The Legend Of Zelda Collides With Game Of Thrones In Mashup Intro

Mashups have become an artistic genre unto themselves. And, like any style, there are good works and those you might just want to shuffle past. This is one of the better ones.

I’m not just a fan of this because it uses my favorite version of Hyrule (the one from A Link to the Past), but because it also does some smart things with musical flourishes. The video also doesn’t overstay its welcome at just a hair over one minute.

Game of Hyrule was created by YouTube channel Megasteakman. The team’s videos feature a heavy dose of sketch comedy featuring pop culture, games, and movies.

For more Game of Thrones, check out previous coverage, including the intro sequence created in LittleBigPlanet, an intro based on Skyrim, and the theme song sung by Portal 2's turret chorus. If you’re looking for something a little more authentic, our review of episode 1, episode 2, and episode 3 of Telltale’s Game of Thrones series might fit the bill.
