

As it has done previously with other brands such as Super Smash Bros., now, if we type that hashtag or others below, we’ll see Link’s hylian shield appear next to it. Definitely a great touch in preparation for the release of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD on 16 July.

These are the tags that work:

  • #Zelda
  • #SkywardSword
  • #ゼルダの伝説
  • #スカイウォードソードHD

You can see them below (it may not show up if you don’t open it on Twitter):
