Video: Now Wind Waker Has Had the Oculus Rift Treatment

A look through Link's eyes

Earlier this week we showed you a video of Metroid Prime played with Oculus Rift; now it's the turn of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker to take a step into virtual reality.

It is, once again, the work of YouTube user Chadtronic, and like all of these demonstrations admittedly uses slightly naughty means to bring us the end result using the GameCube original. It's intriguing, though, and the vibrant world is throbbing with life and shows off the environment and characters we all know and love.

Although the first-person point of view seems a bit dizzying at times, it adds a lot of dimension to gameplay; it's a natural extension of the first-person camera we could use in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD. It is especially thrilling when Link glides around with a Deku Leaf or is facing brutal attacks during sword training.

Take a look at the video below and let us know what you think of the demo. Which game would you like to see next on the Oculus Rift?
