Kaze Emanuar is a talented developer with a long history of popular N64 mods to demonstrate his prowess. We’ve reported on many of his past efforts, including a Super Mario 64 splitscreen mod and his fan game Super Mario 64 Land. His latest creation focuses on another popular Nintendo franchise: The Legend of Zelda. With a team of modders including Zel and CDi-fails, Kaze has just released a new Ocarina of Time mod called The Legend of Zelda: The Missing Link.
If you’re familiar with Zelda lore, you know that Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask star the same incarnation of Link. Ocarina ends with a young Link parting ways with Navi, his fairy companion, and Majora’s Mask seems to open with him on a quest to find her. The Missing Link tells the story of what happened in between. Join Link on a journey filled with new items to use, new dungeons to explore, an original soundtrack, and new types of puzzles. You can check out the launch trailer by clicking below! Directly underneath the trailer, check out an informative video by Hard4Games that shows off all sorts of cool stuff that you can find within the mod.

About this Zelda mod
If you’re interested in playing The Missing Link, you can find out how to download it in the release trailer’s YouTube description. It’s compatible with N64 emulators and the Wii Virtual Console (if you’re set up to run mods). Kaze aimed for quality over quantity, so the game is “about 1/4 the size of Majora’s Mask,” but with tons of effort put into each section. It was delayed several times as new talent joined the development team to improve it before release. If you enjoy the new music in this trailer, you can also check out the complete soundtrack.
