Fan-made "Paper Zelda" trailer looks good enough to be a real thing

Nintendo, take note!

When it comes to the 'Paper' treatment, Nintendo has gone all-out on Mario. There's been a few Kirby and Yoshi games that dabble in the papercraft genre, but Paper Mario is its own series. The gang over at 64 Bits doesn't think it's fair that Mario gets to hog all the folding fun, so they took a crack at things with The Legend of Zelda.

If you showed me the above trailer and told me it was Nintendo's next game, I would believe you. This is one of the most high-quality fan projects I've ever seen. The attention to detail is top-notch, and the references to the man adventures of Link and Zelda only make it that much better. Just watching the trailer makes me want Nintendo to give this idea crack. It's unbelievably charming, and I would be chomping at the bit to give it a go.

Artist turns a Game Boy into a living Legend of Zelda scene

A tiny tribute

The Game Boy played host to countless top-tier franchises, including The Legend of Zelda. Artist RetroEtched is paying tribute to Zelda's numerous appearances on the Game Boy with a one-of-a-kind piece that brings the series to life in a whole new way.

In the Instagram post above, RetroEtched shared a look at how the whole project came together. The Game Boy itself was just a shell to begin with, so don't worry about a working Game Boy being gutted for this piece. The sword and plinth were custom modeled, and the Game Boy's screen void was filled with foam to seat everything together.

As we said, this is a one-of-a-kind piece, so you can snatch one for yourself. You can check out RetroEtched's Etsy shop though, where he sells some other Zelda-inspired items.

Animal Crossing/DOOM Eternal fan-made animation takes the tributes to a whole new level

A Hell of a pairing

We've had plenty of hand-drawn tributes featuring Isabelle and the DOOM Slayer together, but the video above is on a whole different level. We finally get to see what it would be like if Isabelle entered the world of DOOM and worked together with the DOOM Slayer. Man, these two really do look like a bad-ass pairing!

Fan-made amiibo mashes up Animal Crossing's Isabelle with the DOOM Slayer

Don’t mess with her!

The Doom Slayer and Isabelle have been getting along famously lately, thanks to a whole fan-art movement. With both Animal Crossing: New Horizons and DOOM Eternal coming out on the same day, fans of both franchises couldn't help but pay tribute to one another.

The latest effort showcasing the love from both sides is a fan-made amiibo that puts Isabelle in the Doom Slayer's suit. We already knew that Isabelle was tough from her Smash Bros. appearance, but this takes things to a whole new level!

Artist creates a an amazing Sonic the Hedgehog movie bust

A master of his craft

When the Sonic the Hedgehog debut movie trailer came out, most fans were horrified to see the design that was being used. The backlash was so bad that the movie got pushed back, and Sonic went through a complete overhaul. The version we got in the final film was still noticeably different from classic Sonic, but much more palatable.

One artist has decided to pay tribute to that version of Sonic with a sculpture, and you can watch the entire process above. It's amazing to see the project come together, and the final result is pretty damn perfect.

Thanks to MysteryMan for the heads up!

Pokemon Sword and Shield art director draws a 'buff Kirby' tribute

Well isn't that swole

Pokemon Sword and Shield art director James Turner has shared a bunch of tribute art in the past, but this time around he's back with his most unique take yet. For whatever reason, Turner has turned his attention to Kirby for a muscle-bound makeover. Seeing Kirby all beefed up is a bit strange, but somehow, the tiny hat on his head seems to make everything better!
