OK, guys, let’s step back in time for a moment. This article is for all millennials thereas we go into full nostalgia mode and return to the 1990s at a completely different time than today. Console games dominated the market, and the most popular console was none other than the nintendo64.
One of the most popular games released in 1998 was none other than The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and since PC games have become much more popular, fans who grew up with this Nintendo 64 classic have been hoping to play it on the computer. Well… you might not have to wait much longer.
Modders are creating a PC port for Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
In 2020, the source code for Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was leaked and fans have been hoping for a PC version of the game ever since. Hope may have paid off, as modders have worked hard to bring the game to PC for all of us.
A few weeks ago video footage of the PC port was released on YouTube. There, fans could see all the work already done on the PC version. When the footage was released, it was said that the game was around 90% complete, so we might not have to wait much longer.
This version of the game is expected to include widescreen support, scaling, and the ability to run the game at 60fps. Hopefully these statistics are true.
What about copyright issues?
The game was reverse-engineered, with some assets built entirely from scratch. This means the port should be released without Nintendo intervening – but again, it’s Nintendo we’re talking about.
When will the PC port be available?
PC Port, according to modders, should be available on April 1, 2022 — so let’s pray it’s not a sick April Fool’s joke. This unofficial Ocarina of Time is called “OpenOcarina” if you want to search for it.
So now we can all sit back, relax and hope that this mod comes out in April, and we get some news on Breath of the Wild 2 as well. Wouldn’t it just be great to have the old goodies, as well as the new goodies, at the same time?
