As many of you know, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild features an expansive open world full of treasure, shrines, and enemies to discover, with one of the largest game worlds to date. However, unlike other series such as The Elder Scrolls and Fallout, you have to travel the world alone without a companion. Something Bethesda’s aforementioned series lack is Multiplayer. Fooni, a member of the Wii U modding community, recently began working on a Breath of the Wild Multiplayer mod using the Cemu Wii U Emulator for PC.
The mod works by teleporting a NPC to the main player, applying Link’s in-game model to it, and then letting a second player control it. However, it requires the Cemu emulator to be running in 2 clients at once, which is currently extremely unstable, and currently has many gameplay and UI issues that need to be worked out, such as how shrines will be handled and how inventories will work. There is also always the chance that Nintendo could shut down the mod much in the same way they shut down many fan-made Zelda projects in the past. The mod is still in its very early stages, but it is still amazing to see this proof-of-concept being worked on.
But what do you guys think? Would you like to use this mod in the future? What features do you think would be cool that you would to see added? Let us know in the comments below!
