Nintendo is back in business, this time targeting a YouTube channel run by Zelda: Breath of the Wild modder Waikuteru, known for his work on the popular Second Wind expansion mod.
In an update on the channel, it was explained to Vaikuter how Nintendo had already removed 40 videos on the channel – due to concerns that it would be empty for a week if it continued. Now Waikuteru is asking fans of the Second Wind mod to unite through discord channel, in the hope that they can get Nintendo to change its mind about mods:
“Nintendo attacked my channel and removed 40 videos. If this continues, the channel will be empty within a week. I know a lot of you guys love mods, hence the subscription. There is only one way to change Nintendo’s discontinuation of mods, and that is to convince Nintendo with more people to change their mind. The goal is to get so many people together that Nintendo needs to listen to us.”
At the time of writing, most of the Waikuteru Breath of the Wild: Second Wind videos have been removed from YouTube. As for the project itself, it is still available, there were no C&D or anything like that.
If we become aware of any changes, we will be sure to let you know.
