2014.06.15 GoT zelda

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, HBO’s hit TV show Game of Thrones must be feeling rather pleased with itself these days. From Disney cartoon characters to woodblock-like prints of the show in feudal-era Japan, there is no lack of love from talented fans.

This newest fan-made project is sure to please both fans of the show and gamers around the world, as it blends the world of none other than Super NES classic The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past with the realm of Westeros.

If you are a Game of Thrones addict, then you’re definitely familiar with the opening theme song that sets the mood for the violent, tense and betrayal-filled show. Using that song, the Pixel Kingdom took Link’s world of Hyrule and designed it to look like Westeros. The end product is a video that many Japanese netizens said made them hopeful an actual Zelda/Game of Thrones video game mashup would be made. Can you even imagine how wonderfully disturbing Princess Zelda and Cersei Lannister squaring off for a magic-versus-knife fight would be?

How close did these GoT fans get to accurately combining the worlds of Hyrule and Westeros? Are there any Game of Thrones crossovers you wish existed? Let us know in the comments below what you think of the video!
