The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is an amazing game, but Nintendo has well and truly shifted its focus to the second title, due out next year.

Fortunately, modders are still obsessed with the original game and haven't actually stopped supporting it with regular content updates and much more. Now, in the latest development within the BOTW mod scene, a brand new multiplayer splitscreen mod has been revealed.

This beta was developed by 'Kirbymimi' and will be freely available on 29th July. Breath of the Wild modder Waikuteru has provided a first look at this mod in action - showing off two Link taking down various enemies and bosses. They can even attack each other:

While it's not necessarily the first time we've seen multiplayer Breath of the Wild, it does seem to be the first look at a splitscreen mode. Of course, the catch here is that it's not actually running on official Nintendo hardware.
