Girard Tecson of Dayside Productions really loves The Legend of Zelda and Hong Kong crime dramas starring Jackie Chan, Jet Li, and Donnie Yen. One day, the New York-based filmmaker began to wonder what it would look like if you combined those two things.
Tecson doesn’t have to wonder any longer, because he recently completed Chinese Legend of Zelda, a fan film that answers that very question. It’s a little goofy, but Tecson put quite a lot of work into the project, and it’s certainly fun in a Friday afternoon sort of way to see “Officer Link” take on Ganon’s underworld operation.
The filmmaker isn’t done mixing together classic video games and Hong Kong crime dramas, as he also revealed he plans to tackle Chinese Mega Man next.
