Modder Creates Star Fox Roguelike Title Using Ocarina of Time Code
The latest project from retro modder Kaze Emanuar is a roguelike Star Fox title made from the framework of Ocarina of Time
Nintendo has so many franchises at this point it’s no surprise that some have seemingly been forgotten. There hasn’t been an F-Zero game since 2004, Metroid fans are still waiting on any more news about Metroid Prime 4, and Star Fox is somewhere lost in space. One of those series is now being revitalized, albeit unofficially. Kaze Emanuar, a modder that has created multiple retro mods for older Nintendo titles, has created a new game entirely; a roguelike game featuring Fox McCloud of Star Fox.
The project, officially titled Starfox 64: Survival, is a commission, made by both Kaze and another retro modder, Zel. The game strands Fox McCloud on a strange alien planet with no way to repair his arwing space ship. Players will have to survive 30 nights on the alien planet, all while fending off its vicious inhabitants.
Of course, because the game is a mod it needs something to be based on, and in this case, it’s The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. While players will be running around as Fox McCloud, the game’s user interface, controls and gameplay systems all point towards the classic Legend of Zelda title, right down to the heart containers in the top left corner.
For those looking to try out the game, downloading it does take a few steps but shouldn’t be that bad. Instructions for playing the roguelike Star Fox title are located right in the description of its trailer. That being said, it’s better to download the game now rather than later. Kaze’s channel has received copyright strikes from Nintendo before, and this video could soon follow suit.
