Ocarina of Time and Super Mario 64, practically brothers
Curiously, Ocarina of Time ran on the same engine as the Super Mario 64 graphics engine., although it was receiving modifications as the title was developed. They’re like development brothers, which is why it feels so natural to use Link in the Mario game worlds.

DNA Games cites statements by Yoshiaki Koizumi, Nintendo designer: “We had been talking about using a horse even during the development of Super Mario 64, but it couldn’t be done (…) I was sure that in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time we would achieve it”.
