Zelda Reference in Fable III

Yet another Zelda reference has been found in mainstream gaming, this time in the most recent Fable game. In the video below, after a bit of an in-depth explanation of how to reach the location where the reference is at, a throwback to the first Legend of Zelda game is shown. Skip ahead to 1:12 if you don’t want to sit through the entire video.



I’ve always thought that the Fable series takes after Zelda a bit, so it was nice to see a bit of an homage on their part. I also thought it was clever to include a toy sword along with the quote. What are your reactions to this? Do you also find it fitting that Fable made a Zelda reference? Have you found any other interesting references in other games? Leave a comment to let us know.
