The Legend of Zelda: Gets New Upgrade on Nintendo Switch. The Nintendo Switch Online version of the classic Nintendo 64 title The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time looks to have been improved by those at Nintendo recently.
When for the first time Ocarina of Time first joined the Nintendo Switch Online library last year, many fans took issue with the emulated version of the game that Nintendo had made available.
New Upgrade on Nintendo Switch
Thus is specifically, one section in the game’s Water Temple stood out as being particularly rough. This update The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on Switch already arrived earlier in the year, Nintendo seems to have made even more improvements in recent days.
As claimed by @OatmealDome on Twitter, a version 2.0.0 update Nintendo Switch Online was recently let loose by Nintendo. In this process, process, various fixes for some titles on the service were also pushed out. One of the main fixtures in the question happened to be for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time which improved the game’s overall visual fidelity. These problems that were seen within the Water Temple have now been rectified, making the game that much better overall.

This alteration to Ocarina of Time via Nintendo Switch Online is not a very big one. Nintendo is listening to fan feedback. Following the outcry from a number of fans last year when The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was released, there was no response from Nintendo on whether or not fixes would be incoming.
For Nintendo to actually go in and make changes to this version of the game. This makes us realize that the Japanese video game publisher isn’t trying to merely do the bare minimum. This is with these new ports of its classic titles. There is no surety on whether the changes will come on Ocarina of Time in the future remains to be seen, but this update sets a good precedent as we move forward.
Nintendo Is Already Blocking Videos That Show Emulation On Steam Deck
The Steam Deck has officially arrived. Valve is hoping as it shakes up not only the handheld gaming world but also the way people use and play PC games as now they can do it on the go.
If we talk about the handheld world, wading into it at this particular moment in time is an incredibly brave thing to do. The Nintendo Switch has now sold more than 103 million consoles. This is not a number the Steam Deck will be looking to match. Though this is it still must be pretty daunting to go up against the Nintendo heavyweight.
This shows us that Nintendo might be a little intimidated too. This is not because the Steam Deck will be taking Switch sales away, but because people are already emulating Nintendo games on the industry’s newest console. As it was highlighted by dex3108 on ResetEra, a video posted by Phawx on YouTube showing how well the Deck can emulate Nintendo titles has already been removed on copyright grounds.
Since Nintendo comes after people using Steam Decks to emulate games first. So after the console launched, is no surprise. The company doesn’t tend to play well with others, especially if those others don’t have permission to do so and risk-taking money out of Big Mario’s pockets. Just last month Gary Bowser was given jail time for hacking Switch consoles and Nintendo thanked the FBI for its work on the case.
When you use a Steam Deck to emulate Nintendo games it is almost impossible to trace, of course. Phawx was only caught out because they shared video footage of how it looks and attempted to teach others how to do it. As much as Nintendo might want to try, it can’t stop everyone who will use the Deck to emulate its games from doing so. What it can do is quickly takedown “how-to” videos so the pool of Deck owners with emulation know-how is limited.
