What’s likely in honor of the release of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD for Wii U today, Google replaced the little figure that allows you to switch to street view to Legend of Zelda’s Link, who will now lead you to your destination—or treasure, although that one isn’t guaranteed.

It’s dangerous to go alone. So why not check out the browser version of Google Maps for some legendary surprises? pic.twitter.com/Hy3cIyjySE— Nintendo of America (@NintendoAmerica) March 4, 2016
You don’t have to change your settings to access the Easter egg. All you need to do is search for any place (or just leave the map as is) and you’ll see Link sitting in the bottom right hand corner in his classic green outfit with his Master Sword and shield in hand. Just drag him onto the map as you would the regular street view cursor, and you’re ready to explore.
You won’t be able to get to Hyrule from here, but you can take Link anywhere in the world, whether you need directions or happen to check some of the places the character might go. Best to be on the lookout for any possible hidden Triforces along the way.
