It’s rather jarring to see the Mushroom Kingdom’s most pitiful villain in Nintendo’s prettiest game of the year, but if Luigi can star in his own games so can Waluigi, just don’t blame me if every Guardian, Hinox and Bokoblin can spot you a mile off. Breath of the Wild modders have been busy adding Minecraft characters, replacing the game’s Hinox with Shrek skins, and even making Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas’ Carl Johnson a playable character.
And yes, there are some seriously awesome Breath of the Wild mods that you can download right now, that range from really heckin’ useful, to downright strange. Because you can play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on PC – check out the video below to show you exactly how from the wizards over on the YouTube Channel strangely named “literally a dead channel” – you can bet your bottom dollar that there are mods for it. Modder Fooni is currently working on an ambitious mod that will allow two player local co-op in Breath of the Wild. However, it’s currently unclear how co-op will impact things like talking to NPCs or entering shrines and dungeons, but it looks as though you’ll be able to run around Hyrule with your best bud sooner than later. This mod simply adds a bunch of customisations to Link’s skin, eye and hair colour to best fit your preferences.
The Skyrim modding community may have beaten Hefty by a few years, but the sentient engine has never looked so happy to be part of Link’s grand adventure. Link may not be much of a talker nor does he spend his days playing Gwent, but he does look rather dashing in his new Witcher gear. Link has vanquished more bad guys than you can shake a Deku Stick at, and while it’s fun to play as the Hero of Time, it’s often nice to mix things up. It was only a matter of time that the modding community gave the Butcher of Bokoblin a more fitting look. While players can just as easily use Cryonis and freeze-and-jump their way across bodies of water, it’s just faster (and more defensive) to don this full set.
You can even use the Mirror Shield from Ocarina of Time. I personally love the dynamic music in Breath of the Wild and feel it helps to truly immerse me in my surroundings, but if you can’t stand the silence, then this mod will have you humming the Hyrule Field theme in no time. The sheer amount of freedom and experimentation in Breath of the Wild is vast, and with the arrival of mods this level of creativity has only increased. This mod replaces Breath of the Wild’s swords and shields with Deku, Kokiri and Ordon counterparts. Waluigi is the latest entry to Breath of the Wild’s colourful cast. In Breath of the Wild, much of Zelda’s appearance takes place in memories that players can help Link regain. In the original Breath of the Wild, players were able to switch Link’s clothes outside of his iconic tunic the series has been known for.
