Project Third Quest is a mod of the Ocarina of Time game engine that is set to give players a whole new experience with the fan favorite title.

The project is a combination of efforts, featuring the talents of CDi-Fails, Ideka, Melon Speedruns, SanguinettiMods, and Spire. These modders hope to revamp entire maps within Ocarina of Time to make them almost unrecognizable — but in a good way.

In the reveal trailer below, you can check out how much Lake Hylia has changed, see a magic-resistant tunic in the new Rebonack and Aquamentus boss (based on the Phantom Ganon battle), and get a glimpse of the Earth Labyrinth. The latter is a completely new area, and features everyone’s favorite nightmare: the Dead Hand.

If that’s not enough to whet your appetite, Project Third Quest has recently released a teaser trailer for the game’s first patch. It features some lovely music in one area, and a vibrant theme set against what could be the edges of Castle Town.

The maps in these videos are still under development, so many things may, and will, change before release. Until the first patch is released, you can keep up to date through Project Third Quest’s blog, or by subscribing to them on YouTube. You can also be sure Zelda Universe will be bringing you updates on this promising mod!

    I’m not really feeling this quite yet. I think it needs a lot of work but I look forward to seeing what it might become!

    Quite glad this mod was covered otherwise I’d have never notice it. Will def check it out when it’s finished (hoping it does reach completion) and I’m guessing it’ll only be playable via emulation. That song at the end sounds like a mix of TP and ALTTP with the tempo of MM thrown in.

    What system would this be on? Would it be legal?

      Are you serious? Go check what a mod is.

    I like how the shield design takes after the one from A Link to the Past.

    The terrain looks pretty chaotic though, lots of drops and land formations jutting out. But like you said it’s still in development.

    Now we wait and see how far it gets before Nintendo tells them to stop. D:

    Anyone wanna know the difference between this hack and that old URA Zelda restoration project? That project only had a bunch of concept artwork and no real work done on it, this mod actually has stuff added into the game.

  • Andrew Kirby

    Looks great so far! I’m wondering how in depth the “modders” will attempt to go? Will this be a brand new game (per se)? ZU states in the article that it will be a “…new experience”; but how new? Will the temples be new? Obviously the landscape will be!
