Random: The original NES Zelda has been recreated in virtual reality, which is awesome

We’ve seen Ocarina of time Go to VR, thanks LaboWe also saw Breath of the Wild in VR. So what’s the natural next step? The original NES game, of course!

The 1986 game that started it all. The Legend of Zelda, recreated in VR. Shared on Twitter by @employeeThe first section of the NES game is entirely playable in virtual reality. This VR version is a modification of DOOM (what else Will it be?) using the QuestZDoom engine for the Quest VR headset – hence the amusing name Death legend. We wonder if Doomguy will do well in Hyrule…

You might be wondering if the visuals have been recreated or if there have been any changes, but nope, it’s like you’ve dropped into an NES game yourself. Right from entering the cave and being told “It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this” to exploring the first dungeon, it’s a faithful recreation of The Legend of Zelda, including pixel art and chiptunes.
