As many of you know the Legend of Zelda is one of the most popular video game series to have ever been made. The Ocarina of Time is probably the most popular game in the series having a total of 7.6 million copies sold during it’s lifetime. One of the most iconic features of the Ocarina of Time is when you open a chest.
As you go to open a mysterious chest a tune starts to play. This tune causes anticipation and suspense. When the tune hits it’s climax Link holds the item he has found over his head in victory and a triumphant score is played. You feel accomplished for just opening a chest and holding an item.
So the goal for to day is to recreate that here. So equip Master Sword and grab you Hylian Shield, you have some items to collect!
