A very widespread practice in the field of video games, modding is a great tool to touch the code of the game itself, which allows modifying and therefore improving, or even adding content to the basic version. So, Skyrim It might not have been played that much yet if it hadn’t been for a plethora of mods to go along with it. We will also think about Counter strike, born from the modification of Half life. And of course, the MOBA genre would never have seen the light of day without the mod. Warcraft iii, Defense of the Ancients (Dota).
And despite the examples cited above, the mod isn’t just about PC games. This is what we will see with a Mod dedicated to unite Breath of the Wild and Super Mario 64.
Developed by the Waikuteru team, this Mod proposes to explore a new sanctuary that faithfully reproduces the famous Whomp Fortress. Although using only BotW elements, Waiketeru managed to instill the spirit of one of Mario 64’s iconic levels. Therefore, the moving blocks, the flag to climb and the end-of-level star are present. And of course, we are accompanied by the cult music of the level, which has become a symbol of this mythical game.
A huge success for the Waiketeru team who are not on their first try in terms of modding. If we explore the YouTube channel of the same name, we can discover a mod that adds a sanctuary to Breath of the Wild, which has an air of a dungeon from previous license titles. In other words, longer and more complex than the BotW sanctuaries.
If adding unofficial mods doesn’t scare you, you can go to the Youtube channel of Waiketeru to find the links of these two mods, available on Switch and WII U, in the description of the respective videos. A good reason (if necessary) to return to this already legendary game that is Breath of the Wild.
