The Legend of Zelda BETA on the Oculus Rift

Screen Shot 2014-02-22 at 10.00.36 AMThe original Legend of Zelda has made it’s way on to various Nintendo consoles through the generations of re-releases and even emulated roms on other devices. While many games are currently being developed for the Oculus Rift, some classics such as the NES Legend of Zelda are already undergoing a beta revealing the virtual 8-bit reality of Hyrule in 3D.

Hit the jump for glimpse of the overworld and first dungeon in first person 3D!

Currently, beta 1.0 only allows enough progress to beat the first dungeon. The first video by YouTuber Vaecon shows a brief demo of  beta 1.0 in the overworld. The second video below by YouTuber YOGSCAST Martyn shows a playthrough of the first dungeon.

In case you’re wondering how to get a hold of an Oculus Rift, the Oculus Rift Developer Kit is available for roughly 300 USD. Hopefully the Oculus Rift Legend of Zelda version will be completed before the Rift is released for public retail. Perhaps there will even more of your favorite classic NES titles reworked for the Oculus Rift
