The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time came to the Wii U Virtual Console a few days back. You can now watch some footage of the eShop release below.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is launching on the North American Wii U eShop tomorrow, a listing on Nintendo’s website confirms. It will be available as a Virtual Console download for $9.99.

Here’s the official overview:

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time – one of the most critically acclaimed games ever made –returns on the Nintendo eShop for Wii U. Set off on a legendary journey to stop Ganondorf, who has plunged Hyrule into darkness. Travel through time as child and adult Link and experience Hyrule in peace and war to save the world and protect the Triforce.

Your quest takes you through dense forests and across wind-whipped deserts. Swim raging rivers, climb treacherous mountains, dash on horseback across rolling hills, and delve into dungeons full of creatures that fight to the finish to put an end to your adventures. As Link, you’ll also travel through time to solve puzzles, save friends, and right Ganondorf’s wrongs with the help from your trusty Ocarina of Time and the mysterious youth, Sheik. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is one of Nintendo’s most epic challenges ever and one of its most touching stories, and is an absolute must-play for Nintendo fans.

Zelda: Ocarina of Time was confirmed as one of Europe’s Virtual Console releases for this week on Monday. Europe is getting Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising tomorrow as well.


Alright, this is pretty neat. Instructable put together a 15-step guide that shows fans how to create a bartop arcade cabinet for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, which you can find right here.

Plywood is used for the actual cabinet while the game is emulated with Rasberry Pi 2. There are a total of 11 buttons to mimic the N64 controller button layout.

Okay. Who’s going to build one of these things?

During Awesome Games Done Quick 2015 last night, Runnerguy2489 completed three dungeons in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time – just not in a traditional fashion. The feat was accomplished while Runnerguy2489 was blindfolded. In order to progress, he made use of sound cues, glitches, and memorization.

If you haven’t heard of Awesome Games Done Quick, it’s a bi-annual charity gaming marathon that’s all about speedrunning. This year’s event started last Sunday.
