The new A Link Between Worlds Artwork is terrible

Compare this beauty:

With this goofy something:

What was Nintendo thinking? The classic artwork style looked so amazing... But now we get retarded Link. This is aweful. I don't like it at all.

An interesting detail is the bracelet. In the original artwork it is green, in the new version it is purple. Much like the item gauge. So, it's most likely that this bracelet has something to do with the new item system and/or the wall merging.

If my theory about Link actually being a painting that came to life would be correct, it might be that the bracelet is what allows him to take human form and use other items besides sword and shield (those he already had as a painting).

Maybe the bracelet will gradually receive different abilities or powerups, like the arrows in OOT, MM and TWW.
