Nintendo’s beloved classic, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is apparently being ported to PC by a group of modders. According to the project’s GitHub page, work on it is nearly complete with the project being at 88.4% completion right now. The project is actually made by decompiling an N64 ROM version of the game instead of using the game’s actual source code so at its current stage it’s not actually a proper PC port that you can just download and play. This also follows a previous attempt by a modder to create a PC port of another beloved Nintendo title and one of the most prolific games in the platforming genre, Super Mario 64. While that project was promptly shut down by the higher-ups at Nintendo, as is the fate of many unfortunate fan remakes or fan games that use Nintendo’s assets, many remnants of that port can still be found and played today through various sources that we are definitely not allowed to link here.
It needs to be clarified that in its current stage it is NOT a proper PC port. As the above image very clearly shows, as of right now this is solely a decompilation of a ROM of the game to recreate a source code base for the game. At this point, it is not a working or possibly even intended PC port of Ocarina of Time.
The Legend of Zelda; Ocarina of Time is not only one of Nintendo’s most legendary and beloved titles but it’s also a hallmark in the gaming hall of fame. Sitting at a whopping 99% Metascore since its release with the only game to rival it being Nintendo’s own The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild. Time has done very little to sully the undying legacy of Ocarina of Time and even today it’s just as beloved by gamers as it was during the time the game came out. The game has even received an official port by Nintendo on the 3DS which added tons of new features like Gyro aiming, 60 FPS, improved graphics, new gameplay elements, and various quality of life changes throughout the entire game.
