Darksiders is a game heavily inspired by Zelda, so it seems fitting that Joe Madureira, the creative director and artist behind Darksiders and its sequel, would put together his own take on the Hero of Time. I'm just surprised we didn't see it sooner.
The image showed up on Joe Madureira's Facebook page. Madureira says that this version of Link is a sort of amalgamation of his many different versions over the years. Madureira's take is the younger Link, because that is the version he prefers. He also said that he had such a great time drawing Link, that he would like to do more recognizable characters in the future.
Back in 2008, when Darksiders first released, Penny Arcade tried their hand at a version of Death with Link's armor. It all feels as though it has come full circle.
