Mod makes Luigi the star of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

I mean, they both love the color green...

Tired of Link being the hero in The Legend of Zelda series? One modder certainly is, which is why he's chosen another hero in green to take the lead in Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

As you can see in the video above, a new mod for Breath of the Wild takes out Link and puts Luigi in the starring role. He might seem a little out of place in the Zelda universe, but we have no doubt Luigi is up to the task!

Telling Lies creator says The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was one of the game's biggest influences

The whole truth

Telling Lies isn't your traditional video game, as it's an FMV investigative thriller game with non-linear storytelling. That's pretty far from what most people would consider a traditional game, but that doesn't mean there weren't traditional influences. In an interview with NintendoEverything, creator Sam Barlow reveals that Zelda: Breath of the Wild played a big part in development.

I had a lot of influences! But really the biggest were Zelda: Breath of the Wild and The Conversation. Zelda, well it’s the only game I can think of where the freedom feels so generous and genuine — the game is so player-centric, but it delivers on that. It’s the opposite of most open world games in allowing players to go wherever they want and that being truly satisfying. A masterpiece! I was aiming for a narrative game that had that sense of freedom and generosity. And with the movie The Conversation — it’s a story about obsession, surveillance and a man who becomes so focused on a specific recording, whose subtext and meaning transforms as he listens to it over and over again. And there’s a sequence involving a tape with a very clunky, analogue set of reels and buttons that really informed how tactile and hands-on we wanted the video watching interface to feel in the game.

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild LEGO set hits 5,000 supporters on the LEGO Ideas website

We're getting there

Earlier this week, we posted about a potential Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild LEGO set that was up on the LEGO Ideas website. That set needs to reach 10k supporters in order to be pitched to Nintendo/LEGO, but there was another hurdle to overcome before that. The set needed to hit 5k supporters within 6 months, or else it would be removed from the LEGO Ideas site.

It looks like people are really into this set, as just 5 days after sharing the news, the set now has over 5k supporters. That definitely takes a bit of the pressure off, but there's still more work to be done. Again, the 10k mark is the REAL milestone to push for, as that's the only way this thing has a real shot at seeing release. You can support the set with your vote here.

Another Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild LEGO set hits the LEGO Ideas website

LEGO Link needs your help!

While Nintendo and LEGO might be working together on LEGO Super Mario, Nintendo fans have been yearning for some more traditional LEGO sets for years now. Time and time again, fans have come up with some amazing ideas for Nintendo LEGO sets, but they never seem to come to fruition. Perhaps the latest efforts have a shot at breaking through.

The LEGO Ideas website is a place for fans to submit their dream LEGO sets, and user BrickGallery has cooked up a Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild set that focuses on Hyrule Castle. The set includes pieces for the castle, multiple Guardians, and even Calamity Ganon.

In order to be considered, the set will need 10,000 votes. Before we get to that point, the set needs 5,000 votes within the next 6 months. It's sitting at 2,400+ votes at time of posting, so it's just about halfway to the first milestone. If you want to see this set put up for consideration, make sure to log in and cast your vote here.

Twitch chat helps lead Link to victory in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Twitch chat does it again

Over the years, Twitch viewers have come to tackle all sorts of games by inputting commands via Twitch chat. It all started with Pokemon Red/Blue, and today we see that Twitch chat has managed to best The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild...with a little help.

Streamer Pointcrow teamed up with his Twitch chat to see if they could make their way through Breath of the Wild and take out Ganon. The stream ran for about 25 hours, and Twitch chat was in control for roughly 17 of those hours. Link died 80 times altogether, but with some input from Pointcrow during the stream, Twitch chat managed to land the final blow on Ganon and claim victory. You can see some highlights from the stream above.
