PopCap Included Some Legendary Wind Waker Easter Eggs In PvZ: Garden Warfare

Most players are too busy blasting zombies and defending their gardens to notice, but Plants Vs. Zombies has a few cool Zelda related easter eggs for observant fans.

The find comes courtesy of StrangeLuv, a YouTube channel dedicated to random gaming goodness. The first easter egg is a giant red boat located on the Driftwood Gardens and Graveyards map. You may have to sneak into enemy territory to see it, but emblazoned along the side of the boat in the marina is "The King of Red Dandelions." This is of course a nice reference Link's boat "The King of Red Lions" in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.

While that is cool enough, another Wind Waker easter egg can be seen from the same spot. It may not be immediately recognizable, but off in the distance is an island silhouette that should be familiar to Wind Waker fans — Outset Island, the island where Link begins his journey in Wind Waker. This will most likely be the only time the Legend of Zelda appears in some shape or form on a Microsoft console, so go ahead and enjoy it.
