1UP: Link Can Be Created In 3D Dot Game Heroes - Video

1UP's Kat Bailey writes,

"3D Dot Game Heroes plays like a tribute to The Legend of Zelda, complete with extremely similar enemies and gameplay. It has its own unique hero and story though, which slightly detaches it from Nintendo's storied franchise. It doesn't have to be that way though.

As you can see in this video, it's possible to go into the character creator and make a hero of your own. As always seems to happens with games like these, this enterprising designer opted to create Link.

We've got some more videos up at GameVideos that show Link actually fighting, so head on over and check them out. No doubt we'll soon be seeing a huge range of classic characters being voxelized, from Mario to Master Chief.

No word on a North American release yet, but Sony has said that the localization is inevitable. In the meantime, you'll have plenty of time to plan the perfect recreation of your favorite character."

The story is too old to be commented.

Nintendo of America is waiting to drop a nuclear lawsuit on this game when it crosses the ocean. You can bet your ass.

Nintendo wouldn't waste their time with a lawsuit...they would be laughed out of the courtroom. People have created Nintendo game levels in LittleBigPlanet. Sony just isn't allowed to offer infringing user-generated content for download. But there's no way to ban content editors, and as long as Sony doesn't aid the distribution of offending content, it's not their problem.

As for the game's similarities to Zelda in general, it would be protected by parody laws. Even without that, what is there to protect? The original Zelda was a game about an elf with a sword who saved a princess from a wizard...I mean c'mon...there's nothing there to infringe upon.
