Expert modder Waikuteru has created a masterpiece the proportions of which could only be made possible through two of Nintendo’s most-loved franchises. Waikuteru, a YouTuber who focuses mostly on Breath of the Wild modifications, released this magnificent amalgamation at the end of 2020 — and, if you ask us, it hasn’t racked up nearly enough attention yet.
Waikuteru’s mod will look somewhat familiar to anyone who’s played 2017’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, as it borrows both the game’s graphic stylings and its fighting mechanisms. This isn’t your average shrine, though: in it, you’ll face baddies from another beloved Nintendo game, Super Mario 64.
Waikuteru made the ingenious move of bringing Whomp’s Fortress, one of the most iconic parts of Super Mario 64 to the Zelda universe. It’s an uncanny experience, to be sure, but one we relish for that very reason.
