E3 here we come! Nintendo of Europe’s Twitter released new artwork today for the highly anticipated new Zelda title.

Link strikes a heroic pose astride Epona in this new piece. Still wearing his blue hooded tunic instead of the faithful green, he holds what appears to be a sword other than the Master Sword. Could the lack of the familiar symbols mean that this work represents an early point in the game? Or could it mean that those items will not be present in the first place?

The Twitter post goes on to announce the time and date of the Zelda Treehouse Livestream which will be at 9am PDT on June 14, 2016.

Regardless of speculation, the artwork is stunning and fuels the ever growing fires of excitement for the Zelda community. With gaming’s biggest event of the year less than a week away, I personally cannot wait for what Nintendo has in store!

    Ugh. They made him right-handed again… I thought we were done with motion controls.

      Maybe it has to do with the customization, that we have to option to chose his dominate hand XD
