The Legend of Zelda is a hugely influential, widely beloved, and undeniably two-dimensional game. YouTuber CodyCantEatThis aims to challenge that last bit. Already well-known for his remarkable eye and talent for rebuilding classic 2D games in 3D, Cody has been cracking away at an incredible 3D rebuild of the original The Legend of Zelda title from NES. Back in May, he provided a status update showing the extensive work that he put into rebuilding the game’s iconic overworld, its many enemies, and a host of crucial items. Now, Cody is back with more: this time, he rebuilt all of the game’s dungeons and boss fights. It was not easy. Check out the video below for an in-depth walkthrough of his creative process.
Talk about an impressive project. The Legend of Zelda made waves as a 2D game, but it looks really cool in 3D as well. As Cody has mentioned before, he does not usually go this in-depth with his 3D remakes of games. Something about The Legend of Zelda just happened to draw him in, pushing him to just about remake the entire game. Whatever made him undertake this incredible project, we’re glad that we get to enjoy the final result.
