I remember posting a thread here to see what game you'd like to see ported to the Wii from another console, and by far the most overwhelming response was for a port of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Well, guess what?

After a while of deliberating, I have started, as of yesterday, to start making said port. This will take up much of mine and my team's time and resources, so expect very sparse updates here but a lot behind the scenes. Any progress will be shown in this thread and added to the original post.

Also, since porting a game is hard, let alone by yourself, I'm starting a recruitment Skype chat room to build up a team to complete this monstrous task.

There will be several DEDICATED positions needing to be filled [ * marks necessary positions and (*) positions are to be determined or may not be needed]:
* Modelers to optimize all of BOTW's geometry (at least 5 people).
* Texturers to optimize raster images like textures, UI elements, and logos as well as create new graphics specific to a Wii port like a Wii Menu banner(at least 3 people).
* Animators for transferring animations (at least 4 people).
* Sound engineers to extract and convert music and sound effects of the game (at least 2 people).
* Reverse engineers to disassemble and decompile the game's main executable so a Wii port can be written, as well as crack file formats from the game (at least 6 people).
* General designers for adapting various aspects of the game to the Wii like control schemes, choosing a game engine should a direct port be impossible, implementation schemes and other stylistic aspects (about 3 people).
(*) Game engineers for implementing assets and physics into a 3rd-party game engine should a direct port be infeasible/impossible (about 4 people).
(*) Beta testers will be requested as necessary through campaigns and will not needed until later date (amount TBD).
(*) Miscellaneous positions that may crop up at a given time (amount TBD).

PM me and I'll speak to you personally before adding you to the chat.

Feel free to post your feelings and comments on the project as replies to the thread.
I hope things go swimmingly from here from now on out! :)

(Also if you admins have any problems concerning this thread or the project itself, send me a PM and I will try to make things right.)

Wow. This seems like a huge project. I'm not able to help, but I wish you luck. I can't wait to see what'll come out of this!

Also, will be able to apply mods like this?

Wow. Just... wow. Breath of the Wild would be awesome to see on the Wii, especially since I can't play it on my Wii U because I'm dirt cheap. I wish you good luck!

Oh, also, on that poll post, iyenal had some important stuff for this game, so be sure to make note of what he said. It'll be important for what you're doing (most likely).

Yes, maybe the informations I told in the poll thread can be useful for the port.
Also, JakoNintenCraft, we thought in the SMG2ANU developers group that we maybe will do a level based on Breath of The Wild, where I will do mesh optimizations, so I can send it to you when I will finish it. But do you think that you will find all the people you need, and they work with you during all the duration of the project ? But don't forget that you will enter in the history if you succeed.

I can maybe try to do some things for models and sounds for this port.

Don't you mean recreate? Porting would be reverse engineering the game's code and writing it to work for said system

I'm pretty sure he's trying to port it, yeah.

I would help, but I'd probably have to quit school for that kind of time :P

This does seem like quite a task, but would be cool to see finished.
I wish you luck with this!

Yes, you will most likely (probably through Riivolution, as I plan for the game to be meant to be burned to a disc to be played, similar to how actual Wii games are.)

Thank you for your interest. Should you want to help with things, send me a PM for what you want to do.

On other notes there are a couple of things I have in mind for this project and I need some feedback:

Should I do a Kickstarter/Patreon page? Yeah, way too early for this.

Should there be Wii Port-exclusive content or just BOTW's original stuff?

Should I also post this project on a larger board to gain more developers and feedback? If yes then where?

Feel free to comment and answer. Also I need dev team members! Are you up to the challenge?

riivolution doesn't support burned games however, so
shibs is a nerd pass it on

What I mean is I mean make the game like a factory-made one by reverse engineering the Wii's copy protection and then making the copy work so that mods can run like we have for the PC (via CEMU), Wii U, and Switch (soon-to-be).

If that doesn't work then a bootloader or otherwise can do it, but I hope option #1 works out in the end. :)

It's way too early to start a patreon imo.

I'm sure people would love to donate to something which doesn't have a single inch of progress.

Point taken. No crowdfunding (yet).

Don't do (now) crowdfunding, Nintendo can burn anything. Maybe just a small donate.
For port, you give yourself liberty on this project and make some things exclusive. You may also add a website to showcase the project and add a issue tracker or collaboration group, but I don't think a forum may stay empty.

How much is your motivation and how much you can work on it without losing interest ? This project is a track that you have to follow to succeed.

Yeah, we've seen that happen to Kaze with Super Mario 64 Online.
