If you’re one of those people who are waiting for the sequel to the 2017 game The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, maybe this expansive mod could satisfy you for a while. Thanks to the Wii U version of the game being playable in the Cemu emulator, modders were given a chance to add more spice into the vast and breathtaking world of the game. The expansive mod, called Second Wind project, is a “large-scale story expansion,” as PC Gamer details:

While development is still ongoing (it’s apparently 60 percent complete overall, while a planned port to the Switch version is at one percent), according to the project breakdown among the things Second Wind plans to add are eight new areas, including a hub called Ordon Village, 15 sidequests, 38 meals, 28 animals including variants of existing ones, hand-to-hand martial arts, and the masks and gossip stones from previous Zelda games. There’s also a shrine overhaul that will tweak all 120 shrines to make them look unique, and give some “new puzzles, alternative solutions, new enemy encounters and more.”
Second Wind also aims to incorporate survival elements, crafting blacksmiths, rebalanced mechanics, changes to quivers and unique horses, all of which come from existing mods. And that’s not all. There’s a Second Wind wiki with more information, and a Discord server with the FAQ.
