The recently held Nintendo Live event sparked a heated debate among fans about upcoming updates to their favorite game. The event took place in Japan, and a nice novelty was an ad featuring Tears of the Kingdom from The Legend of Zelda series.

And the statue itself looks very impressive; it can be safely called a collector's dream.
Shortly after the event ended, many Zelda fans were able to get a glimpse of what the statue looked like, even if they weren't at the Nintendo Live 2022, as a number of posts appeared on Twitter with photos and videos of the life-size statue. And all the presented materials testify that the creators clearly wanted to focus on Link's hand, which, glowing blue-green, persistently reaches for something.
