THE LEGEND OF ZELDA TV Series In The Works With CASTLEVANIA's Adi Shankar In Talks To Produce

Fans have wondered if they'd ever see an adaptation of The Legend Of Zelda, and now it seems Nintendo's incredibly popular fantasy video game is coming to the small screen. Find out more after the jump...

Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda is being adapted for television, with Castlevania's Adi Shankar in talks to produce.

The Wrap broke the news after Shankar took to Instagram to tease the project, revealing that he was “working with an iconic Japanese gaming company to adapt one of their iconic video game series into a series.” The report does not mention whether this adaptation will be live-action or animated or which network has picked it up, but hopefully we'll find out soon.

There can't be many people that haven't heard of Zelda, but for the uninitiated the games are set in the fictional land of Hyrule, and tell the story of an adventurer named Link (who looks a lot like an elf but is actually a member of the Hylian race) as he attempts to rescue Princess Zelda from the clutches of the evil wizard, Ganon.

The games have spawned everything from comics, to toys, to a short lived animated series, and Zelda is one of the most popular, revered properties out there.
