Our dreams of a remake reveal for The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask may have gone unfulfilled during E3, but the iconic Nintendo 64 title still lives on in various fan projects and products. One example is currently seeking crowdfunding support — it's a rather charming advent calendar.
The work of Culture Cal and what the company hopes will be the first of multiple products, this is a wooden board with individual tokens for the masks from the title — one for each of the 24 days in the Christmas countdown. Below is a description from the company.
The advent calendar consists of an 8x12 wood board with an etched carving of Termina, the world where the game takes place, and 24 'mask tokens.' The map has been recreated as a Tolkien-esque fantasy map, and the tokens are artistic recreations lacquered on wooden coins. There are 24 small hooks secured in the map, and for each day of the advent season owners add a token of their choice to the map. At the end of the holiday season, all masks tokens are displayed proudly on a board that fits comfortably on any number of household or business surfaces.
It certainly looks attractive, and is seeking a total of $7,500 in funding, with the full calendar — which can naturally be re-used every year — coming in at the $50 reward tier. Should this campaign be successful franchises such as Batman, Dr. Who, Pokemon, Fallout and Elder Scrolls are lined up for future products; this is a small-scale project, so hopefully licensing concerns won't be an issue.
You can see full details at the Kickstarter page — is this the kind of handicraft you'd like to own?
