Fans of Nintendo’s long-standing character Link will probably love the Zelda Sword Skills mod for Minecraft, which allows players to wield their blades in ways much like Link himself. It’s more than just swordplay skills too – this mod includes a number of other items found in the Legend of Zelda series, all fully functional and working in the Minecraft world. You’ve got your thrusts, spin attacks and leaping slashes, but that’s just the start. Look out for hostile mobs from Zelda like moblins, tektites and others, as well as dungeon environments that will bring to mind famous dungeons from the popular game series.
There are actually so many new skills, there’s a unique skills GUI to tell you all about what every new skill does, as well as how to actually use the skills, so you’re not just playing blind and trying to figure things out on your own. The Zelda Sword Skills mod and everything it includes was all tested and made specifically for Minecraft 1.6.4, and it requires a related version of Minecraft Forge to be installed and function properly, so keep that in mind if you’re using newer versions of either and experiencing bugs or crashes. Also, be on the lookout for secret rooms where mod-specific items can usually be found.
