Legend of Zelda gets a 'Game of Thrones'-themed opening sequence

A group of artists makes a pretty incredible intro for the Super Nintendo video game The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, fashioned after the clockwork opening theme of "Game of Thrones."

It's not the first time we've seen the Legend of Zelda series get a Westeros-style opening theme, but it just might be the prettiest. The video-game inspired video sketch comedy group Megasteakman released a new video on Tuesday giving the hit Super Nintendo game The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past the "Game of Thrones" treatment.

In the clip, the group took the world map from A Link to the Past, and animated it with the clockwork stylings from HBO's hit series "Game of Thrones."

Watch as locations like Hyrule Castle, Death Mountain and Kakariko Village come gorgeously to life thanks to VFX artists Kial Natale, Adamah VanArsdale and Edgar Abreu-Lanza. The music for this video was done by composer Mattia Cupelli, who took the "Game of Thrones" theme tune and gave it a bit of Zelda-inspired reimagining.

One thing's for sure, the fantasy world of Hyrule has never looked this gorgeous. Check out the video for yourself at the top of this post, then pick up your controller and transport yourself to Hyrule the traditional way.
