Backlit Legend of Zelda NES case mod

I grew up playing the Legend of Zelda on the NES and to this day it holds a special place in my heart. I created this as a way to celebrate the 25th Anniversary and in a way says “thanks” for all the great times I had. Check out the gallery after the break.


Link lights up when the system is powered on! I made the color scheme try and represent the original box art – mainly gold, a fair amount of silver, with slight accents of red.

Special thanks to “Custom NES Guy” aka “Jayrod2″ for the paint job! Make sure to check out his youtube channel to see lots of examples of his mad painting skills.

    Is there any chance you’d make/sell another Zelda one?

    Just stumbled upon your website. Do you ever do other case mods on other consoles? Like the SNES or Genesis. Bet you can do a tricked out Genesis that’s done in NES color scheme. Do you have any videos/ tutorials/ Instructables of your work (which is very superb)?

  3. Mother of god… I wish I knew how to do this.

    I am working on a Super Mario Bros. 3 one right now. When it’s finished do you mind if I show a link on your page of the finished project?
