What if The Legend of Zelda took place in the Wild West?


The Power, the Wisdom and the Courage

When the folks at Beatdown Boogie aren't shooting at a con, they go behind the set to create their own special projects. In their latest video, the group gives us a taste of how The Legend fo Zelda would turn as a spaghetti western. From the great costumes to the nods to classic cowboy films, Hang Em Hyrule managed to capture the essence of both mediums.

Of course, the short's twist was a great way to deceive the viewers since it was almost a shout-out to one of the game series' timelines. Seeing that Beatdownboogie has done their own takes on existing properties before, I can't wait to see the next two things that they'll combine later on.

For now, their video has left me with the desire to play a Zelda game that utilizes the spaghetti western motif to its fullest. In regards to how it could work, it's references could be similar to the way how the Boktai series paid homage to the genre.
