Nintendo, PLEASE, Make This Zelda Box Set A Reality

Nintendo, PLEASE, Make This Zelda Box Set A Reality

Last year, Zelda’s 25th anniversary came and went with little fanfare from Nintendo. What people wanted was a nice big commemorative box set. What we got was…a concert tour and a 3DS.

Designer Jason Nowak knows what we wanted, though, and took a crack at designing it. The results are…beautiful. A wooden box, a little book, some discs collecting the games in the series. Something that pays respects to the series while also letting you, well, play the series.

If it also played the Zelda chest theme every time it opened, I’d start cutting out semi-vital organs to raise the cash to buy one.

I remember in a previous life, as an EBGames/GameStop employee, I was only once ever explicitly told not to touch, sell to friends or even borrow a game. And that was the Zelda bonus disc on GameCube that collected what was at the time every major entry in the series.

I’d thought, at the time, it had been pressed onto solid gold. Nearly 10 years later, I’m convinced it was.



  • You work at EB……. seriously this does explain a lot….

    The more we get from you the more we learn why your a below average journalist.

    We can help you if you let us.

  • My name is Luke Plunkett and I am a functional retard.

    It actually makes me sad that this guy can keep his job, especially considering how shitty America’s job economy is and knowing there is probably a guy right around the corner who would actually deserve it

  • Don’t like it, go to another site rather than bitch and complain like a bunch of useless twats. If for some reason, you can’t resist insulting the journalists and their works, then at least make the criticism constructive.

    I’m aware many of you will take this and turn it around in jest, and congratulations for doing something every single other person thought of.

    • Yeah I’m kind of sick of seeing this garbage on all of Luke’s posts…. They’ll nit pick at anything.

      • This is kind of cool but Luke and Brian seem to post a heap of cosplay / useless articles that have the most tenuous connections to gaming sometimes.

        People only get heated (sometimes it goes too far) because they come to Kotaku to read interesting gaming related news but instead have to sift through rubbish for the gems.
