Epic crossover: Modder inserts Paper Link into Paper Mario: The Origami King

Paper Link

Now that Paper Mario: The Origami King has been out for a while, it’s up to modders to keep the game fresh. And what better way to make things interesting than inserting Link into the world of Paper Mario? While we have seen concepts of this idea before, we’ve never witnessed Paper Link in one of these titles on a grand scale.

The Paper Link mod is fairly new, so it is still in beta. Players who download it can only see the Hylian hero in a fraction of the game, as the character reverts back to Mario in certain cutscenes and battle sequences. Progress on that front is being made, at least, as evidenced by these screenshots which show the addition of Red and Blue Tunics:
