One Nintendo fan has spent seven years building a Nintendo-based version of Risk

There's no better way to re-experience the worlds of retro Nintendo games than by taking them over — and thankfully one fan is working to make that a reality. The fan made creation is a custom version of Risk, where the real-world countries have been replaced with places like Hyrule from The Legend of Zelda series and Dinosaur Land from Super Mario World. It's quite detailed with six continents to take over (as well as a few air-based locations) and according to its creator it took seven years and three iterations to get to this point. Unfortunately, there are no plans to share this with Nintendo fans the world over, at least right now. "It's not that I don't want the rest of the world to enjoy my game," the creator says, "but I'm concerned about legal ramifications."
