Hyrule Warriors Artwork from 1998

Believe it or not, but Nintendo released their first artwork for Hyrule Warriors back in the year 1998:


Well, actually this was made for Ocarina of Time. However, this particular scene with Link and Sheik surrounded by lots of monsters never happens during the game. It even made fans fantasize about this art for years...

Now in 2014 Hyrule Warriors makes this old artwork come to life. This is what you get in the game. Fighting side by side with Sheik in a dark valley against lots of monsters.

(Well, normally there aren't as many strong enemies at once, but the Echsalfos and Stalfos are in the game, we even have the Skyward Sword Moblins, which are kind of similar. But the idea of the artwork certainly got realized.)

As TV Tropes would say, this is Hilarious in Hindsight.
