Fan creativity can often have rather off the wall results. Typically when fan work is viewed, one might ask "Why?", but in reality, the question one should be asking is "Why not?" That was likely the question going through these fans' minds as they developed this short video, it exists solely because of the power of "Why not?"
A small team of video editors took the opening of HBO's popular Game of Thrones and gave it a Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past flavour. Indeed, many comparisons can be drawn between the two fantasy franchises and it's a rather amusing watch. These fans should certainly be commended for their attention to detail and if those shaky rumours of a live action Zelda series do turn out to be true, perhaps its intro could take inspiration from this. We also included the original Game of Thrones intro for comparison.
What do you think? Does this make you wish that the live action Zelda rumours are true? Iwata may have quashed those rumours recently, but hope doesn't listen to reason!
This video was great, and full of power
I love Game of Thrones/ASOIAF & Zelda and I thought this was incredible!
I have next to no knowledge of Game of Thrones, but that opening was neat.
Also, when I tried to watch the actual Game of Thrones opening, it stated that the owner has disabled viewing on other sites.
That was very clever, good job to the creators.
Saw this somewhere before, it is pretty great.
Nicely done. And now I want an open world sequel to Yoshi Wooly World.
the best Zelda game
Very cool. Great animation and music adaptation.
@DarthNocturnal Thanks for pointing that out, man; I got it switched.
My body is ready for Game of Thrones' new season.
Genius! It's very well done.
Got intro is much better, still cool though
I LOVE GAME OF THRONES AND ZELDA. Put them together and its pure awsomeness o
Visually it's amazing, but the theme doesn't work.
@DarthNocturnal same. i know literally nothing about the show, but the opening alone (which i've just now seen for the first time) has made me want to start the series right away haha
That was executed about as close to perfect as you can get.
@aaronsullivan - In my defense, when I asked my kids what game it looked like they both said Little Big Planet. Which was my original response but I edited to to be site appropriate.
For anybody whos interested, the season 4 intro is better.
