Google Maps Celebrates Zelda’s 30th Anniversary

March 4, 2016

Those who visit Google Maps today in browser may notice a special “link” they can click on.

It seems that Nintendo & Google have teamed up in order to celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda franchise and have replaced the standard Google Maps man with a special Link variant to help make sure you never have to go anywhere alone, as that would be dangerous.

While the actual anniversary of the beloved franchise happened a number of weeks ago, the update seems to coincide with the release of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Pricness HD this weekend so I am sure Link may help a few people find their way to a local game store in order to pick up the title.

The exact timing on how long Link will be featured on Google Maps is unknown at this point so make sure you check him out for yourself while you have the chance.
