An idea for a Legend of Zelda LEGO set has reached the review stage on LEGO Cuusoo, a platform that allows fans to submit ideas to the toy manufacturer in the hopes of seeing them brought to reality.
Viewers can vote for sets they'd like to see brought to life, and earning 10,000 votes entitles a project to be reviewed by LEGO to see if it's feasible. A set called The Legend of Zelda: Iron Knuckle Enounter has recently reached the 10,000 vote threshold and will be part of the next review cycle.
This is not the first time a Zelda set has been reviewed, but none have ever made it through to production. One of many potential reasons for this is an issue with licensing; Nintendo has historically been very careful when it comes to letting other companies create merchandise based on the developer's intellectual property.
However, Nintendo announced last week that they would be changing their approach to licensing. In an investor briefing, the company said that "we will actively expand our character licensing business, including proactively finding appropriate partners."
This in no way guarantees the Legend of Zelda LEGO set will come to fruition, as licensing is just one consideration for the toy maker. However, Nintendo's change of attitude on licensing could be the factor that gives the latest Zelda project on LEGO Cuusoo a chance at success.
