Have you ever wanted to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild without the cel-shading look? While that isn’t possible under normal circumstances, one modder has made it possible.

Here’s a look:

The physical version of Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove, Shovel Knight: King of Cards, Shovel Knight Showdown, and Treasure Trove amiibo 3-pack were all planned for that day.
