Zelda Christmas Swag

How many of you received Skyward Sword for Christmas? Ocarina of Time 3D, or even the limited edition Zelda 3DS? One man known as Mike didn’t get any of these, but he did score some Zelda treasure. And not only that, he got a Zelda adventure for Christmas.

You can read his story after the jump.

Mike shared his story with Kotaku:

It started with a box. In the box were a green hat and a satchel of rupees and a small note saying I could use the rupees to purchase an item from my sisters!

This item was The Master Sword! The sword had a new quest attached to it; defeat the beast in the laundry room!

The beast, of course, was my sisters’ dog dressed in Christmas attire. After I slew the beast (with a good old scratch behind the ear) I noticed the key tied to his neck, with a note attached. The next quest! Explore the dungeon beyond the white door! This clearly meant the garage. I entered the garage, wondering what I could possibly find hidden in its darkness. I stumbled upon a large chest (a 100-year old treasure chest) and in classic Zelda style, bent down and opened it without a second thought. As I did, my sisters played the “open chest” jingle on their phones, a nice touch! And inside the chest was the Hylian shield, a bottle marked “XXX” and a potion bottle, both filled with mead!

I thought this would conclude my truly amazing Zelda present…. that was until I saw my girlfriend, Erin, who had something just as special waiting for me. I opened her present to find a Zelda pouch, containing an Ocarina she had custom-painted, and a book… a hand-bound, home-made, suede book. And in this book was aged paper with hand-drawn Ocarina tabs for all the Ocarina songs from the game. Each page beautifully decorated with love and care. 

I don’t know about you guys, but I’d be thrilled to receive something like this! Even if you didn’t get quite as much Zelda goodness as Mike did for Christmas, let us know below if you received any Zelda goodies this year.

  • Well, I didn't receive any Zelda presents on the christmas morning, because in Mèxico we celebrate in a different way. On the 6th of January is when we receive our presents: from the 3 wise men. And I'm getting Oot and SS.

      It just depends on your traditions and what part of Mexico you live, in Chihuahua we get presents for Christmas and we just have dinner in the 6th of January 😀

      Happy Holidays!

      • Eee

        In DF children get presents indistinctly on the 25th of the 6th; tradition still acknowledges the Three Wise Men, although each year more and more people accept Santa Claus. Adults usually don't receive anything on the 6th but on the 25th, but obviously not from Santa.

  • Wish I could go on some epic quest as such to find treasure. :/

    I see there was a map of Skyrim in the chest also? Maybe Link got lost in his travels.

    • Eee

      Well, someone who doesn't appreciate and thanks the simple fact of receiving anything at all deserves to feel down. You're an egoist and inmature fool.

    I made Chu Jelly for my little bro for christmas (thanks geeky chef), and he got a wooden master sword. For my birthday this year, my sister made me a moon from Majora's Mask out of paper mache, and I also got a little wooden carved triforce. My little bro already has a wooden chest, a link costume, a hylian shield, link boots, a slingshot, fairies in bottles, navi and tatl (both clip to his hat or shoulder), dungeone keys, bombs, paper majora's mask, deku link, goron link and zora link masks (and he made himself an outfit for deku link that doesn't fit him anymore) and make up he uses to dress up like fierce diety all the time, a giants wallet (really big, used for trick or treating) and an ocarina of time that he is learning how to play. I'm sure there is more that I don't remember.

    My family did similar adventures in our neighborhood park to give him his gifts (me and my sister's boyfriend ambushed him as dark link and would leave items when we were defeated, leaving bottled fairy's by a pond) and It was really fun for all of us.

  • Eee
