    The Legend of Zelda series, outside of a few spinoffs, is known for having some of the most renown single-player games to grace the industry. So, much like similar mods of other notable single player games existing, such as for Fallout 3 or Super Mario Sunshine, it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that a team of developers have banded together to create an version of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time that has online multiplayer. Given the simple name of "OoT Online", the project's goal is to allow for up to 15 players to join a server and play together. Development for OoT Online has only been active since October of last year, but it seems like the team has made good progress, recently showing off footage of two players. with both of them playing at the same time. Currently, the project is in pre-beta, and you can keep updated on it by checking out the team's Twitch channel and blog.

    What happens if you all play the Song of Sun/Song of Storms all at the same time with 15 people?

    It's not exactly normal multiplayer, but I think the randomizers already feature a way to link your game with another player so that items you pick up get added to the other person's inventory as well, which lets you split up and strategize. It's pretty neat.

    um, maybe this is a dumb question, but on which platform will you be able to play this?

    Awesome but I'd be much happier if they'd finally do some BotW multiplayer, even if it's just a small closed PVP arena to avoid the world (re)loading processes are driving crazy.

    Awesome! I'd love to experience this. Though there's this voice in my head, screaming "C&D."

    Zelda Battle Royale, 15 people drop into Hyrule and scavenge while Ganon (the equivalent of the storm) approaches!

    They can't do much if this is released as a patch for the vanilla ROM.
    Ironically, it's the projects that are made from scratch and use Nintendos assets that get C&Dd.
    Specifically the projects that are more ambitious. Then they'll continue to steal the idea and make their own version.
