Well, known modder Kaze Emanuar– who has previously modded various Super Mario games– is once again creating fantastic fan content for classic Nintendo games. This time around, Kaze and a small team of talented folk have created a game for the Legend of Zelda franchise.
Made within the Ocarina of Time game engine, this mod is more than your standard fan creation. Kaze has created a fully-fledged game with a story as well as cut scenes to go with it. The game is titled The Legend of Zelda: The Missing Link as it is set between the two canon Zelda games Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask. There is familiarity within the mod- certain characters and equipment are recognizable- but the world that has been built, new items that are usable and explorable dungeons are all new. There is even new music with several composers being credited on the games website.
Nintendo has a bit of a reputation when it comes to fan-made content but I hope that they allow Kaze and the team behind this mod continue to do what they do. There is such creativity involved here as well as what must be a genuine love for the retro Legend of Zelda games. The talent and care that has gone into this mod is palpable and I hope they continue creating amazing content for us to enjoy.
