Toon Link Dressed as Solid Snake: A Review

It's a mod for Wind Waker that allows Link to cosplay as the tough-as-nails Solid Snake!

Twitter does not always inspire joy, but somehow, this morning, it did! I came across a tweet by Rick that shared several screenshots of a Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker mod featuring the adorable little guy looking even more adorable, dressed as Metal Gear’s Solid Snake.

He’s got everything: the outfit, the mullet, even the sword has been replaced by a stun knife! It’s not new, but I had never seen it before, and was therefore delighted to watch this cute trailer featuring Link-Snake doing stealthy things in the early game’s Forsaken Fortress!

Just look at the little guy go!

Later on in the mod, an intense-looking parachute replaces the Deku Leaf, a reflector replaces the mirror shield, and bow and arrows become a USP. Several sound effects are replaced as well.
