There used to be a time when world maps did not appear each time you paused the game, just like it happens with most modern games. Back in the NES era, we used to check guides in magazines, or we even drew them ourselves in notebooks. One of the most famous maps from the 8-bit era was the one from the original The Legend of Zelda, which has now been recreated with Legos.
This is the work of Zelda-fan Ian Roosma, who shared on his YouTube page how the finished map looks on his wall. In an interview with Kotaku, he mentioned that it took him four months to put every tiny piece in place. He wanted a decoration that meant something special for him, and since he’s been playing TLoZ since he was a kid, he decided to make this high-detailed map of Hyrule.
Roosma used 25,000 Lego bricks and pieces, that include not only the terrain and landmarks of the map but also it has the location of 493 enemies and 2,779 trees!
Without a doubt, it’s a pretty cool homemade Zelda memorabilia that most of us wish to have in our own living rooms.
