Diehard Zelda fans recreate entire Ocarina of Time in Minecraft

You've probably seen the 1:1 replica of the Star Trek Enterprise created in Minecraft. "Hyrulecraft" is more ambitious, because it's a 1:1 scale replica of the Nintendo 64 hit adventure game, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

A project of this scale doesn't just spring up over night. GenGame says Hyrulecraft took nine months of "building, rebuilding, and planning." If you've ever played Minecraft, you'll probably know that it goes without saying that many cans of Red Bull or Monster were probably consumed in the process.

With all that hard work, the alpha map can now downloaded (Media Fire link here). The devs are turning their attention to "stage 2" aka "get a working server for Hyrulecraft" so that they can turn their block-ified landscapes into a playable Minecraft MMO experience.

Stage 2 should bring playable "quests, NPCs, dungeons, free build zones and guilds."

Here's to hoping Nintendo doesn't shut down this fan project. It would also be interesting to hear what Markus "Notch" Persson, the creator of Minecraft has to say about the project.

To see the sheer epic size of the Minecrafted version of Ocarina of Time, hit up the trailer below.
