Watch Someone Try To Play Pokémon Gold/Silver On The Oculus Rift

Remember Pokémon 3D -- the first-person perspective Pokémon Gold/Silver? Well, it's been made compatible with Oculus Rift, letting players see the world of Pokémon through the eyes of their trainer.

It needs some tuning -- dialogue is well to the bottom of each lens and somewhat difficult to read, as are the battle commands, which sit far to the right. As the narrator says, battle view is not optimal but the game is in beta. Going into a shop, the wearer has to tilt his head far to the left or right to see what he's buying.

As a proof of concept, though, it's intriguing, and shows that if you can play it, someone will try to play it on the Oculus Rift.

    This was really cool until the battle started. I wish they kept the standard view. Maybe from the trainer's perspective would work better.

    very very cool and nostalgic, but the binocular vision seems a bit weird (though I'd imagine they fix that once out of the beta…)

      Its doesn't look like binoculars when you are actually playing it in a rift. That is just how it appears in the footage.

      its only binocular view while they are recording it, if u were looing through the goggles it would look like a single screen

        ok cool. thanks for clarifying lol. was gonna say, they have some serious work to do there. shows i haven't looked at much occults footage yet eh? ;p

    The wall of trees looks terrifying from first person perspective.
