New Breath of the Wild Artwork From Nintendo

artwork2jan2017603_01As a happy New Years gift, Nintendo has given fans a few pieces of artwork to tide us over until it finally releases the entire game. The artwork includes three illustrations, the first being of Link from Breath of the Wild crouched on a cliff’s edge and watching a beautiful orange sunrise over Hyrule with Death Mountain in the distance, and stone ruins in the valley below. The art looks a lot like The Legend of Zelda II, in my opinion, and is a pleasant call back to an otherwise not well-liked game.
