If you’ve ever wondered what old game art might look like if it were updated, here’s a great example. American animator Parker Simmons turned parts of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past SNES manual and other objects into living, breathing images.

The results are quite impressive – with the Super Nintendo action-adventure masterpiece from 1991 in full swing. It has more Zelda fans on social media asking for an official cartoon in this style, than the one we actually got.

Simmons revealed that the ‘Link vs Stalfos’ battle was played in Adobe Animate, had about 110 characters, 70 frames, and the music was taken from a Zelda “Sound and Drama” CD from the ’90s. . Perhaps the most surprising thing is that the SFX was omitted from Dragon Quest VIII, but it’s worth it! Note: This original art appears to have been returned from The Legend of Zelda: Art & Artifacts Dark Horse book released in 2016/17.
