Zelda: Ocarina of Time, widely regarded as one of the best, if not the best, Zelda title in the series has an unofficial fan-made PC port, titled Ship of Harkinian, and it is available for you to get now. This comes before the expected April release date.
Zelda: Ocarina of Time’s PC Port will offer full keyboard support, HD graphics, widescreen options, and more PC options for fans to relive their childhood all over again. The port is called Ship of Harkinian, and was created by the Zelda Reverse Engineering Team, which – you guessed it – reverse-engineered the original code to bring the game to PC.
The Zelda: Ocarina of Time PC port, or now called Ship of Harkinian, offers multiple features you would expect to see on an official PC port, including full keyboard support, controller support, widescreen options, and HD graphics, as well as other features, such as modding. Yes, modding will be supported in Ship of Harkinian, and the creators have also stated that they are working on adding 60fps, text-to-speech, twin-stick camera controls, HD models, and more, which will come at a later date.
To play the fan-made PC port, you will need to get yourself a “legally-sourced ROM”, because while the code itself is legal, the assets used in the port still belong to Nintendo, making it “illegal” (copyright, am I right?). You can watch the full livestream, cheekily called “Ship of Harkinian Direct” – a nod to Nintendo’s livestream series “Nintendo Direct” – below. To grab Ship of Harkinian, head over to the team’s official Discord server here.
The team is also currently working on Zelda: Majora’s Mask and Zelda: The Minish Cap, and they also have a listing for Zelda: The Twilight Princess.
