As if the impending release of Breath of the Wild wasn’t exciting enough, Famitsu has revealed the cover for their latest magazine featuring a very special piece of art. The artwork depicted is of Link from the original Legend of Zelda passing on the Master Sword to Breath of the Wild’s Link. It’s both touching and symbolic, especially since the latest game takes so much inspiration from the first.

I love it for the fact that it seems to perfectly encapsulate both what has changed and what hasn’t with the series throughout the years. What do you think of the artwork?

    The Legend of Zelda is the best video game franchise ever. I knew this since I was a kid (I’m 31 right now).

    Other than LOZ Link being older by Zelda II and not having the Master Sword, this is really good.
