There have been a good deal of Zelda related buildings, icons, and maps spotted floating around the Minecraft universe; in this particular bit of fan material though, the plot of nearly every Legend of Zelda game has been packed into a minute long Minecraft-style parody of the series. The video pokes fun at some of the series’ idiosyncrasies and Link’s sleepy tendencies. In the end, Link goes a little haywire and makes some rash decisions.
Welcome to the seventh installment of Piece of Heart, where we look at The Legend of Zelda series through the eyes of a literary professor and examine how its literary elements enhance the gaming experience. This week’s lesson is titled “If She Comes Up… It’s Baptism”. Basically, being submerged in water can represent a character’s rebirth. The Wind Waker in its entirety comes immediately to mind, leading into the lands that emerge to make up new Hyrule in Spirit Tracks.
Characters being dipped in water, getting soaked, or drowning also have significance. There’s a shocking amount of water in Zelda if you really think about it; there are lakes, bays, temples, oceans, fountains! A drenching or two is inevitable, so I’m going to take the plunge and analyze a few.
Imgur user James Sharp (JasperHams) has conceptualized a series of 3D printed masks from Majora’s Mask. Sharp has created designs for all of the transformation masks, as well as Majora’s mask itself. His re-imagined masks are far more realistic than the masks in-game; Sharp hopes the Deku mask will have an aged tree bark texture, his Zora mask is more aquatically accurate, and his Fierce Deity mask draws inspiration from Japanese Kabuki.
When playing Majora’s Mask, we’ve all taken masks on and off as we please, wherever and whenever- as it’s what you’re supposed to do to complete objectives. But have we ever considered what the citizens of Clock Town, or what the population of Termina, have thought when they see a little Deku Scrub suddenly transform into a child in the blink of an eye? Or maybe Darmani -Beloved Warrior and Goron Hero-, transforming into Mikau -Zora guitarist of the Indigo-Go’s-, in a matter of seconds… in the middle of public? Dorkly’s Majora’s Mask comic showcases just that, with a Clock Town Guard being the victim. Check it out after the jump!
So there has been a rather cryptic announcement of the possibility of a Zelda television series, yet all know that it’ll be a while before we hear anything more solid about the project. For now, though, here’s something to pacify everyone’s yearning. Vine user Johnny McHone has been releasing a creative and entertaining stop-motion series based on the Legend of Zelda since January this year.
An amazing new fan-made live action Zelda teaser trailer produced by The Zelda Project in collaboration with Player Piano was recently published on YouTube. The trailer portrays Ocarina of Time era Link riding on Epona in an open field on his way to confront Ganondorf in the stormy castle on the horizon. The teaser is only a little over a minute long, but it is a glimpse of things to come before the full trailer arrives. Jump inside to check it out for yourself!
Legend of Zelda fans love to mark their territory in different areas of gaming whenever possible; whether this serves as a mating call to alert fellow fans of their presence, or simply as homage to the series that nurtured them is up for interpretation. We recently reported on the recreation of the original Legend of Zelda’s map in Minecraft, yet another recreation has been spotted in a PC game. The MMORPG WildStar gives players a lot of freedom in Housing customization, so one devoted Zelda fan took advantage of this to build a beautiful and pristinely accurate recreation of the Temple of Time from Ocarina of Time.
Nearly a year ago Game Grumps’ hosts Arin and Daniel decided to do a playthrough of the recently released The Wind Waker HD, a game that Arin was very familiar with and Daniel was a newbie to. Though Arin was a Wind Waker veteran, that did not stop the duo from frequently running into snags on their adventure. If you were to watch the playthrough in it’s entirety, you would probably find yourself yelling at the screen trying to impede some wisdom into their misguided antics. The quest to find the Ghost Ship was one of these antics, and they have produced a hilarious animation depicting their struggle with boarding the Ghost Ship. Hit the jump to watch.

Symphony of the Goddess is in full swing, and it is amazing to hear professional musicians who work together to bring our favorite Zelda melodies to life. But what would happen if a wide array of Youtube musicians came together for the same purpose? Well, wonder no longer. Thirty musicians, 7 intense days of editing and mixing, and one video later we have a wonderful tribute to Majora’s Mask 3D with a remix of the Song of Healing. Hit the jump to take a listen to this amazing piece! Read more…
Despite having the basic concept of ‘build stuff,’ Minecraft has become a very popular game over the years. Having never played it, there’s probably a lot more to it than I realize, but people all over the world have spent countless hours putting their constructions together. In fact, two people from New Jersey embarked on a project to re-create the entire original 1986 Legend of Zelda map in Minecraft.
The project is still under way, but hit the jump to see the progress these two dedicated gamers have made so far.
Well EXCUSE ME for just a second of your time and allow me to showcase to you a rare occurrence: Fan creations based on the Zelda animated television series!

Make the jump to check out some in-depth pictures of the creation process behind Imgur user KevlarGorrila’s Crissword!
YouTube user MandoPony relays to fellow Zelda fans a rather interesting perspective of Majora’s Mask in his own original song, “Just 3 Days”. Inspired by the game– which he claims to possibly be his favorite Zelda game– MandoPony sings from the Skull Kid’s point of view, expressing a side of the story that no one has really seen before.
