A new Legend of Zelda mod has been posted on YouTube combining two classic games; The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. The video showcases Link traveling through Hyrule from Ocarina of Time, but with the visual aesthetics of the cel-shaded Wind Waker.
There are plenty of remarkable modders and artists in the online community, particularly within Nintendo and Zelda game fandoms. Thanks to the magic of the IP and the nostalgia of the property, there are nearly endless opportunities. This particular mod combines two of the best Zelda games of all time, and it does so in a rather impressive fashion.
YouTuber BigSharkZ recently uploaded a video recreating The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time using The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. It is quite magical to see the textures upgraded to such a degree. In fact, many fans are asking for Zelda games to be remastered in HD for the Switch, and this mod is a reminder in some ways as to what that could look like, regardless of the idea that it combines two Zelda games into one.
The mod even takes ideas directly from The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, including things like crawling around army style, which is something that veterans of the GameCube Zelda title are familiar with. In fact, the animation, sound effects, and more are all plucked out of Wind Waker, while the world itself is The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
Along with seeing Link running through Hyrule field or fighting off enemies, the mod also allows Malon from Lon Lon Ranch to be playable, which is certainly a big change from the original game. Depending on the mod, some are more silly and fun, and others are more based on performance enhancements. A recent Ocarina of Time mod allowed the game to run in 4k and 60 fps, for example, which is quite different than a mod that allows Malon to be playable using a Wind Waker-type model.
There is a near-constant craving for all things Zelda within the gaming community. This wonderful and silly mod video has hit nearly a quarter of a million views since releasing only ten days ago as of this writing, which is quite remarkable. Whether it is a nostalgia for Zelda games of old or a yearning for the next title in the series, the fans of Zelda are always looking for more.
Nintendo fans rejoiced when the company finally broke its long silence and came out with a Nintendo Direct earlier this year. It was a pretty successful Direct at that, delighting fans with new titles like Splatoon 3 and returns to old spinoff series like Mario Golf: Super Rush. However, what fans were really waiting for was news on how the company planned on celebrating The Legend of Zelda's 35th anniversary. 2021 is expected to be a huge year for the franchise, and to many fans, it's obvious how Nintendo should celebrate. Hopes are high that Nintendo will finally address and possibly even release The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2.
