ZeldaVR, a project spearheaded by developer Ubiquitron to re-create the world of The Legend of Zelda for the Oculus Rift VR in 3D virtual reality has come to fruition, allowing gamers who own the Oculus Rift platform the opportunity to play the original Zelda title in its 8-bit glory in first-person. Currently, a beta has just been released that includes the very first dungeon of the game and the entire overworld to explore. A full release of the title is slated free of charge on virtualreality.io in March 2014.

Hit the jump to see The Legend of Zelda played in 8-bit, first-person, 3D virtual reality for the first time ever, and make sure to look out for the project’s full release this March!
