Zelda Starring Zelda brings role reversal to The Legend of Zelda


Inspired by the Pauline and Mario switcheroo in Donkey Kong by Mike Mika, animator Kenna W. and her video game programmer boyfriend decided that a similar thing could be implemented in The Legend of Zelda.

Together they produced a ROM hack they’ve dubbed Zelda Starring Zelda, with Zelda now taking over the role of the main protagonist, complete with new sprites to match.

You can read all about the development of the project and get the ROM from Kenna’s blog.
