Nintendo Kicks Off 2017 with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Art and a Nifty Throwback

on January 2, 2017 12:04 PM

With 2017 having officially begun, Nintendo fans are now closer than ever to the long-awaited Nintendo Switch and the upcoming The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and to celebrate a new piece of artwork has link (and fans) staring into the horizon to look at what lies ahead.

Nintendo released a new piece of artwork to celebrate the new year and the upcoming release of Breath of the Wild, which is anticipated to release this year sometime during or after the launch of the Nintendo Switch, as well as on the Wii U.

The artwork, showing Link looking over a gorgeous mountain vista, also happens to be a cheeky nod to artwork that was produced for the release of the original The Legend of Zelda, making for a nice throwback to the series since its beginnings in 1986.
