Great patch, but should be updated

Reviewed By: Bregalad on 09 Apr 2020

I always thought Zelda was a cool character, and I just thought, why can’t I control her as a main protagonist in any official Nintendo-made game ?!

Well, I looked for hacks, and this hacks allows to do exactly that ! Also, they changed some dialogue to make it possible for the story with the role-swap. Contrary to what another review is saying, I’m fine with the sprites used for princess Zelda as a playable protagonist.

Now the only bad thing is, the script wasn’t edited enough. Soldiers still call you “kid” instead of “your highness”, and wanted signs, displaying Link and calling him a criminal in the original game, are broken.

I really hope this patch will see a 1.1 version with those flaws fixed, but nevertheless it’s really worth playing, finally you can control Zelda.

Version 1.0 Recommended - Yes
