How To Build Your Own Ocarina Of Time Arcade Cabinet

We see a lot of Nintendo fan projects at My Nintendo News — however, none of them have stopped us in our tracks quite like this one. If you have ever wanted to build your own The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time arcade cabinet, featuring a full 11-button N64 layout, you have reached Mecca. Over at Instructables, user phrazelle showcased his project, including a comprehensive how-to guide regarding how to build it, what you need, and photos documenting the entire process. Check out the guide here, along with the picture of the finished project below. Will you be trying your hand at this?

      5. That is not what having haters means. It actually means that people generally don’t like you. Tom Hanks doesn’t really have haters. Neither does my dad. Neither Do I. Just throwing some examples. Mitch Helberg didn’t really have many haters either. Was he doing it wrong? You’re a shit loaf.

      6. Ah it’s refreshing to see many of you dumb hoes come at me. Are all of you nothing but the same bitch just with different names? Either way all of you are nothing low broke down bitches who simply say the same shit repeatedly. Who gives a fuck your dad or any if those irrelevant bitches you listed off not i. Keep trying though many people will try, all will fail. Your just wasting your spewing out worthless bullshit that I give no fucks about. Carry on bitch.

      7. Lol did you really just say Tom Hanks, your dad and yourself don’t have haters? Okay,

        1. All celebrities and movie stars have haters you dumb fuck.
        2. Really, comparing yourself to a movie star? Stop ego triping bitch.
        3. Lol wow, adding your dad to that comment showed how much of a loser you are. ‘My dad is cool, he isn’t hated!’ Are you and your dad best buds?? Awwww how cute, I guess you have nobody else to turn to when you are a huge prick and loser.

        You are not reasonable, hella not an adult, and I’m pretty sure you’re a ball-less little bitch boy so you’re not an adult. Now gtfo you troll wannabe.

      1. Not for gay hating christians who have the nerve to be against gays but for pot and claim it’s in the bible. There’s bibles that say pot is evil and the work of the devil and such. So it’s not even your religion that makes you against gays. You just don’t like them and use your church as an excuse which is even more pathetic. Seriously dude, take 420 off your name cause you’re an embarrassment to every pot head there is.

      2. Why does it have two joystick layouts? It is a one player game. And none of the buttons are labeled. Yea that is built like shit.

  4. I love the Raspberry Pi. You can do much with it, given you know how to. Although I probably like Arduino boards a little more.

  5. To be fair, I’ve always wanted an Arcade game unit like Mario Bros. I found one online for 4,999$ and it even needed some cable to make it complete. Meh, maybe if I win some lottery….

    1. I just can’t find the logic in it, other than for nostalgic reasons. Why pay so much money just to play a game in a cabinet? You could honestly pay someone to build one for you cheaper, and this setup here is pretty cheap and easy for even a beginner to make. I don’t even think it requires any soldering, which makes it even easier to build.

      1. Um, because there are people around who actually played games in the arcades and love the nostalgic value of owning a cabinet to do some gaming? Just because you and your army of Call of Duty retards have no idea what gaming is really about doesn’t mean the rest of us can’t enjoy some retrogaming any way we feel like it. Eat it.

      2. She said nostalgic reasons, and she is a long time gamer herself, so she probably played in arcades too.

      3. I like this person’s view on gaming. You either play on expensive masochistically inclined cabinets with the ergonomics of an iron maiden, or you’re a casual dudebro FPS moron. No middle ground.

      4. Yea, i have nostalgia for arcade games. Games Like Turtles in Time, Final Fight, Mortal Kombat. Those are the type of games I want if I get an arcade cabinet. Ocarina of Time is a long adventure game, not really made for arcade style playing.

        Still looks bad ass, but it is kind of silly..

  6. I don’t get it.

    Sure … it looks really nice sitting on a table (No, really. The art used and build quality is very impressive), but having an N64 controllers buttons spread out like that would be as bad as trying to play on a qwerty keyboard, and why are there two sets of controlls?

    It’s a terrible way to play a Zelda game or any non sidescrolling brawler/fighter N64 game for that matter, and if it is meant to be used to play anything BUT OoT or MM (like arcade fighters), then why make it Zelda themed at all?

    Nice looking, but a tremendous waste of time to design and build, IMHO. Why even make it? What purpose does it serve besides take up space while going unused?

  7. I don’t get why you’d want to play Zelda like this. Holding Z and R while alternating between the other buttons doesn’t sound fun. You might as well play it with a keyboard.

    It looks cool I guess. Is it necessary, probably not.

  8. Just a few things on this – the cabinet plays 7,200+ games from 12 systems. It’s not just an OOT cabinet, hence the two sets of controls. N64 isn’t too bad with the button layout, but it took a minute to get used to. Mario Kart is pretty sweet. It sits on a table and is played from a chair. Adventure games aren’t bad. I played through the GBA title DBZ: Buu’s Fury the other day and it was great. MAME and NeoGeo is where this machine really shines though.
