I'm not the biggest Legend of Zelda fan, I'm not the biggest Medieval II: Total War fan, but I want to play this mod. That trailer sold me. Too bad I am terrible at any strategy that isn't turn-based. The mod, downloadable here, has been around for a while. We posted a trailer of its first iteration a couple years ago, and it was pretty good, but this recent trailer released for the work-in-progress' 3.0 version is even more impressive.
Though Zelda's tears as she hoists the saggy weight of a presumably dead Link is sort of hilarious and undermining because it looks intentionally overwrought, like the insultingly joking sad face you might give a mate you were schooling in Total War as they wined about losing.
So, Legends of Zelda fans, what's the verdict? Where do you ally in the mod's revisionist Hylian history? Which series faction will you hoist to power? I'm team Lady Ganondorf, personally.
