Development has finally been completed on The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time PC Port, and you can go and play with Link and ride around Hyrule Field on Epona right now because it's also out now!

This port has only been made possible because of a fan project to reverse-engineer Ocarina of Time, where the code itself is legal as it doesn't use any leaked content or copyrighted assets. To play the port, you will need to find a legally-sourced N64 ROM for the N64 game.

Harbour Masters, the brain behind this fan-made PC port, announced the release of its project in true Nintendo fan-style - with their own Direct-style announcement. You can even get it running on your Steam Deck!

But Harbour Masters isn't resting on its laurels, either. The developers will be working on adding more to the port, including text-to-speech, 60fps visuals, HD models and audio, more texture packs for the game, and support for both Mac and Linux users, among many other things. There are already several mods available for the port too - from the sublime to the ridiculous, of course - so there are a plethora of things to do on top of replaying and beating one of the best Zelda games ever.

We can imagine this will be a boon for speedrunners in particular. Ocarina of Time is a hugely popular speedrunning game, and this fan-made PC port makes it much more accessible to players.

Harbour Masters has also said they want to do something similar with Majora's Mask, which we're sure many people would be hugely excited about. The reverse-engineering is underway for that right now, which is just over 45% completed.
