Sadist recreates Faces of Evil and Wand of Gamelon in 3D

For reasons unknown, C4DNerd thought it necessary to recreate the Zelda CDi cinematics in 3D. Hylia save us...

Back in 1993, Nintendo paired up with Philips to make video games for the Philips CD-i, an interactive compact disk media player. The team-up was short-lived, as the games using Nintendo characters were terrible, and frankly there’s no reason to even bother picking them up — unless, of course, you’re a masochistic collector of all things Nintendo.

Despite this, YouTube user C4DNerd decided it was necessary to create this “HD Trailer” for a 3D version of Link: The Faces of Evil and Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon.

Why C4DNerd wanted to create this trailer is beyond reason, but here it is in all its terribly animated, poor camera work, and shoddy voice-acting glory. Of course, I’m not commenting on the creator’s work. In fact, C4DNerd has done a great job of mimicking the cutscenes perfectly. Unfortunately, the transition to 3D only serves to highlight just how bad the CD-i Legend of Zelda games were.

At least Link’s voice wasn’t as annoying as the 1989 The Legend of Zelda cartoon’s… right? I can’t be the only one who thinks so.
