Diary: Rock And Roll With The Gorons Of Hyrule: Total War

By Christopher Livingston on December 17th, 2013.

Are you rocks ready to rock?

Here’s the premise of the Hyrule: Total War mod for Medieval II: Total War Kingdoms. Link, the hero of Hyrule, has tooted some somber notes on his Ocarina and vanished into the past, presumably on a mission to assassinate Navi’s grandfather. The rest of Hyrule, comprised of 20 different factions, is competing to fill the Link-shaped void.

But also, the Medieval II: Total War mod seems poised to run amok like a bull in a holy grail shop. The still-unfinished project (newly on version 3.0) has put out a new trailer that depicts all kinds of series blasphemy. Presumably dead Link. Presumably dead Zelda. Ganondorf and the chain chomp dog from Link’s Awakening delightedly playing fetch together in a daisy field. With Link’s severed eyeball. OK, maybe that last one isn’t true, but the new trailer is full of crazy wonderment, and you can find it below.
