Nintendo's Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD launches later this week for the Wii U, but Nintendo doesn't want you to forget about that other Wii U Zelda game coming later this year.
That's why it's included a few Zelda Wii U Easter eggs in its remastering of the Wii and Gamecube classic. YouTube channel Nintendo Life received a copy of Twilight Princess HD early, and while playing, discovered what should be a few familiar sights to any Legend of Zelda fan.
Inside Chudley's Fine Goods and Fancy Trinkets Emporium in Castle Town are a number of paintings that depict screen shots from our, so far, incredibly brief looks at Legend of Zelda Wii U. One large painting shows Link on Epona in the middle of a lush green field (as seen above), while another shows the grove where Link will soon battle one of the upcoming game's new foes with a bow and arrow. Picture frames displayed on the shop counter display the same images but smaller.
Both these images come from already-released teaser trailers for Nintendo's upcoming game. Sadly, no new images are revealed in the paintings, meaning fans will still have to wait for new glimpses at Nintendo's next big adventure. You can check out the Easter eggs in a video from Nintendo Life below.
Legend of Zelda Wii U is scheduled to release in 2016, though Nintendo has yet to issue a definitive release date for the title. Recent rumors state that the game may also arrive on Nintendo's new console, the NX, as well. So far, the NX and its release date are a complete mystery, but having the new Legend of Zelda game to serve as a launch title for the console would certainly make sense.
It also wouldn't be the first time Nintendo released a new Zelda game on two platforms at roughly the same time. Back in 2006, the original Twilight Princess released first for Nintendo's newly-released Wii system before releasing on the Gamecube a month later. Might we see a similar scenario play out? It's certainly possible, but we will have to wait a few more months for Nintendo to offer concrete details on what fans can expect for the future.
