The pixel-based entries in the massively popular Legend of Zelda series might lack the immersion seen in the more recent offerings like Skyward Sword and Twilight Princess HD, but they have a quality which is almost timeless.

Amazingly, even when these flat 2D images are turned into 3D landscapes, the appeal of that iconic pixel-heavy artwork remains undiminished - as you can see from the screens below. French artist Sir Carma has used 3D voxels to reproduce Link's house from Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and it looks stunning. A mixture of old-school artwork and the kind of 3D structuring that makes Minecraft so popular, these fan-made images make us crave for a new Zelda which uses the same visual approach seen in the PS3 title 3D Dot Game Heroes.
