A joy shared is a joy doubled: A new split-screen mod that turns The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild into a couch co-op adventure is coming in a few days.
Although the title is probably one of the greatest games of all time even in single player mode, what could be more fun than exploring the vastness of the Kingdom of Hyrule with your friends. This is probably what modder Kribymimi thought, who breathes a completely fresh wind into the Breath of the Wild. The modification allows us to play on one console with up to four people at the same time.
Breath of the Wild couch co-op mod coming July 29th
The split-screen mod for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which was released in 2017, is for the time being a beta version, but the features are already impressive. YouTuber Waikuteru shows us a whole eight minutes of gameplay on his channel. In it, the two links first shoot each other down with their flaming arrows, before overcoming various obstacles, defeating bosses together and generally exploring the still beautiful world.
The almost unlimited possibilities that the game offers us even without the modifications look even more fun with two, three or even four players. While you can certainly use the combined strength tactically, for example to distract guards or surround larger opponents, it is above all the multi-layered gameplay elements in the open, never still world that should bring even more joy together.
Project still in its infancy – no official Switch version
Since there is no multi-headed, professional development team behind the split-screen mod, you should probably ignore a few small problems that can occur when using the beta version. However, developer Kirbymimi promises help via its Discord server, which can also be used to report any bugs.
If you also want to enjoy The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild together in the future, we warn you in advance to be on the safe side: The mod is by no means an officially licensed extension from Nintendo. In order to be able to play the co-op mode, you need either a corresponding emulator on the PC or a hacked switch console. As is well known, the Japanese game company penalizes both, which can result in your online account being blocked.
