The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD is out this week, and it would appear that someone at Google is a bit of a fan, as hero Link is making a guest appearance in Google Maps.

Open up Google Maps in your browser and hover your mouse pointer over the little "Street View" character in the bottom-right of the screen - it's Link! You can now have hours of fun dragging him around the map, pretending that he's on some epic quest near your home or workplace.

We've had no official word on why this is happening, but the re-release of Twilight Princess would seem like the most likely reason.

Our good friends over at Family Gamer TV have put together a video showing it off:
