Play as Bowsette in Breath of the Wild with this new mod

Act quickly before Nintendo catches wind and swap out Link for this internet obsession!


It's happening. The Bowsette meme has grown even stronger. A fan-made mod has brought the internet obsession Bowsette into The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild with basic dress physics and layers of clothing.

The character has also been modded into New Super Mario Bros. Wii as the final boss and even Super Mario 64, but has found everlasting life on the internet via lewd drawings, cosplay, and other artistic expressions. This mod, reported by Nintendo Life, was created by Lynard Killer.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has been a constant source of fun beyond this wonderful mod, something you can see in one of the coolest Breath of the Wild fails around. Enjoy and stay tuned to Shacknews for additional updates.

      Oh it's emulation! I was wondering when the switch was hacked enough to do this, but I forgot that BOTW was also on WiiU and emulateable...

      Amazing what people can accomplish with no consideration given to modding by the developers whatsoever. I really wish there were more devs taking modding really seriously and building a platform that can support big hobbyist projects.
