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.
