Nintendo's refusal to step into the "next" generation of hardware means we're years away from seeing a high definition Zelda game. Still, a man can dream...

These images were generated by Zelda fan Ryu-Gi, using Garry's Mod, a PC utility which allows users to import and edit game characters within Valve's Source engine.
