Father and son

The mysterious individual behind the parody Twitter account PeterMolydeux has created a sequel to the nightmarish Nintendo: A Sad Story, this time focusing on the Zelda series.

The bizarrely poignant clip sees a wide-eyed and innocent Link being forced to open a seemingly endless series of chests until he collapses from exhaustion — presumably a critical dig at Nintendo's over-reliance on its core franchises. Shigeru Miyamoto and Satoru Iwata both make appearances, and the ending — which we won't spoil for you — is actually quite moving.

The PeterMolydeux Twitter account is famous for its outlandish game ideas which parody the real-life designer Peter Molyneux's own incredibly ambitious — and usually over-hyped — game pitches.
