Someone painstakingly recreated Zelda: A Link to the Past in Dragon Quest Builders 2


A link to the JRPG

BenXC has been hard at work recreating the SNES (and later, GBA) classic Zelda: A Link to the Past, but with a slight twist: they're crafting it in Dragon Quest Builders 2 from scratch.

Similar to how Minecraft players create all sorts of crazy builds, BenXC claims that the project has been in development for over half a year, and includes "150 hours of work, 2,500 hand-planted trees, and over 300,000 blocks placed by hand." This is a labor of love: a creative itch the Zelda series is known to spark. They picked a good one! A Link to the Past is still my favorite Zelda, though the list is getting even more competitive these days with the likes of the Link's Awakening remake and Breath of the Wild.

It's all here: Death Mountain, Eastern Palace, you name it. BenXC has been chronicling their build for months, and now you can reap the benefits. Try the level out yourself with the following ID: npyrd8ZJVM.
