TGS’ 'FISTFUL OF RUPEES' is the Zelda / Western mash-up you weren’t aware you needed
The Gaming Station (TGS) is at it again with another video game / movie mash-up. This time they take us to the era of the wild wild west. This isn’t manifest destiny or even American expansionism though, this is Hyrule.
The moment I realized FISTFUL OF RUPEES was a Zelda based Western, I literally said “why has no one thought of this before” due to how perfect it works. Link is your silent hero type on a revenge mission seeking out Colonel Gannon. From the trailer, it appears that the triforce represents a treasure map. You got gun play, sword play, treasure, moblins, Navi, Zelda / Sheik, and a bunch of nostalgic one-liners from the Zelda franchise.
As part of a three part web series, this Zelda Western will debut on August 7th, 2012. That’s soon. Like, not even a week away sort of soon. After watching TGS’ Dr. Mario web series, I have infinite respect for them and just know they will nail this as well. Is it Tuesday yet?
