The Best Zelda Game Gets Ported To The Oculus Rift
[ Gaming]

Last month, a coder made dreams come true when he ported the original Legend of Zelda to the Oculus Rift. It was pretty amazing, but it was also a reminder that it was only a matter of time before the best Zelda game was brought to the Rift.

YouTuber Chadtronic recently used the Dolphin emulator and some other software to bring The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker to Oculus Rift. The entire game is now playable from the first person perspective and it’s kind of amazing.

Of course, there are some drawbacks when forcing a third-person game into first-person. The design was not built around a first person perspective so some items don’t work as intended. It does, however, inspire hope that there may yet be a future for first-person action adventure games on the Oculus Rift.

If you want to see how the Oculus Rift works with a game built with first-person movement in mind, check out this other video of Metroid Prime:
