Hack of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Description:

Did you know that there was a pseudo-sequel to A Link to the Past released six years after the original and exclusively on a broadcast satellite service in Japan? The maker of this hack did… and thought it would be fun to port the player characters from that game into this one.

The files inside the downloadable ZIP replace the usual hero, Link, with either the Broadcast Satellaview boy or girl mascot, depending on which file you use, from BS The Legend of Zelda: The Ancient Stone Tablets… and that’s it. No fancy gimmicks, no altered gameplay, no radical changes to the story (aside from some pronoun juggling). Just a good, clean character swap lovingly taken from the Japan-exclusive satellite game.

This hack also changes a couple other minor graphics that weren’t used in The Ancient Stone Tablets (but are used in the original), but it’s purely for aesthetics.

Updates in v1.0.3

  • Fixed a text overflow when talking to Sahasralah for the first time only after getting the Pendant of Courage (Girl Version only)

You can finally be a cute girl in Zelda!

Reviewed By: Chiffon on 05 Dec 2017

If you, like me, think that every game would be improved if you could play as a cute girl, then this is a simple but essential hack! The BS-X sprites are very good, and have been implemented very well into the game, as have the little changes to the script to accomodate the character’s different gender. It’s great!

Oh and there’s a boy character with a backwards cap too.
