A team of modders and fans have been working on a PC port of the beloved N64-era Ocarina of Time, and a new video shows off some gameplay.
While the console market generally dominates the gaming industry, PC gaming continues to grow, with some viewing it as the superior platform. With the success of God of the war being ported to PC, it shows that playing games on personal computers is still highly sought after by the community. While making a contemporary console game playable on PC is one thing, it’s quite another to take a nearly quarter-century-old game that was exclusive to Nintendo and do the same. But that’s what some people did for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
According to a recent report from DSO Gaming, a new video has emerged that shows off the upcoming PC version of the classic Ocarina of time, which was originally released for the Nintendo 64 in 1998. The clip shows the game, which is based on reverse-engineered code and retains the overall look of the original. The video description states that this release will have widescreen support as well as scaling, which can be seen in the short clip.
In the footage, Link is seen wandering the Lon Lon Ranch as well as Kakariko Village. It’s worth remembering at this point that this is a native PC port of the original console game, not a remake. For many who remember the beloved N64 game, it will look very familiar, but with the aforementioned graphical upscaling. Since the game is limited to Nintendo consoles, including the now defunct ones, it will likely be exciting for many fans who will soon be able to play it on another platform.
Unfortunately, it is not yet known exactly when this version will be released. The developer says that the PC port of Ocarina of time is slated for release soon, with the project being 90% complete, and could be finished this month, and it will finally release sometime after that. Given that it was created from a reverse-engineered version of the original game’s code, it should hopefully not attract the attention of Nintendo’s legal team, but time will tell. on this front.
Looks like the classic The Legend of Zelda the game inspires people in many ways. Along with the upcoming PC port, a fan recreated Ocarina of time elements in Unreal Engine 5, which makes for stunning visuals. Although this project is also not a remake, it shows that despite being almost 24 years old, it still holds a special place in the hearts of many people.
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is available on Nintendo 64, GameCube and 3DS, as well as the Nintendo Switch.
