Google Maps gets a visit from Legend of Zelda's Link on the web

Google Maps is getting a nice Easter egg for the next few days on the web. The familiar peg icon that's meant to move a user into Street View has been replaced with Link from Nintendo's Legend of Zelda game series.

Link's appearance in Google Maps is promoting the release of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD remake on Nintendo's Wii U console. Link even turns around when you move the street view camera 360 degrees. The official Japanese language Zelda Twitter account says that Link will stick around Google Maps for the next five days.
