A delightful crossover
Ever wondered what a mash-up of Banjo-Kazooie and The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker might look like? Yes, no, maybe? Well, this mod – The Legend of Banjo-Kazooie: The Bear Waker – by Mark Kurko shows us a location from Wind Waker inside Banjo's game. The demo (see the video below) takes place on Outset Island – the...
The king of the Gerudo tribe joins the battle
When Super Smash Bros. started out life in 1999 on the Nintendo 64, there were only 12 fighters to select from. As "all-star" as this original cast was, unfortunately, Link was unable to duke it out with Ganondorf. Now, 20 years on, a modder by the name of JSsixtyfour has released a new ROM hack...
More racers, more fun
If 12 racers in Mario Kart wasn't already infuriating enough, how would you feel about 24? A video game modder named MrBean35000vr has been able to get 24 karts up and running in Mario Kart Wii. As he explains in the above video, his mod can handle between 24-29 racers, but the game crashes when 30 or more karts are added...
A contender for future Mario Kart tracks?
We've seen a rather generous supply of fan-made Super Mario game creations, hacks, and large-scale projects over the last few months; a couple of weeks ago saw the return of Super Mario 64 Online with Sonic as a playable character, and earlier in the year we had a re-imagining of Super Mario Bros. DS with 80...
Cool and convincing
Ever since the Zelda: Breath of the Wild artwork for Link was first shown off, showing a slightly more androgynous look to the character than we usually see, many of us were left speculating whether the game's hero might actually be female (or at least have a female character as an option to choose from). While this, of course,...
"End of the world", etc.
We've all played video games, and many of us will have watched other people play video games, but now the time has come to sit back and let AI do the job for us - and be surprisingly successful in the process! Kaze Emanuar, a modder who has dedicated an awful lot of his time into changing up the familiar worlds of Super...
Link shot the food! Impa is about to die! Zelda shot the potion!
Hats off to 'pacnsacdave' for this ingenious bit of graphical hacking. Bringing the over the top action of Hyrule Warriors to the humble NES hardware seems like quite a stretch, but thanks to this well implemented complete graphics overall of Tengen's NES conversion of Atari's ageless...
For those of us with small-ish hands - this writer raises a small-ish hand without shame - the Joy-Con controllers are fairly comfortable when slotted into the Nintendo Switch. For those with bigger paws, though, it can be a bit of a cramp to use the right stick comfortably. That's to be expected with various Nintendo controllers and...
Grab it while it's hot
Here's another blink and you'll miss it fan mod that seems to take Nintendo source material and go the extra mile. You know what that means! It'll likely only be available for a short time before it disappears. Before you blame us for this, Kotaku have highlighted it; we're just sharing so you know it exists before Nintendo...
Long-time fans of Nintendo have often harped on about the GameCube controller being one of the best controllers in gaming history, and the console it attached to first was certainly not shy of some spectacular releases. It's a shame that we have to have a television the size of Snowdonia just to be able to appreciate the system...
Modded hardware with practically zero input lag
While many work on emulators to boost resolutions of retro systems, genuine hardware mods are arguably the truest way to enjoy older games with a crisper, clearer picture. With that in mind we're always interested in mods that can apply a digital HDMI output to retro consoles and, as a result, improve...
LED cheeks, a tail and feet to stand up
We sure like retro console mods here at Nintendo Life, as fans take classic systems and apply a neat twist to their design. Nintendo systems are often re-imagined in wonderful ways, and this 'PikaBoy' system is another example. The creator, 'eforie', had the idea in 2011 but made it a reality for...
Scary in a different way!
Rare’s Donkey Kong Country was a huge feat in itself when it was released on the Super Nintendo in 1994. Now imagine recreating the iconic jungle-based platformer within an entirely different game engine from around the same era. Enter Doom, and insert the reminder here of just how crazy modders of the classic...
A cross-over too good to be true
Spelunky with a dash of Metroid — it sounds just as bizarre, yet as appetising, as pea and ham soup. That’s why this weird match-up has now been made a reality by mod maker, joey4track. To publicise his unique creation exclusive to the PC version of the game, he passed the modification onto YouTube personality...
Rewind the clock with this fully functional modification
We've seen our fair share of weird and wonderful console modifications during our time at Nintendo Life, but this latest project from modder Shinobicycle could well be the weirdest one yet. In what looks to be a wholesome celebration of the 1980s, this brave modder has taken a NES clone and...
