Mario Kart Wii's Luigi Circuit remade in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Breath of the Wild Ride

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is over 3 years old now, but people are still diving deep into the game to find new areas, discover glitches, push for speedrunning records, and more. Then there's a group of players who spend their time cooking up brand-new content for the game. That's exactly what you'll see in the video above.

Modder and YouTube user Waikuteru decided to use his tech savvy to create a Mario Kart experience within The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Waikuteru transported Mario Kart Wii's Luigi Circuit into Zelda: Breath of the Wild, giving Link something brand-new to experience with his fancy motorcycle. How do modders even come up with this stuff?!

Mipha and Revali amiibo reprints on the way, Joker amiibo in production

The latest amiibo updates

Nintendo's Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act page is the go-to place to find out what's up with amiibo, and it has once again given us some information on what to expect in the near future.

First up, we have confirmation that the Joker amiibo is officially in production. That shouldn't surprise anyone who's been following the news on Smash Bros. Ultimate amiibo. It's the other listings on the CPSIA page that might be surprising to some.

Nintendo is also working on reprints for some Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild amiibo. Both Mipha and Revali’s amiibo will be getting another round of releases in the near future, which most likely means that Urbosa and Daruk will get their shot as well. We'll keep an eye on the CPSIA page for more info.

LEGO and Nintendo super-fan Brixter has cooked up an absolutely amazing LEGO tribute to Link from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Brixter is hopeful that this idea could go beyond a fan creation, which is why he submitted it to the LEGO Ideas website. If you click over to the site and cast your vote, you could help get this project in front of LEGO's eyes, and they might consider trying to officially release it.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild with 30 different mods is pure insanity

Absolute madness

Stretched-out Link, battling Zant with a Diamond Sword from Minecraft. Welcome to the wild world of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild mods.

People have been creating mods for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild pretty much since day one, and there's now a huge amount of strange, weird, and off-the-wall mods now available. In the video above, PointCrow decides to cram a whole bunch of those mods into one gameplay session, and it makes for a Zelda experience unlike any other. Check out the chaos for yourself!

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time's Lon Lon Ranch transported into Breath of the Wild

Looking better than ever

I guess this is the new trend with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild! In recent weeks, we've seen modders bring elements from other Zelda games into Breath of the Wild. Just recently, we saw the Sandship from Skyward Sword plopped down into Breath of the Wild, and now we have something even further back in Zelda's history.

The video above showcases Lon Lon Ranch from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, fully transported to Breath of the Wild. The game has a spot called Ranch Ruins, which most likely is a nod to Lon Lon Ranch. Now we can see what the ranch would have looked like in all its Breath of the Wild glory!

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild mod adds in Samus and her gunship

You, Samus, are the hero!

While Nintendo fans do their best to wait patiently for new details on Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, some players are still finding new ways to make fun in the first game. That includes unique mods that completely change the way the game plays, or in this instance, add in a completely different hero.

Modder Yainskofso has shown off his skill with an amazing mod that takes out Link and puts Samus in his place. She even brought her gunship around to travel across Hyrule! Looks like she's more than capable of handling Link's job!

Mod makes Luigi the star of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

I mean, they both love the color green...

Tired of Link being the hero in The Legend of Zelda series? One modder certainly is, which is why he's chosen another hero in green to take the lead in Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

As you can see in the video above, a new mod for Breath of the Wild takes out Link and puts Luigi in the starring role. He might seem a little out of place in the Zelda universe, but we have no doubt Luigi is up to the task!

Telling Lies creator says The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was one of the game's biggest influences

The whole truth

Telling Lies isn't your traditional video game, as it's an FMV investigative thriller game with non-linear storytelling. That's pretty far from what most people would consider a traditional game, but that doesn't mean there weren't traditional influences. In an interview with NintendoEverything, creator Sam Barlow reveals that Zelda: Breath of the Wild played a big part in development.

I had a lot of influences! But really the biggest were Zelda: Breath of the Wild and The Conversation. Zelda, well it’s the only game I can think of where the freedom feels so generous and genuine — the game is so player-centric, but it delivers on that. It’s the opposite of most open world games in allowing players to go wherever they want and that being truly satisfying. A masterpiece! I was aiming for a narrative game that had that sense of freedom and generosity. And with the movie The Conversation — it’s a story about obsession, surveillance and a man who becomes so focused on a specific recording, whose subtext and meaning transforms as he listens to it over and over again. And there’s a sequence involving a tape with a very clunky, analogue set of reels and buttons that really informed how tactile and hands-on we wanted the video watching interface to feel in the game.
