The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time


Release Date: 2011
MSRP: You know it'll be $39.99. And worth every cent.



[One day we'll have awesome boxart right here. Right here, yo.]



If you haven't played Ocarina of Time, you'll soon be able to correct this aberrant foible and enjoy it on Ninty's minty 3DS. OoT is considered among the greatest games of the Nintendo 64's library, and it's easily among the best of the Zelda series.

It has been confirmed that the 3DS version of the game will also include Master Quest. From Game Informer: "The Ocarina of Time Master Quest features the same plot and general progression as the regular game, but all of the dungeons have been reworked with harder puzzles. Previously the OoT Master Quest was only available in North America as a pre-order bonus for Gamecube's The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker."

Also, I think it's worth linking here the picture that 62t links a bit down the page. Feast your eyes on an awesome comparison shot of the graphics of the original Nintendo 64 version of the game and the upcoming 3DS remake.

So one guy said it so Master Quest is in it? I'll wait for more confirmation (not that I'd ever play that version anyway). Seems like Nintendo would have to do alot of work to 3D that Master Quest. Since it's different in layout from OoT.

Is Master Quest a preorder bonus/first run bonus? Or is it built in like Ys I & II? It just says that it's a bonus.


Yes! I am in a signature! :applause:

I would say that it's being presented as something which is included in the game to begin with, not as a preorder bonus.

Nintendo actually put a decent amount of effort on their GBA ports. LttP got four swords mode and new dungeon, Mario Bros 3 and Yoshi Island got new stages.

I just saw the picture and was blown away too, I really can't wait. Next week at a semi-local GS a Nintendo REP told me she was going to hold an event for people that have Pre-Ordered the system.

Looks really nice. I'll be shocked if the game is improved as much overall as that comparison pic will lead you to believe. OoT is amazing and I haven't played it in a few years so it will be fun to revisit. However, it's still not enough to convince me to spend $300 on this thing. I will get one eventually but I can wait a year or two until there are more AAA games released or the 3DSi comes out or whatever the inevitable redesign will be called... I still have way too many DS games to play through. I do want to try one out to see the 3D effects though...

Those screenshots look nice but they don't look as nice as I think a remake should look. I feel like Twilight Princess still had better graphics. This reminds me more of the HD re-releases we've seen on PSN. They're pretty but not enough to warrant a repurchase/replay through again.

I might feel differently seeing it in action, with it's (likely) improved draw distance and better frame rate in addition to all the touch-ups. I'm just not convinced it's worth $40, I'd rather have a new game.

That, and OoT still holds up graphically. The worst part about it are the jagged edges and the flat 2D fences, etc, and all of that seems present in the 3DS version - the enemies and models have a higher polygon count, no doubt, but the environments themselves needed the most work and look the least improved.

Are we now comparing the Gamecube to the 3DS? I didn't think it had that much power.

And for something as simple as fences and plants, if it was mapped as 3D, I would say the DS would crawl to a stop. Even games released with much more poweress use simple tricks to not make a Crysis...

With the Master quest built it, I think it's a warranted game to "rebuy". Hell it's portable, which is a feature no one ever had before.

I owned Ocarina of Time on my first Wii, and while I played it for a few hours, I didn't get too far in. I remember really liking it.

But personally, giving my gaming habits, I'm FAR more likely to play through the game on 3DS. And considering I've never really played it, this has become a must-have.

Damn those comparison screens are nice, the game really does look noticeably better on 3DS. I am super pumped for this game, too bad I won't have it to play at launch. In fact, it will probably be the first 3DS game I buy and it might not come out until at least June!!!

Iwata: Well, I feel that I've started to understand, little by little, what makes Ocarina of Time special. Of course, the Nintendo 3DS version of Ocarina of Time is crammed with interesting things that weren't in the Nintendo 64 version, but we'll wait to talk about those the release.

I think Master Quest makes it a better buy, but not enough to make me buy it because I have Master Quest on GC. I'll wait to hear what this additional content is to decide if I'll buy it or not.

This is the right idea right here ^^^. I am absolutely going to buy this game on day 1. This is most likely going to be the first 3ds game I buy despite getting a 3ds at launch. If they could somehow make it so I wouldn't want to stuff Navi into a bottle and chuck it over a cliff I would consider getting a 2nd copy.
