Nintendo wishes us a happy holiday with snowboarding Link

Hylian Hanukkah is the best Hanukkah.

Nintendo wishes us all a happy holiday with new The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild footage wherein Link uses his shield as a makeshift snowboard. 'Tis the season!

Oh Link, you sleigh us.

"A Link to holidays past... and those yet to come," Nintendo said in its intro before concluding with "Happy holidays and a legendary new year."

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is slated for release in "early 2017" for Wii U and Switch. It's still unclear if it will be a launch title for Switch, though that seems unlikely as the console is planned to launch in March while Zelda's release date remains more ambiguous.
