In honor of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD’s launch, Google Maps has received a temporary update. When you visit Google Maps in your web browser and look in the bottom right corner of the screen for the Pegman, you’ll find he’s been replaced by Link.


You must visit Google Maps via a browser to see this change. Link will appear on the map and in the lower left corner, once you drag him into place for a Streetview look at immediate surroundings. There are no sound effects or special animations accompanying the altered icon’s appearance.


The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD is immediately available for the Nintendo Wii U in North America and Europe. It will come to Japan on March 10, 2016. Link will also be replacing the Google Maps Pegman until March 10, 2016.
