Mod Puts CJ from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas into Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Mod Puts CJ from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas into Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Today on "Things You Never Knew You Wanted."

Blessed are the game modders, for they fill the gaps we never knew existed in our souls. For example, did you know the already-epic Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild can be improved several times over by replacing Link with CJ from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas? Neither did I. The world is full of wonders.

The Carl Johnson mod by "WilianZilv" delivers what it promises: San Andreas' bad boy takes Link's place, and he's pretty proficient at busting Moblin ass. The mod doesn't simply drop a polygonal PlayStation 2 model of CJ into the game, either. Our man fits right in, cell-shading and all.

The mod runs on Wii U versions of the game emulated onto the PC. Brace yourselves: Hot Coffee mods are inevitably coming next [*titter*]. Let's not forget that Link draws the attention of men, women, and trees in Breath of the Wild. This should be fun. And possibly depraved.
