Back in February, Youtuber Chadtronic gave us an Oculus Rift guided tour of Ocarina of Time’s Kokiri Forest. Now he’s back with more first-person Oculus Rift gameplay, this time with a complete emulated version of Ocarina of Time.

Using the Oculus Rift, you can play the game just as you normally would, but if you’re going to play an Oculus Rift, you’ll want to play in first-person perspective. Thanks to a glitch within the game, you can do just that, and while it looks super cool on the Oculus Rift, you can take advantage of this cool trick on your regular ol’ Nintendo 64. By implementing this exploit, you can walk around, charge your sword, and even do somersaults all from Link’s perspective. There are a few limitations, for example you can’t ride Epona and Link’s bangs get in the way, but overall it’s a neat new way to experience the game. Instructions on how to achieve first-person mode in Ocarina of Time are included in the video.

    So I suppose the next step would be to make a straight up first person Zelda, then, wouldn’t it? Really cool video. I hadn’t heard about that glitch before, so that’s nice.

    Link’s hair does add to the immersion that you are playing as the Hero of Time, however if Nintendo ever made a Zelda game using this kind of tech…I’d love to just try it once.

    I would love seeing this happen, especially in combination with the wii remote, I would feel like such a badass, and it would add to the realism of the game. Although I have to say, my first complaint of a completely first person Zelda game is that I wouldn’t be able to see Link look all cool slashing away his enemies, but I suppose I could let it pass in turn for the Oculus Rift.
