The Legend of Zelda invades Google Maps

This fan-crafted Deku Mask from Majora looks too real

While I wasn't huge on Majora's Mask as a kid, it did grow on me, just like a few other Zelda games. MasenkoProps seems like they're still pretty big on it though, and for good reason -- it has some of the best lore, locales, and ...

You won't want to use the Ganondorf amiibo in the Twilight Princess remake
