YouTuber HMK got to play Twilight Princess HD early. He discovered that on the walls of Chudley's Fine Goods and Fancy Trinkets Emporium inside of Castle Town are virtual paintings of Zelda Wii U art.

There are multiple paintings on the walls that mirror the art that Nintendo released when it announced the new Zelda game years ago. The images, one showcasing Link riding on Epona across Hyrule Field and another of his battle against a creepy creature, are also displayed in smaller frames on the shop counters.

NintendoLife also shot a video of the Easter eggs; check it out below.

The Legend of Zelda for Wii U is due out sometime in 2016, though a release date has not been announced. It may also come to Wii U successor the NX, according to a recent report.

It wouldn't be the first time Nintendo released the same Zelda game for two systems. Twilight Princess was released in 2006 both for GameCube and Wii.

Twilight Princess HD is being developed by Australian studio Tantalus, and is due out on March 4, 2016.

The game will support a new Wolf Link Amiibo, as well as other toys from the Smash Bros. roster (e.g. Toon Link, Zelda, Ganondorf, etc.). Some of these, such as Link and Toon Link, can be used to replenish arrows. Zelda and Sheik, meanwhile, can restore health.

Progress saved to the Amiibo from Twilight Princess will carry over in some way to the upcoming The Legend of Zelda game on Wii U, though further details have not been announced.
