Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been keeping many players sane during these uncertain times. The title defines our lives currently by letting us go enjoy time outside without us really having us go outside. Island time for most of AC players involves either enjoying the beach or creating things interesting in their virtual worlds. The island time of Twitter user penpen_0907 apparently involves recreating the Hyrule Castle Courtyard from Ocarina of Time. And this recreation isn’t out of sheer boredom either,…

However, thanks to a new collaboration between Helynt and Dj Cutman, the Zelda series and its music has been completely reimagined with the trademark 80’s sound. Known as The Legend of Synthwave, this concept album takes…

Earlier in the year, Nintendo announced a partnership with LEGO and the development of building sets based on the world of Super Mario. Fans of LEGO were certainly excited to have sets based on one of their favorite video games, but it should be noted that Nintendo fans have dreamt of Zelda-inspired LEGO sets long before these Mario ones were announced. There have been a few fan proposals for Zelda-themed sets in the past, one notable being the stables from…

Of the many games in which Nintendo’s flagship character Mario has been featured, one of most memorable is the flat, paper-like classic known as Paper Mario. This RPG title re-envisioned the long-running Mario franchise with creativity and charm, and fans of Nintendo have since wondered what such a re-imagining would look like for The Legend of Zelda. Well, look no further than this recent fan-animated short from YouTube channel 64 Bits. Various artists harnessed the child-like charm of the Paper…
