ZeldaVR bring the original NES title to Oculus

leave a comment »

In what continues to be an impressive space for new experiences, it appears a group known as Ubiquitron has ported the original Legend of Zelda to the Oculus Rift in a title named ZeldaVR.  So far only the first dungeon is available in the free demo (for those that have an Oculus, of course) but the group plans to have the full release by March.  Feel free to download the demo here or check out the original Joystiq post for some videos of the game running.

Our take: I think this would be a great new experience and perhaps it could even give way to a whole new scene of ports.  The down side is that all this hard work definitely cannot be charged due to copyright laws and there’s still nothing stopping Nintendo from shutting it down, but it’s still cool.
