My latest Gameboy build for @mikewallacedesign. I know he already posted it, but here’s a few extra pics of the layout progression. This was definitely a fun build and I can’t wait to do some more! #legendofzelda #legendofzeldabreathofthewild #breathofthewild #zelda #nintendo #nintendoswitch #hylianstribe #hylian #mastersword #link #princesszelda #gameboy #retrogaming
The Game Boy played host to countless top-tier franchises, including The Legend of Zelda. Artist RetroEtched is paying tribute to Zelda's numerous appearances on the Game Boy with a one-of-a-kind piece that brings the series to life in a whole new way.
In the Instagram post above, RetroEtched shared a look at how the whole project came together. The Game Boy itself was just a shell to begin with, so don't worry about a working Game Boy being gutted for this piece. The sword and plinth were custom modeled, and the Game Boy's screen void was filled with foam to seat everything together.
As we said, this is a one-of-a-kind piece, so you can snatch one for yourself. You can check out RetroEtched's Etsy shop though, where he sells some other Zelda-inspired items.
