'Dark Souls' and 'The Legend of Zelda' Collide With This Mod

It seems we just can't get enough of the brutally unforgiving experience that is Dark Souls, but at least with this new The Legend of Zelda 'Hero of Twilight' mod - the pain and masochism can be even more worth it than it already was.

The mod is simple, it replaces the Hard Leather Set in the game with The Legend of Zelda's Link and his traditional garb from The Twilight Princess. But it's not just a simple retexture, the mod also adds that good 'ol fashioned "HYUT!" Link shout into the game as well as familiar animations for the boy wonder.

The Hero of Twilight mod is super easy to use. Once Mod Manager is installed, the creator offered these steps to get started:

  1. Open up Mod Manager.
  2. Download and extract the zip file from this mod's Files page.
  3. Select all the extracted folders at once and drag them into the Mod Manager window.
  4. Give it a name (I prefer "Hero of Twilight").
  5. When you're ready to play, check the box next to the mod and click Play.

There is a way to also utilize this project without Mod Manger, "just add the extracted files to your game directory in the proper locations. Make sure to back up the original files first."
