New The Legend of Zelda Remastered Mod Pack is a Must-Have for Fans of the Franchise
A new The Legend of Zelda Remastered mod pack has been released, greatly enhancing the fan-favorite RPG.
The ‘Mesen HD Pack’, as the modification is called, is a romhack that builds upon previous The Legend of Zelda romhacks and uses ‘The Legend of Zelda Redux’ as its base. The package replaces graphics, music, sound effects, and offers various gameplay changes.
As a massive fan of the Zelda series, I’m quite impressed with this package, and I highly suggest trying it out. The enhancements that the package offers are simply stunning and provide an all-new Zelda experience.
We’ve included the pack’s main features alongside some trailers of the mod in action down below. You’ll also find a video with instructions on how to start playing. Please note that you will need to own the original The Legend of Zelda NES game from 1986 in order to be allowed to play backup ROMs.
