UNUSUAL on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the NPCs would be improved versions of Mii

While players will have to be patients regarding new information for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild 2, the first opus released in 2017 on the Switch continues to reveal its secrets. Do you remember the THOUSAND, these little characters who arrived with the release of the Wii and who then continued their way on the Wii U or Nintendo 3DS. Well, these would be present, in a way, in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild.

In any case, this is what the modder EHEYimHeroic via a tweet. Indeed, the latter asserts that the non-playable characters in the game would actually be upgraded versions of the THOUSAND, namely UMii. She also explains that UMii would have the same parameters as the thousands, except for a few details. To support his argument, the modder did not hesitate to take THOUSAND derived from Super Smash Bros Ultimate and Wii Sports, or even his own avatar, and injected them into The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild thanks to modding. As you can see above, the result is quite impressive.

However, slight distinctions are present, especially at the level of haircuts. The UMii would have fewer customization options than THOUSAND classics, and if you try to place a THOUSAND with an inappropriate haircut, the latter will be replaced by another hairstyle that the title supports, while approaching the basic hairstyle. It would also be possible to take non-playable characters from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild and make them your own THOUSAND, but the result would lose quality. Note, however, that Link and Zelda are not UMii.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild is available on Amazon for € 51.49.
