BOTW Soundtrack Overhaul

A Mod for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (WiiU)

Obsolescence Notice

This mod is lacking a BNP, due to the age, might also be made for another version of BOTW.


Switch Version 1.0 1y
  • Addition Added link to Switch port
Update 1.1 1y Addition Adjustment Update 1.0 1y Refactor Update 0.6 1y Adjustment Removal Update 0.5 1y Addition3 Adjustment
This overhaul aims to add some variety to the music found in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Full accreditation has been included int he bottom of the description. 

- - Switch Port  - -

Up on youtube is a clip of the new Hetano Village theme. It's a beautiful cover of Outset island from Windwaker composed by Sam Griffin which I find matches the aesthetics of the town perfectly. A link to his video can be found in the description of the Youtube video.

The mod makes use of Jazz inspired tracks for general daytime/overworld, using covers from previous installments of the series, as well as pieces from other games. Nightime and dungeons will have ambient music reminiscent of series such as Metroid, which will aim to capture a similar atmosphere and tone. Combat music will take pieces and inspiration from games like Terraria, Metroid, and Castlevania, which will help to create a more intense atmosphere.

As of right now only a handful of tracks have been altered, but a master list will be uploaded shortly and suggestions are 100% welcome and encouraged. Mod is available as a graphics pack mod for Cemu and as as a regular mod for the Wii U system. Switch implementation is function but somewhat sketchy.

(Proper accreditation can be found under the ownership tab of the page)

    Playing on Cemu, the Guardian_main music track is incredibly loud in relation to the other tracks. Other than that, this has been a wonderfully nostalgic music pack.

    Love it! A lost woods/saria's song remix for the lost woods would be great, as would using gerudo valley for the area around gerudo city... or bolero of fire around death mountain. I think I speak for most in saying OOT had the best soundtrack. Check out insaneintherain on youtube for some inspiration, I'm sure he'd love to contribute!
    PS the new Kakariko track needs to be about 1.3x louder, it's really quiet. Goron City sounds great!

    I love this mod! It's clear that you put a lot of thought into choosing each track so that the game would feel much more like Zelda without clashing against the calm clarity of Breath of the Wild.

    If I had to give any recommendations, I'd say to find a way to incorporate the Hyrule Field theme from Ocarina of Time. I'd say that it would work perfectly for riding your horse in the day, and would recommend this cover

    Another thing I'd like to mention is that I think it's a bad idea to use any tracks from other series. Although the songs may fit the setting, they may sound a bit familiar and take the player out of the experience.

    Kass' Theme is certainly one of favorite song in the vanilla game. personally, I'd say to change it back to the original or to a cover of the original, and to change the Stable Theme to his whenever he is present.

    The Stable Theme is also pretty good, and it might be a good idea to either change it back to the original, or work out a system that will randomly choose between the two.

    The vanilla themes for the Hinox and Talus battles are already very well suited. The Hinox Theme has loud, low, clumsy horns that work perfectly when fighting a fat, lumbering ogre, and the Talus Theme has constant beats and clashes that sound like miners picking away at stone with haste. I'd say to look at similar bosses who have appeared in the Zelda series and find covers that suit them.

    Unless I've missed something, this is still version 3. None of the new additions or changes mentioned for version 4 are included. Is there a file I'm not seeing that I'm supposed to download here? Has version 4 actually been uploaded or is the internet fuckin with me rn
