In the last couple of months, those PC players who have been emulating The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild have been running wild with mod content for the game. Although some of the fan-made content is aiming to make revolutionary changes to the title, such as the in-development mod to add multiplayer to Breath of the Wild, others have taken a less serious approach, such as one that adds Sanic to the game.
That’s right: this The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild mod does not allow players to check out Sega’s popular mascot, but instead his somewhat less famous cousin. For the uninitiated, Sanic is a meme that appeared back in 2010 after a tutorial video on how to draw ‘Sanic Hegehog’ took the internet by storm. Now, this MS Paint creation has made the leap into Hyrule, courtesy of modder Hefty.
Of course, this mod isn’t for everyone – users will need to be emulating Breath of the Wild on PC – but the skin will definitely serve a purpose for those looking to step it up in the world of Link and Zelda. Here’s a quick video showing off everyone’s second favorite speedy hedgehog in action.
This is far from the only time that a somewhat bizarre choice for a mod has appeared in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Nintendo purists would no doubt rest easier, for instance, with the Waluigi Breath of the Wild mod, since at least it’s another Nintendo property. However, it truly seems like there’s something for everyone, so gamers who would like to see Grand Theft Auto‘s CJ in Breath of the Wild also have that option available to them.
Of course, some may think that these Breath of the Wild mods are out of control, particularly after seeing a Minecraft-themed Link take down Shrek in a move that could be considered more than a little disturbing. However, it’s fair to say that as long as the laughs keep coming these mods will keep being made. Let’s see what other creative mods the community can come up with.
