legend of zelda


As part of a series of posts celebrating the 30th anniversary of the release of the original Legend of Zelda on the Famicom in Japan, Nintendo have offered a glimpse at a storage facility where they keep never-sold, mint-in-box consoles from days gone by. They shared snaps of Famicom units (including an unboxing), the Famicom Disk System, and even a Famicom Disk Writer – a kiosk unit that was found in video game stores in Japan where punters could bring in their own floppy disks to have games written to them. They even fired up Zelda on an old CRT.

These photos are like peering back in time. Check out the full set below. [click to continue…]


Rumors cropped up last year that claimed Netflix was launching a Legend of Zelda series described as “Game of Thrones for a family audience”. Those rumors have been shot down for the time being, but worry not! MegaSteakMan has been hard at work producing a fantastic Zelda/GoT fan-film as a follow-up to the mock Game of Hyrule title sequence he did last year.

Clocking in at just shy of six minutes, this thing is elaborate, funny, and wonderfully assembled. Check out the short, as well as those wonderful opening credits, below.

zelda decor

Don’t get me wrong, I really like what redditor McPhage has done here. Combining the Zelda series with custom 3d printed mounts does make a pretty spectacular wall decoration.

But part of me thinks it’s a pity that these games won’t be played.

Take a closer look at the project in the gallery after the break…

The minds over at FOX’s Animation Domination High-Def have created a new animated music video that adds hilariously honest lyrics to The Legend of Zelda theme song. From the description:

What is the Legend of Zelda? It’s the legend of a little moron, who can’t talk, and wastes time.

Check it out after the break.

These fantastic lamps are handmade by MaladeeMakes out of wood. The Harry Potter lamps feature a different house on each side with a decoupaged color paper interior to represent the color of each house. You can choose either a stained finish, brown paint, or gold paint for your 7″ square lamp.

The Zelda version includes Link’s shield, the Hyrule crest and Majora’s mask with Navi, Ciela, Tati and Tael along the edges of each image.

mario kart

Nintendo has officially teamed up with Universal Parks & Resorts to create themed rides and attractions. The nature of these attractions hasn’t been disclosed, but Nintendo did confirm that they will be based on their “most famous characters and games.”

We’re already dreaming of live action Mario Kart racing and a Legend Of Zelda ride.

As you can probably tell from this custom Wind Waker-inspired GameCube, artist Vadu Amka has a thing for The Legend of Zelda. It looks like some sort of ancient machine. The level of detail is impressive—it even features Hylian numbers for the joystick ports.

The custom cube took roughly three months to create, and while it isn’t for sale, you can check out a video after the break that Vadu shot so you can see it up close.

Artist Griffon Ramsey often looks to her fans for requests regarding her next YouTube art project. Lately, a lot of her fans have been asking her to make a life-sized version Majora’s Mask from The Legend of Zelda, so she obliged. Needless to say, her skills with a chainsaw are pretty impressive.

dalek - sailor moon

I’ve yet to be scared by Daleks in Doctor Who. They’re clunky, and unless there are large quantities of them closing in, I’m not impressed. I do appreciate their iconic design though, and Kelly, a.k.a. egyptianruin on DeviantArt, has mashed the Doctor’s enemy together with some cute characters – like Sailor Moon! Daleks look good with blonde hair. Who knew?

This and other 2.5 inch Dalek figures by Kelly were made from polymer clay and hand-painted. She created them for MAGFest a few years ago.

See a few other Dalek mash-ups after the break.

NicoNico user “A” has an incredible amount of patience. The builder took the word “miniature” to the extreme by making small dioramas of Pokémon Red’s Pallet Town, Super Mario 64’s Bob-omb Battefield, and Legend of Zelda’s Hyrule. How small you ask? They fit on a coin the size of a quarter. Seriously. I can’t imagine the precision required to make these dioramas look so great.

See more photos and a video of the Hyrule diorama after the break.
