Ok, so I beat Breath of the Wild. I've seen epic mods for the game, but I want to know how you can get mods for the game. If it matters, I play on the Nintendo Switch and I have both DLC. I did a google search and I got no answer. I also want to know if there is any way to search for mods to get them. I've watched a lot of Breath of the Wild mod videos and I really want to know how I could get some of the mods used in them for myself.

  • A lot of modded footage is from emulation done on the computer, so it may not be nearly as popular to mod for your switch version directly

You will have to install homebrew on your switch. (Against Nintendo's Terms Of Service) I myself would rather not go into detail about hacking a switch but if you look, You can find guide's on the topic. I'm not saying I recommend modding your switch. But it is an option.

After that, you probably will have to install some homebrew applications and install the mods!

-- again I do not recommend doing this.

TL;DR : You probably can't and/or shouldn't.

BotW mods are generally intended for Cemu emulation of the Wii U version. Some mods can be installed on official hardware through homebrew, but this is tricky and against ToS, as was already said, and I wouldn't recommend it. Modding may not even be possible on your Switch due to it relying on hardware exploits that have been fixed on newly produced units since their discovery.

  • If it helps, before I got my switch I played it on a Wii U. Oct 23 '20 at 23:58
  • On a Wii U, it could be easier, but you might still be out of luck depending on your firmware's version. If you're really willing, your best bet is Cemu. I won't be helping you obtain an ISO for the game as that would (probably) go against the rules.
