To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Nintendo’s classic “The Legend of Zelda,” Google has left a cute little easter-egg in plain sight on the desktop version of Google Maps. Typically, if a user wants to toggle between a map and Google’s Street View, they would need to drag a faceless little yellow dude to the spot on the map that they want to explore. For the next few days, that little dude is none other than Link, the protagonist of the popular RPG.
The video above highlights the history of the Google logo through the years, and ends with a brand new wordmark for the brand. This change comes on the heels of last month’s corporate restructuring, and seems to have been inspired by a desire for the search giant’s logo to look great on Mobile devices.
