Deviantart user Vihola created these stunning voxel renders based on The Legend of Zelda and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. If you’re unfamiliar with voxel art, it’s basically where 2D pixels are turned into 3D blocks. Think the NES Zeldas, but Minecraft-style.

Vihola used a program called Qubicle Constructor, added his own lighting and rendering and finished the piece in Photoshop. Hit the jump for a Zelda II voxel!

I would love for Nintendo remake the games like this. They have the 3D Classics series on the 3DS eShop, which adds layers and brings 2D sprites forward, but a whole adventure created in this fully 3D voxel style would be amazing.
