Dark Link and Link go toe-to-toe in a live-action The Legend of Zelda short

Link's Shadow, a live-action fan-film based on The Legend of Zelda franchise, entails an epic battle between the demonic Dark Link, Link and unsuspecting hunters.

"Three hunters in a forest discover that they have trapped a demon - Dark Link! An epic battle ensues as they try to prevent the murderous demon from reaching their village," the short's description states. "The elder clansman gathers his mana and casts a beacon in to the sky, hoping to summon Link to save them."

The four-minute short was created by production company Corridor Digital, with costume work by Mars Rising Films and music by Blake Robinson. Link was played by Geran Simpson (Police Guys) and Clint Jones of Pwnisher — who create video game-centric live action short films — portrayed Dark Link. Dan Thompson, the bearded hunter, created the weapons used in the short.

In collaboration with Ubisoft, Corridor Digital also created Cyber War, a live-action short set in the Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon universe. Cyber War told the story of Commander Bolt Lightning and his robot sidekick's battle to defeat a cyber virus.
