Wind Waker Mod recreates Ocarina of Time
YouTuber magically recreates The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time by modifying The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker with models, animations and more.
A new Legend of Zelda the mod was released on YouTube combining two classic games; The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. The video features Link traveling through Hyrule from Ocarina of time, but with the visual aesthetic of cel-shaded Wind waker.
There are many notable modders and artists in the online community, especially within Nintendo and Zelda game fandoms. Thanks to the magic of intellectual property and the nostalgia for property, the opportunities are almost endless. This particular mod combines two of the best Zelda games of all time, and it does it in a pretty awesome way.
YouTuber BigSharkZ recently uploaded a video recreating The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time using The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. It’s quite magical to see the textures improved to such a degree. In fact, many fans ask Zelda games to be remastered in HD for the Switch, and this mod is sort of a reminder of what that could look like, regardless of the idea that it combines two Zelda games in one.
The mod even takes ideas straight from The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, including things like crawling in army style, which GameCube veterans Zelda title are familiar. In fact, the animation, sound effects and more are all taken from Wind waker, while the world itself is The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
Aside from seeing Link walk through Hyrule Field or battle 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 based more on performance improvements. A recent Ocarina of time mod allowed the game to run at 4k and 60 fps, for example, which is quite different from a mod that allows Malon to be playable using a Wind waker-type model.
There is an almost constant thirst for all things Zelda within the gaming community. This wonderful and silly mod video has reached almost a quarter of a million views since its release just ten days ago at the time of writing, which is quite remarkable. Whether it’s a nostalgia for Zelda games of yesteryear or desire for the next title in the series, fans of Zelda are always looking for more.
