Forget Great Britain , Westeros and Azeroth : our hearts belong to Hyrule.

Minecraft Hyrule, that is (although Hyrule in general is pretty great). Minecrafter Kezsonaj has just finished a six-month project recreating the entire world, Ocarina of Time-style, in Minecraft — both pre- and post-destruction, side by side. The only thing missing is the adult dungeons.

"Everything in this Save I built from scratch," Kezsonaj wrote on the Minecraft forum. "From the Interiors to the landscape, and to the castles and the Great Deku Tree. This is for the community, for all the Zelda Fans out there that love Ocarina of Time. The build took me quite a while. I have dedicated a lot of my time to building and polishing of this map and I hope all of you enjoy playing in it. The map will be released soon for everyone to play on it."

Kezsonaj did not state how many blocks he used, but that information, we assume, will be revealed when the build is available for download, in around a week or so.

If you absolutely can't wait to get in on some Zelda Minecraft action, though... it turns out that Kezsonaj is one busy Zelda fan. He has also built most of Twilight Princess, and is working on Majora's Mask, Wind Waker, and a Zelda Minecraft server combining all four maps.

Head over to the Minecraft forums for more images of Hyrule (Ocarina of Time version) and to bookmark the page in anticipation of the download pack.

Update: The ownership of this work is in dispute. See Reddit threads here and here, and the Project Hyrule website for more information.
