  • Unlockable alternative skills and skins
  • Multiplayer compatible

Watch a showcase here!

PM me on Discord @TheWarlock117#6226 with any bugs, complaints, or suggestions!

Please check known issues first! Also be aware that I am unlikely to add any more skins than are already included. Due to the nature of BOTW's assets, adding new skins is incredibly time-consuming and tedious, and if I add any more, it will be further down the road, when I am feeling particularly masochistic.
