Ocarina of Time would look like
A fan of The Legend of Zelda creates a cubic diorama showing what an Ocarina of Time scene would look like with a classic 2D Zelda design.
For many Nintendo fans, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was one of their first introductions to the 3D gaming world, as it became one of the bestsellers Zelda titles of all time. In the same way Super Mario 64, these Nintendo games set a standard that many developers attempted to replicate over the following years. While many fans appreciate Ocarina of time for revolutionizing the gameplay of the series using 3D, one fan decided to reinvent the game in a 2D design.
Known on Reddit as Mr0range_crafts, the Zelda fan presented a new artwork based on the Ocarina of time. Using a cubic diorama, the designer recreated a scene from the iconic game. The design features incredible Link, Navi, and Zelda sprites, along with detailed trees and other landscapes. Using these finely crafted elements, the creator managed to represent the scene in a classic 2D Zelda artistic style.
Mr0range_crafts provided some details regarding the diorama making process. They revealed that the design used a combination of acrylic, paper, and cardboard to help achieve the 2D effect. And while Mr0range_crafts created the diorama and the case, he commissioned another artist AlbertoV aka dya_games to design the sprites for the project. This is not the first time that the creator has created retrogaming dioramas, they have made other dioramas based on classic franchises as for the Rayman series.
THE Legend of Zelda The community on Reddit loved this overhaul created by Mr0range_crafts. With over 2,300 up votes, fans commented on how the diorama captured the nostalgia of the original game while giving it a unique twist. As fans continue to debate 2D or 3D Zelda it’s better, this new art from the creator has made some on Reddit wish another remake of Ocarina of time, except this time in 2D.
Ocarina of time was released in 1998 for Nintendo 64 and offered gamers the ability to control Link for the first time in 3D. Located in the Kingdom of Hyrule, the developers have created an immersive world for players to explore. The game even received a remake called Ocarina of time 3D with enhanced visuals on the Nintendo 3DS. However, it would be interesting to see the developers at Nintendo attempt to remake the game in 2D as well.
It’s exciting to see fans reinventing classic titles in a new way, like with the cube diorama from Mr0range_crafts. Along with a number of other 3D Zelda available games, such as Wind waker and Breath of the wild, it will be interesting to see if the creator decides to do more dioramas of the series in the future.
