Classic Nintendo game gets a Westeros-inspired intro

Nintendo's Legend of Zelda gets a "Game of Thrones"-themed intro video. Because a Hero of Time always pays his debts.

"Game of Thrones" has a pretty epic intro video and theme song, so it's only fitting that everyone under the winter sun is adapting that theme for use by other popular franchises. We've already seen Mario get the "Game of Thrones" treatment, and today's remix takes another of Nintendo's most popular video game series, The Legend of Zelda, and gives it a Westeros-inspired intro.

The video, created by YouTube user The Pixel Kingdom, whisks us away to the magical kingdom of Hyrule with Link, Princess Zelda, and Ganondorf. As with the "Game of Thrones" intro, the various points of interest across Hyrule come to life, including the Sanctuary, Death Mountain, and Hyrule Castle itself.

It's a fitting tribute to the Hero of Time, who like the members of House Lannister, always pays his debts.
