In the short, short history of Dark Side of the Web, I have typically introduced our faithful readers to the latest and greatest in internet-only horror entertainment. But horror isn’t all we do here at Into-The-Dark, so when I came across a web series that mashes up the Legend of Zelda with an old-fashioned western, I felt compelled to pass it along.
A Fist Full of Rupees is a three-part web series produced by The Game Station, “Maker Studios’ premiere gaming network, featuring 200+ YouTube-based channels that showcase content for all gaming genres.” The series stars Lisa Foiles as Miss Zelda, Rawn as Colonel Ganon, TJ Smith as Link as well as special guests, Jesse Cox and Brooke “Dodger” Leigh.
TGS doesn’t offer a lot of details on A Fist Full of Rupees, but hey, it’s Zelda – what more do you need to know? The series is set to debut today (8/7/2012), and you just need to subscribe to their YouTube channel to watch it: http://www.youtube.com/user/TheGameStation
