Since its release, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has been praised in many a positive review for its ability to not only appease longstanding fans of the Nintendo franchise, but also for being able to offer an open-world experience that will appeal to practically anyone looking for a great game. However, despite the title’s near-universal acclaim from critics and fans alike, there are two folks who figured it was lacking a certain amount of devious charm, so they decided to add Waluigi to the game with a skin mod.
As seen below in the video courtesy of the YouTuber known as Brothy !, fans of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild can get a look at the modders Hefty and ZombieAli’s creation in action, as Waluigi stands in for Link in a wide variety of situations including an almost fatal battle with a Guardian, as well as a fun round of shield surfing. Not to mention, he even takes the time to stop and snap a few selfies with the Sheikah Slate.
For those wondering exactly how Hefty and ZombieAli managed to mod The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to add a Waluigi skin, it’s mostly thanks to the existence of the popular Wii U emulator for PC known as CEMU. As it so happens, another fan recently decided that the open-world RPG needed a dose of some street smarts, so they used the emulator to make a mod that adds Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas‘ Carl “CJ” Johnson into the game.
While the aforementioned skin mods for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild are definitely delightful, there are also a plethora of other more useful mods of which fans can take advantage that could bring added replay value to the title. For instance, there’s a master code mod that gives players the ability to spawn any item or character at any location, and there’s even a multiplayer mod in development. So, taking all of this into consideration, it’s really anyone’s guess as to what kind of mods The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild fans will conjure up next.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is available now for the Nintendo Switch and Wii U.
