Fixed Ocarina Of Time Water Temple fog on Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch Online version of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time seems to have had an issue with the Water Temple fog fixed in an update.

Since the launch of the Nintendo Switch online expansion pack, many gamers have noted the poor emulation quality of Nintendo 64 games, with Nintendo gradually adding updates that improve performance.

Videos and images from Twitter show that the absence of fog in Ocarina of timeThe Water Temple on Switch appears to be fixed. A clip from MondoMega shows the enhanced footage below.

The issues with the Water Temple are emblematic of Nintendo 64 emulation quality issues, although Nintendo has been constantly updating games to combat this. When the Nintendo 64 games were launched, Ocarina of time had transparency issues with the water in the Water Temple as well as the lack of fog, and now both of these issues have been resolved.

Bugs in paper mario have also been fixed, as the one that caused the game to crash and erase save data while the player is pairing up with Watt has been resolved, as noted here.

Last year, Nintendo said it took widespread criticism of its Nintendo 64’s emulation quality “very seriously” and “continued to look for ways to improve overall performance”. For us, it’s all about quality and great content at great value.

Today (February 25) also marks the release of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask on the Nintendo Switch Online service, which received a release date and new trailer last week. Majora’s Mask joined additions like Banjo-Kazooie to the subscription service.
