Images of a proof-of-concept version of Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time featuring working portals have been revealed by a developer.
Unpublished images of a Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time prototype featuring magic portals has been revealed for the first time. THE Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of time underwent a number of changes during development as Nintendo was using it and Super mario 64 as a testing ground for the Nintendo 64 3D hardware.
Unused data loads of THE Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of time was discovered in Nintendo’s “gigaleak” 2020, including scenes shown in early tech demos and screenshots sent to gaming magazines from the 90s. It is clear that Nintendo was still experimenting with Nintendo 64 hardware during this period. development Ocarina of time, especially when a second collection of prototype data has been discovered on a F-Zero X cartridge. 3D zones Zelda The game was once planned to be much larger and contain more NPC character models. These ambitions were probably too much for the N64 to manage, resulting in a reduction in levels to the more familiar forms that players can explore in the Nintendo Switch Online + expansion pack and other versions of Zelda: Ocarina of Time today.
It was revealed earlier in 2021 that there was once a Zelda: Ocarina of Time Technical demo with portals by Giles Goddard, who worked at Argonaut Games and helped develop several Nintendo games. Goddard revealed on the MinnMax to show his creation a proof of concept demo for Ocarina’s Time, which featured magical portals in Hyrule Castle. He said the portals were attached to moving crystals and the player could even see what was on the other side of the portals in the reflections on the crystal surfaces. Goddard was asked again about the tech demo on Twitter recently, and it first revealed images of the Hyrule Castle portals.
Goddard explained the Zelda: Ocarina of Time The demo was made in 1996 or 97, and he asked one of the in-game artists for the visual resources to do the demo. He also disclosed that he probably shouldn’t have a demo save in his possession. It is not known if these prototypes Ocarina of time backups will be kept online or will remain in the possession of Goddard (or Nintendo).
It’s always fascinating to see those early versions of classic games and wonder what could have been. Nintendo’s gigaleak was packed with information about the various iterations of THE Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of time and how Nintendo chose to present the game to the public during its development. This all-new portal demo footage provides a preview of a version of Ocarina of time who could have stolen of the portal thunder for nearly a decade.
