Twilight Princess HD logo

So Twilight Princess HD just came out today. For those of you who want a little bit more Link in your life, check out Google Maps if you have not already. When you go into the map there is a slightly different option for street view. A little link sprite will act as your cursor during street view. Its a cute little treat for fans of the series and is worth spending a couple minutes to get a laugh out of it. Nintendo’s official word on it is in the email below:

In the spirit of adventure and exploration, Google Maps is offering some hidden surprises that any legendary adventurer will love. Just log in to the browser version of Google Maps and a familiar hero will guide you through all your journeys through perilous dungeons. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD also launches today exclusively for Wii U. If you grow weary of your trials in the real world you can escape to the Twilight Realm with the Wolf Link amiibo by your side.
Have fun exploring!
