The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is one of the best video games of all time. Naturally that means that fans want to revisit it in any way they can. Ocarina of Time has had a few re-releases since the original game came out for the N64. A few fans have taken it upon themselves to give Ocarina of Time a new makeover. Instead of making the game using fancy 3-D graphics, they’ve gone old school with 2-D. It’s the classic 16-bit look and this fan re-make is clearly inspired by the original Link to the Past, the Legend of Zelda game for Super Nintendo. Get more info about this awesome fan re-make here at their website.
They’ve only made it partially through the game so far, but they do have a demo you can download and play! I think this is such a great idea. Ocarina of Time is a great game but the 16-bit graphics are something I still love. Even with the fancy virtual reality and life-like graphics games are doing now, 16-bit is something special. Plus I could listen to the 16-bit version of the soundtrack all day. Take a look at the cut scene with the Deku tree:
Link is definitely an iconic hero. I love that the latest game, Hyrule Warriors, gives you Zelda and others as playable characters too. I love Zelda’s new design. If you could create a character and add them to the Ocarina of Time story, what would they look like?
