Link’s Awakening recreated with Far Cry 3 map editor

[news post contributed by Jack L.]

Far Cry 3, an open world action adventure sandbox game, has been largely praised for its extensive map editor. A YouTube user under the name SypherAP has recently used this tool to recreate a portion of the overworld of the Game Boy game Link’s Awakening.

The video opens by showing what part of the world map has been recreated and proceeds with the creator roaming around to showcase key points of the map that represent buildings or areas from Link’s Awakening. The main area of the overworld created consists mainly of the town and a small chunk of the forest section. Other key elements of this area have also been created such as rock formations and paths that follow the level design of the Game Boy Color classic very closely.
