Breath Of The Wild Split Screen Multiplayer Brings A Whole New Hyrule

Breath Of The Wild Split Screen Multiplayer Brings A Whole New Hyrule

Two Links are better than one, as a split screen version of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is finally here. With Nintendo's 2017 game being the biggest to grace the long-running Zelda franchise, it can sometimes be a bit lonely out there in Hyrule, thankfully, multiplayer makes sure you have someone to help rescue that titular princess. 

In general, Zelda games are held in pretty high regard. Probably depending on how old you are, there's a debate on whether 1998's Ocarina of Time or Breath of the Wild is the franchise's crowning glory. Either way, both outings are held as some of the best video games of all time. Would multiplayer have made them even better though?

What Is Breath Of The Wild's Split Screen Multiplayer?

You might remember last year when we reported on YouTuber PointCrow offering a whopping $10,000 to anyone who could create a working Breath of the Wild multiplayer. With no official port from Nintendo - and the House that Mario built being notoriously strict with its rights - this wasn't one for the faint-hearted.

Someone managed to crack the BotW multiplayer, but taking it one step further, others have nailed a split screen version that makes us feel a bit like we're playing Mario Kart. Although it's admittedly not perfect, Kirbymimi's Breath of the Wild split screen multiplayer lets you and your pals team up to stop Calamity Ganon. 

Footage of the split screen has been shared on YouTube by Waikuteru, and as you can see, it's pretty impressive. The mod will be available in beta from July 29, meaning you don't have long to wait until you can paraglide into action with your BFF. This isn't the first multiplayer mod from Kirbymimi, and we've previously seen up to four player be able to jump into Hyrule. 

 

When Is Breath Of The Wild 2 Out?

Five years after Breath of the Wild broke records and became a flagship for the Switch, we're gearing up for Breath of the Wild 2. Although the much-hyped sequel was supposed to debut this year, it's since been pushed to 2023... we just don't know when. In fact, we don't know much about Breath of the Wild 2 - including what its official title is

There are plenty of rumours flying around about the story, including the idea that you'll be able to play as Zelda or even that the Link we saw in the trailer is actually a young and heroic Ganon. Unfortunately, Nintendo isn't willing to give anything away just yet. It's possible that multiplayer will be part of Breath of the Wild 2, but to be honest, we imagine there will dollar signs ringing in Nintendo's eyes for another Hyrule Warriors game.
