You Can Play The Legend of Zelda From Link’s POV With The Oculus Rift
Living in an 8-bit world has never been more heroic.
The Oculus Rift can be used for all sorts of amazing things, like controlling space robots and diffusing bombs. But let’s be honest with ourselves – what we really want out of virtual reality gaming is the ability to play The Legend of Zelda from a first-person perspective. That’s right; you can be Link (just make sure you keep quiet).
Though only in Beta, the game is a pretty exact clone of The Legend of Zelda for NES – you can play all the way through to the end of the first dungeon. The full game will be available (for free!) in March; but, if you have an Oculus headset already, you can try out the demo right here.
If you do, just know it’s dangerous to go alone – take this.
