Zelda Saves Link in a Role-Reversed “Legend”

by on March 18, 2013

You want to play a Legend of Zelda game as Zelda? Well, then, here, Kenna W. made a patch so that you can do exactly that. And why not Zelda starring Zelda instead of Link? Kenna, a self-described hobbyist animator, and her boyfriend, a video game programmer, switched Link and Zelda, inspired by the guy who edited Donkey Kong to let his daughter play as the Princess.

Kenna describes the process in her blog and provides links and instructions so you can do the same to an unedited Legend of Zelda NES ROM, because, yeah, it’s cool to have Zelda get to do the fun stuff.
