It is not the first time that a Zelda goes multiplayer, but the idea that a title like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild may become so is another thing.
The masterpiece for Nintendo Switch, which you can find on Amazon, is the quintessential solo adventure, but with this new mod it becomes something new.
A mod that was born, in a certain sense, at the end of 2021 with an initiative by a very famous youtuber who put a large sum of money up for grabs to produce it amidst controversy.
Work on the mod has been going on for a long time, until a very recent release that has also caught the attention of Nintendo.
As IGN US reports, in fact, last April 4th the multiplayer mod of Breath of the Wild was published by PointCrow, the famous youtuber.
The mod was created by AlexMangue and Sweet, who claimed the $10k reward last July and then they started working together with PointCrow to complete the mod and make it available to the public.
PointCrow had previously showcased the mod in multiple videos, using it to play hide-and-seek and do other activities around Hyrule, although it appears a number of new features have been added since its last video showcasing the mod.
The mod, which is available for the Wii U version of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, didn’t like Nintendo much though.
Incredibly disappointed that @NintendoAmerica has decided to block my videos on Breath of the Wild. It’s the love for the community and the innovation that we bring to it that has kept it alive & brought new people to love the Zelda series. I hope you reverse your decision soon. pic.twitter.com/CtvjpmBrs3

«Incredibly disappointed that Nintendo of America has decided to block my videos on Breath of the Wild», comments PointCrow showing a screenshot of his channel with blocked videos.
The Big N has in fact intervened to block copyright infringements for the videos in question, even if the youtuber has made many other videos on the game and has never been affected over the years.
In the meantime, PointCrow and his fans can console themselves by studying Tears of the Kingdom , since the first interesting theories are already emerging.
