A new glitch found in the original Nintendo64 version of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time has set the speed run community on fire. The glitch, found by YouTube gamer and Twitch streamer Exodus122, allows any item within the game to be equipped by Link. Exodus tweeted on Monday that he had managed to equip the Deku stick, usually only usable by child Link, as an adult. It was also soon confirmed that other items ignored the in-game age limitations too, and even proved to work in the original Majora’s Mask.
It’s particularly exciting for fans of Ocarina of Time as the game is almost two decades old and yet Exodus has shown the community that the game still has secrets waiting to be unlocked. There’s a lot of potential for improving speedrun times with the new glitch, although it’s not yet known if any world records have been beaten. According to Speedrun.com the 100% completion record set last year by player ZFG at 4 hours and 15 minutes still hasn’t been beaten.
Exodus122 has discovered a number of glitches in his time playing Ocarina of Time, with many glitches shown in action on his YouTube channel. You can see his latest discovery in the video below.
