The original Legend of Zelda laid the groundwork for almost every action-RPG that came after it, and ever since it has become a staple franchise for Nintendo that is still going strong, 30 plus years later. When Shigeru Miyamoto’s masterpiece was released, The Legend of Zelda was a first in so many categories. Not only was it an early example of open-world and non-linear gameplay, but it also introduced a battery backup to save your progress. The Legend of Zelda is without a doubt, one of the most influential games of all time, and one of the greatest games ever made. It was ahead of its time and it stands the test of time. Very few games can make that claim and generations after is initial release, The Legend of Zelda continues to inspire creatives around the world.
When Fortnite Creative launched at the end of 2018, it offered another platform for the general public to let their imaginations run wild and recreate whatever their hearts desired. YouTuber Mustard is one of those creatives who did just that and created this incredible— and I do mean incredible— representation of The Legend of Zelda, complete with an overworld and nine dungeons.
While Fortnite Creative is still young, plenty of talented creators have proved this isn’t just some cheap Minecraft knock-off and with Epic’s blessing, their hard work can be shared and played by anyone.
