When a game gets released there is normally a hype around, helped only by the extra content and materials that are released alongside it. From short videos or web series to limited edition events or releases, but rarely do you see external companies get involved but that’s what’s happened as Google has made it so you can explore Google Maps as Link, the brave adventurer.
The little hero is here to celebrate the release of the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD on the Wii U in Europe and North America today. If playing as the young adventurer isn’t enough for you, then you can now drag the little adventurer anywhere in the world on Google Maps.
As a person who grew up saving the kingdom of Hyrule, fighting off Mario and stopping the moon from destroying the clock tower, being able to do little things like drag Link over the ocean is strangely rewarding.
You will be able to explore with Link till the 10th, the day the game will release in Japan, so for five days feel free to go on adventures but don’t forget to pick up your copy of the game to experience the real adventure.
