One Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild fan has recreated an iconic scene from the climax of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith, with Link in the starring role as Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi. Players haven’t been able to get enough of the latest main Zelda entry since it launched on the Nintendo Switch in 2017, where it garnered critical acclaim for its immersive open-world gameplay that took the long-running dungeon-crawling RPG series in a bold and exciting new direction.? ?
Aside from following Link’s gripping quest to save the kingdom of Hyrule from the evil Calamity Ganon, fans have made their own fun in Breath Of The Wild in a variety of different ways, such as using mods to uncover secret chambers or rebuilding Hyrule to match the setting of the game’s 2020 spin-off, Hyrule Warriors: Age Of Calamity. Less technically-inclined-but-still-creative players have hosted bread-baking contests and impromptu firework displays, and now one fan has pulled off an impressive Star Wars re-enactment involving Link as a certain old wizard in his prime.

Reddit user u/Civillyoblige783 posted a humorous screenshot of Link’s?fight against a robotic Guardian in The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild to the r/BreathOfTheWild subreddit yesterday. This image depicts the Guardian submerged in a river of lava with Link standing above it in a manner matching Obi-Wan standing on the high ground in Revenge Of The Sith’s climactic lightsaber duel. Topping the reference is a caption reading “You were my brother, Anakin,” a line the saddened Obi-Wan cries out as he’s forced to watch his fallen protégé Anakin Skywalker be set aflame on the riverbed of Mustafar, bringing him one step closer to becoming the dreaded Darth Vader.
While players continue to enjoy the vast open world of Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild, fans are still eagerly awaiting news of its long-awaited sequel. There’s no official word on the release date yet, with Nintendo focusing on a DLC expansion for Age Of Calamity instead, but anything is possible during the Legend Of Zelda 35th anniversary celebration?which is taking place throughout 2021. ?
Although Link arguably matches Luke Skywalker better than Obi-Wan Kenobi, seeing him take the high ground in a spot-on recreation of one of the old Jedi master’s most iconic scenes is certainly entertaining for fans of both Star Wars and The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild. Hopefully this Guardian doesn’t come back as a menacing armored cyborg any time soon; any fan of the game will agree that these mechanical terrors are more than dangerous enough as they are.
