The Legend of Zelda NES 3D

The Legend of Zelda NES looks lovely as an actualy 3D retro game

The Legend of Zelda fans, here is something really special for you today. YouTube’s “CodyCantEatThis Too” has created a full faithful 3D game of the NES version of The Legend of Zelda.

Unfortunately, this project is not available for download. Still, “CodyCantEatThis Too” has shared two videos. In the first video, he explains how he created this 3D version of The Legend of Zelda. In the second version, he presents 16 minutes of gameplay footage.

Do note that this isn’t similar to the Mortal Kombat 3D retro remake we shared a while back. Instead of producing pseudo-3D effects, this is an actual 3D retro remake of the NES game. Also, and since this is also a full 3D game, it’s more advanced – and better – than what 3DNes can produce.

To be honest, I’d really love to play such retro remakes of classic NES games. This is a concept that Nintendo should definitely look into. However, I don’t expect the big N to invest its resources in such retro ideas.

Enjoy the videos and stay tuned for more!
