With the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD, Google is celebrating today with a Google Maps Easter egg. As discovered by Eurogamer, the map app has been updated with an image of the famous green-clad hero Link who is seen in his traditional  garb and wielding a Master Sword and shield.

You will find Link in the lower right-hand corner of the screen. Click on him and place him anywhere to see street view images. Link will then show up in the in the mini-map. Pretty neat.

Just like this inside of the Nintendo World Store in Manhattan.

Or how about here in Las Vegas

See him? Google has always had fun with it’s references and now we can chalk up another one. Remember it’s dangerous to go alone, so take Google Maps with Link! Stay Tuned here at Gamer Assault Weekly for all your gaming needs.
