Legend of Zelda 3D Animated Fan Film

You know what Nintendo’s attitude is towards fan-made Zelda content, but regardless this film is pretty cool. Some of the animations are a bit funny and the FPS isn’t that great (and there are some silly grammar mistakes), but the graphics look pretty sweet and overall this is a very well-made piece of Zelda fan content! The graphics look much like Twilight Princess, with link’s face perhaps bearing some resemblance to his Skyward Sword self (or his SSB version).

Legend of Zelda Achievements

Over at our Zelda Forums a topic came up recently about achievements in the Legend of Zelda. Of course, Nintendo seemingly has no plans to incorporate an Xbox or PS3-style achievements system for the Wii or DS, but the idea of Legend of Zelda achievements was quite an interesting one! In this post, I have made up some achievements I feel would be suitable for The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. If you had the opportunity to implement an achievements system into any Zelda game, would you? If so, what achievements would you set?

Some of my proposed Link’s Awakening achievements:

N64 Handheld Mod

An electrician and game modifier by the alias of Hailrazer has accomplished something quite impressive. He has taken the components of an N64 and has connected them in and around a Gameboy Advance case to create what he calles the N64Boy Advance. It is exactly like an N64 and it will play any N64 game, but it’s handheld! Check out the video above to watch him talk about it and play a few games on it, including Ocarina of Time!
