Rangers_of_the_North noticed it around a month ago (thanks, @MaxOfS2D) after climbing into the area, which you can find halfway up the gatehouse on the bridge over Lake Hylia.

As soon as you enter, the trademark shading is disabled, leaving Link looking like a terrifying children's doll.

Actually, he looks more like a 1997 Square Enix cutscene.

    man.. I have no idea how people find this stuff

      Probably trying to find korok seed then went into the hole to check.

    I'm honestly a bit surprised my son hasn't told me this.

    Nintendo. Please update the graphics to use non-cell shading. That Linky looks amazing.
