I’ve always wanted Nintendo to remake the original The Legend of Zelda. Sacrilege, I know, but there’s definitely room for a different approach to the adventure classic, which not only spawned a franchise but inspired RPGs across the genre. While there are no plans for the NES Zelda redo it soon, there’s a way to experience it from a whole new perspective; literally: Now you can play the whole game from scratch. and first person perspective.
This is not Nintendo’s business. This game is entirely fan-made by DeTwelve Games and recreates the entire 1986 classic in 3D. It lets you explore Hyrule from the perspective of Link, battle enemies, earn items, and battle through nine original dungeons while looking straight ahead.
It’s crazy to see the map from this angle. In the original, your POV is limited to one screen size “frame” at a time. Here your perspective expands as far as you can see, only blocked by enemies or real-world obstacles. While anyone can enjoy the game, if you’re familiar with the original, it’s a special old treat.
This is not a real remake The Legend of Zelda—tthat game actually works on the original Apocalypse engine. That’s why it’s called The Legend of DOOM. (It’s also why this game exists without Nintendo’s lawyers losing their minds.) “DOOM” Related to that is the look of your weapon at the bottom of the screen, some of the weapon designs and of course the first person perspective. Maybe and heavy metal Zelda will the soundtrack be in a future update?
