Streets named after Zelda, Mario, Sonic in neighborhood for young home buyers

A new residential development in the neighborhood of Arcosur in Zaragoza, Spain will be naming its streets after video games and video game characters in an attempt to attract young first-time home buyers. These names will include an homage to the game franchise The Legend of Zelda, which has been recreated in multiple manga, including one by Kamen Rider creator Shotaro Ishinomori (1992's Zelda no Densetsu, whose 2005 remake by Akira Himekawa is licensed by VIZ Media in North America).

Other video games to be given street names are Super Mario Bros., Sonic the Hedgehog, and Space Invaders.
