Google Maps Has a Fun Surprise for Zelda Fans Today
Google Maps isn't above having a little fun. In the past, the company converted their maps into games like Pac-Man and Pokémon. Today, they're honoring a different video game: The Legend of Zelda. Google is celebrating the release of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD—the latest game in the Zelda series, available on Wii U today—by giving their Pegman a makeover, Mashable reports.
Head over to Google Maps and you'll notice that the little yellow figure in the bottom right corner looks a little different. You'll still be able to enter street view by dragging the character to a specific spot, but he will also be donning Link's iconic green get-up. There's not much else to do with the little guy, but it's still fun to see him cosplay.
It’s dangerous to go alone. The browser version of Google Maps has a familiar fellow to help you along today. pic.twitter.com/o76kzID4Ep
