Streamer is Attempting to Beat Zelda: Breath of the Wild Using an Ocarina as a Controller
Twitch streamer gv_mimi is taking on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild with an ocarina. Although this game requires an ocarina to play, gv_mimi is eager to beat Guardians and other bosses!
Six years after its launch in March 2017, Breath of the Wild remains a popular topic online. This critically acclaimed title sold nearly four times more copies worldwide than the current Nintendo Switch install base, providing players with plenty of opportunities to learn new tricks and prepare for The Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom’s release. One player even tried using an ocarina in Breath Of The Wild to control his gameplay!
Reddit user gv_mimi shared a clip from her recent Twitch stream in which she defeated an enemy Guardian using her custom-made ocarina. As she struggles to traverse one of the shrines in the game, eventually approaching and attacking an enemy Guardian with Link’s weapon, she blows into the ocarina to finish Breath of the Wild before Tears of the Kingdom releases on May 12.
Programs that convert notes into buttons can be used to control an ocarina. Gv_mimi can create macros that perform various actions while playing the ocarina, but further testing and fine-tuning of inputs and macros are necessary for Breath of the Wild to work optimally. According to gv_mimi, she will continue experimenting with inputs in order to find the optimal configuration for her custom-made ocarina.
Gv_mimi’s most significant victory comes when she defeats a Guardian with an ocarina. This gives her confidence to tackle more enemies and explore Breath of the Wild’s world. Twitch streamer gv_mimi repeatedly mentions her desire to beat Breath of the Wild using an ocarina before Tears of the Kingdom releases, potentially inspiring other players to use one as well.
Breath of the Wild, an open-world adventure game featuring plenty of action and exploration, is vast. Tears of the Kingdom appears to be even larger; its key art suggests Link will transform Master Sword to use against its antagonists; however, unlike Breath of the Wild itself, Tears of the Kingdom does not appear to feature an ocarina.
