Nintendo 64 ROM Hack 'Legend of Zelda: Waluigi of Time' Casts The Purple Plumber As The Hero

Waluigi-Of-TimeOver the years we've seen our fair share of unusual and plain bonkers modifications to classic games. Take for example Sonic The Hedgehog's unofficial debut on the Super Nintendo through a hacked version of Speedy Gonzales. These prior efforts, however, are about to seem pale after one gamer's adjustments to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - placing Nintendo's anti-hero Waluigi as the hero of time.

Simply dubbed Legend of Zelda: Waluigi of Time, this alteration to the 1998 adventure does nothing more than cast away the green-clad hero for that of Luigi's purple nemesis. While there may not appear to be any changes to the game's story or dialogue, simply seeing the sinister face of Waluigi in iconic scenes from the Nintendo 64 title will no doubt have you tickled.

Within moments of booting up this modification you'll find Ganondorf towering over the plumber in the game's memorable opening scenes, shortly before finding Waluigi being dubbed as the boy without a fairy. Simply put the Legend of Zelda: Waluigi of Time is a somewhat surreal, albeit amusing experience for any Nintendo fan.

Those wanting to give this amusing take on the Nintendo 64 quest a spin will be pleased to know that a patch has been made available to modify the original game ROM.
