After all these decades, The Legend of Zelda The series is still one of the biggest franchises in the industry, with many eyeing 1998’s Ocarina of time to be the best entry ever. As a video game that influenced open-world titles, the original installment maintained Link and the titular Zelda among the game’s most memorable characters. As a result, there was a remake of the aforementioned Nintendo 64 version, which now comes with a unique feature.
In a recent video uploaded to YouTube, CryZENx, the modder who managed to recreate Ocarina of time in Unreal Engine 4 showed something not typical for the long-running series. Essentially, this remake now comes with co-op play, meaning more than one player will be able to jump into this reimagining of a Nintendo classic. In the description of the video, the creator says that the co-op mode will go from Kokiri Forest until players defeat Gohma.
Ocarina of timeKokiri Forest is one of the most well-known locations in this entry, home to the Great Doku Tree as well as Link’s House.

Still, the fact that he is at all is quite interesting, especially since the The Legend of Zelda games are generally not known for their multiplayer features, traditionally sticking to a single-player experience.

It was also part of an important era in video game development. With many 90s video games using 3D graphics, Ocarina of time sits alongside many other classic titles that helped usher in the next phase of gaming.
