The Wild West Meets Zelda In A Fist Full of Rupees

Posted by Damien McFerran

Amazing Hyrule and Spaghetti Western Mash-Up Hits YouTube

There was a time when YouTube was the sole preserve of low-grade amateur videos and footage of amusing pets performing inane stunts, but with millions of dollars being pumped into original programming on the service, we're starting to see the kind of content which rivals what we're viewing on the major TV networks in terms of quality and scope.

YouTube-focused production company Maker Studios is busy producing exactly that kind of content, and has just released A Fistful of Rupees via its GameStation channel — a three-part mini-series which fuses the worlds of Zelda and the Wild West to create one of the most appealing mash-ups we've witnessed in ages.

The three parts are all embedded below for your convenience, and you can read cast interviews and behind-the-scenes reports on the Game Station Facebook page — but don't forget to also let us know what you think of this inventive piece of work in the comments section.

Think the same as Big_Gamer. Two awesome favourite things put together cannot go wrong (at least in this case )

Not bad at all. Some great ideas in there and dabs of real talent mixed in with the low budget production values. Not sure if I like Zelda being turned into a revenge story but I guess if it's going all "fistful of dollars" you kinda have to do something like that.

How could anyone not tell that Sheik was a woman?! It was so obvious even if you've never heard of the Zelda games! If a woman is going to try something like that, she should at least wear baggy pants and disquise her voice.
