Ah… 8-bit tunes… Who doesn’t love that simplistic yet amazing sound? YouTube user Bulby has recreated the Clock Town theme from Majora’s Mask in the 8-bit music style. This fantastic piece sounds like it was ripped straight from a port to the Game Boy (a port I wish existed)! If you’re curious, check out the video. I highly recommend it…

The twin Italian artists of Van Orton Design recently created an animated GIF of Link, Ganondorf, and Hyrule Castle. The piece is titled “The Legend of Zelda” and is a very unique and attention grabbing take on the rivalry between the Hero and the Prince of Darkness. The color scheme and rather geometric style make it reminiscent of Tron, and make it a worthwhile piece of artwork for any Zelda fan to view. Hit the jump to take a look!

During the Nintendo Direct today, we got some interesting news about Ultimate NES Remix – the NES Remix port for the 3DS. Apparently, if you purchase either the digital or physical copy of Ultimate NES Remix, you’ll get a free Famicom-inspired 3DS theme. It even has Link and Ganon in it! You can check it out after the jump!

As of late, the retro vibe has been quite popular in indie titles. While many of these creations are infused with a good deal of originality and respect for the games which inspired them, it’s hard to know when to draw the line between “inspired by” and “copied from”.
