Artist Creates Stunning Ocarina Of Time Custom Nintendo 64

Artist Vadu Amka has created a personalized Nintendo 64 dedicated to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. The console, which was a surprise for her friend's birthday, is an absolutely gorgeous re-imagining of one of gaming's most beloved consoles.

For this custom, Vadu decided to include the Spiritual Stones underneath the main logo on the front of the console, which she also reworked with a new font. In addition, the Hylian Shield was added to the top of the console, the switches, buttons, and ports were painted gold, and the entire console was given a layer of stone to make it look more ancient. She also put the Hylian Crest on the controllers. You can see more shots of the Ocarina of Time N64 below.

Vadu Amka is no stranger to personalized video game consoles. You can check out her other creations, including a Half-Life Dreamcast, a Wind Waker Gamecube, a Castlevania Super NES, and a Pokémon Red/Blue Game Boy on her site. She also has some creations up for sale at her Kochi Gallery storefront
