Creative director Matthew Stevenson said that when they were kids, he and his brother were frustrated by the confusing maze that is Metroid. Recently the title’s pun with the DC Metro came to his mind, and with it his childhood frustration.
You don’t get far in The Legend of Zelda franchise without collecting some rupees to buy things in the game or play mini games. In real life if you want to collect rupees, the closest you will get is these edible rupees.
It’s dangerous to play alone! Take this Legend of Zelda Collector’s Edition Chess Set. It’s the new Zelda game you have been waiting for. Well, not exactly, but it is a cool new way to enjoy the Zelda universe.

Good Smile Company ensures that its Wind Waker Link Nendoroid won’t go alone by releasing a Nendoroid of the game’s version of Zelda, princess of Hyrule, leader of pirates, and mocker of Link.
Zelda looks so pretty in her brightly colored dress and jewelry.
Z-target in the dark with the help of this more or less 1:1 scale Navi lamp by Etsy seller Candace aka AFK for Cosplay. Navi’s wings are made of resin while the LED is battery operated and can light up in seven different colors.
As of this writing Candace’s Etsy shop is closed because she’s sick, but it looks like her personal online shop still has some in stock for $30 (USD) each.
YouTuber Terry Garrett aka Mega Tgarrett has achieved what I would have thought was impossible. He beat The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, even though he’s blind. It took him a very long time and he had the help of game saves, but still.
Metal-meets-gaming clothing brand Death MtnDEATH MTN DE▲TH M✝N has a new t-shirt for longtime Legend of Zelda fans and other gamers in the know. The Princess t-shirt features a shot of Zelda from the unsurprisingly bizarre Japanese commercial for The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.
Honestly, I hadn’t seen the ad until today, so I have Attract Mode to thank for this.
We’ve already seen a fan-made Hylian Shield backpack, but if you’d like to support the big N then ThinkGeek’s officially licensed Legend of Zelda bag is for you. It has a 15″x 17″ main compartment, a 14″x 10.5″
Last year, we featured Kelsey Kronmiller’s Super Mario Bros. aquarium. She followed that one with another aquarium based on The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, which can now be your fish’s Water Temple.
Don’t worry, I’m not saying you should have Xbox Live for breakfast. Etsy store Big Nerd Wolf is selling actual tea that has geeky characters as tea hangers. Although they do look like they’re immersing their… lower extremities in your drink.
You can order the tea from Big Nerd Wold’s Etsy shop.
Redditor BigBadBobBitchin made this beautiful The Legend of Zelda-themed nightlight as a Valentine’s Day for his girlfriend. The nightlight looks like an armory, with some of Link’s swords and shields displayed in front of a fake stained glass of the Hylian crest.
BigBadBobBitchin bought the miniature weapons at a comic convention, but he made the fake stained glass himself using plexiglass and translucent paint.
Grab your loved one’s heart container with this awesome ring container. Etsy seller Zachariah Cruise cleverly mounted a rupee-shaped box inside a treasure chest to make it look like it’s floating in mid-air.
The chest has lights inside and plays the series’ treasure chest sound effect when opened (though Zachariah didn’t say from which game in particular it’s from).
You can order the treasure chest and ring box on Zachariah’s Etsy shop for $200 (USD).
The costumes of the Mario Bros. and Link are some of the easiest video game get ups to emulate. But if you’re short on patience or skills, you can do worse than TV Store Online’s officially licensed hoodies.

Neutral Ground sells the map for $195 (USD).

Alain Wildgen converts scenes from old video games to 3D artworks by hand. For each game, Alain looks for a good screenshot online and prints that on paper. He then adds depth to the scene by cutting the print into several pieces and using foam rubber to raise some of the pieces above the others.
