The Traditional Chinese version of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time game was never officially released on the iQue Player. There are no images, iQue@Home pages, any page of it on iQue's official website, nor any documented announcements about it from iQue.

It is unknown why iQue decided to release a Traditional Chinese translation of one of the console's launch titles. It is possible that iQue once had plans to shift their iQue Player marketing to regions outside Mainland China (Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan), which they did after the iQue Wii failed approval from China's government.

Discovery

The game was first discovered in April 2017, as a cache file located on iQue@Home's CDS. It was once suspected to be the cache file of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask given the same file size and that game's iQue port was cancelled close to release; it was disproved when images of Majora's Mask was found under the ID "21031". It was then later suspected to be Ocarina of Time: Master Quest.

Trivia

    • The title of this game is "塞爾達傳說:時光之笛", which is a direct Chinese S to T conversion of the Chinese S title "塞尔达传说:时光之笛".

  • Various bugs present in the original Nintendo 64 releases and the original iQue version were fixed.
