Incredible Doom Mod Transforms the Game into a Zelda Adventure
Few video games have had the same impact and significance as The Legend of Zelda. The original Zelda has had a tremendous influence on players and developers all across the globe since its introduction to the Nintendo Entertainment System. The same may be said with Doom. When the first-person shooter first appeared, it, too, altered the landscape of the video game business. It may seem strange to combine these two games, but that is precise what developer @DeTwelveGames accomplished with his “The Legend of Doom” mod! The mod was released in 2021, however, @DeTwelveGames stated a few weeks ago that they would search for new ways to enhance the game before moving on to their next project.

It’s incredible to watch this mod in action! The enemy designs and graphics from the original Zelda game work far better in this setting than anybody imagined, and @DeTwelveGames has carefully recreated them. Players who look attentively will note that the DoomSlayer has been given a cap similar to the one Link wears. This version pays close attention to detail, which elevates it beyond many other Doom modifications that have been uploaded online. For long-time Zelda fans, this is a fantastic effort that is definitely worth investigating!
This unauthorised crossover will have to do for fans since an official Zelda-Doom crossover is unlikely to come anytime soon! The closest we’ve gotten to seeing DoomSlayer and Link in the same game is a Mii Fighter outfit that can be purchased in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Given Doom’s long-standing popularity, many speculated that DoomSlayer might be included in the fighting game, but it seems that this was not to be!
