The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Has a Really Neat Ocarina of Time Easter Egg

Spoiler-y and cool.

Judging by the reaction of the internet, this Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild easter egg slipped by a lot of players, including us. An image from reddit has been making the internet rounds showing off a neat little callback found in the Breath of the Wild DLC, Trials of the Sword so if you haven't played it yet, here's your spoiler warning.

Reddit user Kamuilyn posted a picture on Reddit upon the completion of the Trials of the Sword DLC that shows off pictures of the mysterious monks at the end of each shrine. Only these monks are positioned in a very specific way.

The seven monks are positioned in the same way as the seven sages from Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. You can see an image below of each monk and their corresponding sage (thanks Kamuilyn).

Trials of the Sword is part of the first DLC pack for Breath of the Wild that also came with a hard mode. Our Breath of the Wild DLC review said that the hard mode will test even the toughest of gamers, so beware.

If you noticed this easter egg earlier it's very cool, but for those of us who haven't seen this yet it's pretty neat. It really makes you wonder just how many easter eggs might still be hidden in Breath of the Wild.

We named Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as our favorite game of 2017. Our perfect score Breath of the Wild review has nothing but praise for the wholly unique Zelda experience.
