Alongside his announcing of an announcement, Aonuma shared some new artwork from the game — one of the few in which Link’s Twilight Princess incarnation is — gasp! — smiling. Hit the jump to check out the translated Twitter post, as well as a high-quality version of the image featured above.
“Hello, this is Aonuma. This year the world of Twilight returns in HD after 10 years. From today we’d like to introduce information on Twilight Princess for a while.
