Nintendo Live is taking place this weekend in Tokyo, and it seems a statue based on Link in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is present.

It gives fans perhaps their best look yet at Link's new character model and the mysterious new changes to one of his arms. This shot was taken at a promotional section of Nintendo Live, simply featuring a banner and the Link statue (via Game Watch).

Nintendo's most recent update about the new Legend of Zelda game was delivered last month during a Direct presentation. During the broadcast, it revealed the official title of the game and also locked in the release date of 12th May 2023.

Here's a bit about what players can expect, straight from the PR:

"The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom: In addition to the vast lands of Hyrule, the latest entry in the storied Legend of Zelda series will take you up into the skies and an expanded world that goes beyond that! Look forward to Link’s massive adventure starting again when The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, drops for Nintendo Switch on May 12, 2023."
