Part three in our ongoing Ocarina FAP takes us inside Jabu Jabu, a sort of fish-lord that has gone ten kinds of crazy and swallowed Princess Ruto (seen above). I take the helm and guide Link through Jabu’s pulsating innards while Carolyn, Henry and Chris watch and continuously talk about dated news topics. You’ll definitely know when we recorded this!
This is actually one of my favorite Zelda dungeons of all time; Japan’s love of classic Disney tropes makes it a loving reference to Pinocchio, plus it’s a thoroughly unique idea that hasn’t been repeated in a Zelda since.
Odds are I’ll fumble with the camera or make a few mistakes while running through the whole game, but keep in mind how hard it is to 1) Play a Zelda game for the first time in 12 years, 2) Carry on a conversation with other people in the room while paying attention to the game’s many puzzles, and 3) Attempting to make said conversation and gameplay interesting to watch. It’s a hard juggling act, so expect at least one of those three bullet points to suck at any given time!
