Double Fine’s Hack ‘n’ Slash Trailer Pays Homage to Classic Zelda Rap


The next big thing coming from Double Fine Productions is Hack ā€˜nā€™ Slash, the puzzle adventure game about a young elven hacker who cheats and reprograms her way through a classic action/adventure game similar to the old top-down Legend of Zelda titles. Which makes it all the more appropriate that the game’s new trailer throws back to the hilariously awful 80s “Zelda Rap” commercial for the NES Legend of Zelda.

Although no such mention is made in the trailer, the title and description point out that Hack ‘n’ Slash will be available soon on Steam Early Access for PC, Mac, and Linux. A date isn’t specified, but in a PAX East update over on the Double Fine website the release window is narrowed down to within “a matter of weeks.”
