The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild launched earlier this year to critical acclaim, and while most are happy to dive into the game’s massive open world, some have decided to add their own content. A group of fans has begun work on a multiplayer mod for the game.
Creator Fooni shared that they’ve been building the co-op mod with a couple of other team-members. The mod – which is still very early in development – is running on an emulated version of the Wii U game, via PC. Below is a split-screen image, via GameSpot:
Currently, the mod only works on a single PC, requiring two versions of the emulator to be open at once. Reddit user S1ash says that there are a number of issues to work through, including UI and gameplay tweaks.
According to Fooni, the mod works by teleporting an NPC to the main player’s location, and then swapping out its model with Link’s. They believe it could be several years before the mod is finished.
Nintendo doesn’t take kindly to fan projects. Standalone game Pokemon Uranium was shelved due to legal threats from the Japanese company. A fan remake of Metroid 2 was also pulled for similar reasons.
