The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time 3D Will Look This Good In June

The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time 3D Will Look This Good In June

Nintendo announced at GDC today that it’s bringing Netflix streaming movies, 3D movie trailers and Sega Game Gear and Turbografx games to its Nintendo 3DS. It even announced a new Super Mario game for its 3D handheld! So here are some new screen shots of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D.

That Nintendo 3DS remake is planned for a release in June, a release that will hopefully make the wait for that other Zelda game – The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for the Wii – just fly by. Please enjoy these very attractive Ocarina of Time screens in lavish 2D.

  • Games so colourful are rare these days. Well, unless they were made for small children or have “ville” in the name.

    • Nintendo games are as rare back then as they are now (not very). Get off of your Windows/360/PS3. =)

    • I would have thought they’d have youtube plastered with 3D video’s of the 3DS in action (youtube supports a range of 3D viewing options including the simple cross-eyed approach). It’s not like they haven’t done some fancy stuff with youtube in the past.

  • I’m still waiting for a real zelda to be remade. This 3d stuff is cool, but it lacks zelda charm from when it was 2d. OoT will always be Oracle of Time for me, and incomplete without it seasons counter part.

    • Why? Zelda just naturally evolved into a 3D series. And the height dimensions allows far more mechanics and puzzles.

      Hell, once Ocarina of Time hit, the quality of 2D Zeldas has nosedived.

      /durr nostalgia.

    • Yeah, I find that odd, but at least the rest looks good.

      Now they just need to re-release Link to the Past, Majora’s Mask, and Wind Waker, and I will be a happy chappy.

  • What I really want to know is will they still have those awful 2D rooms where the camera is fixed (like Resident Evil) those parts killed the flow of the whole game, though probably saved them memory and camera problems back in the day

  • Looks so much better than previously, imo.

    My worries about it being a straight port are fading.

  • Seriously, while this looks quite damn well good I’m surprised (not really actually)that Nintendo are still pulling their punches so much.

    Have you seen many of the third party games on 3DS Nintendo? Like MGS Snake Eater and Resident Evil? Even the Wii which has more power than a Gamecube pretty much only has Super Mario Galaxy as what I consider to be graphically competent when it comes to Nintendo’s Japanese first-party games.

  • I love that they’ve kept everything true to the original, not like the masterquest crap they released on gamecube

    • Master Quest was a bonus. A replay, if you will. I can’t see why anyone would want to bitch about it.

      And see how this is a straight-up remake with some new mechanics to ease it into the 21st century, any Master Quest DLC will be greatly appreciated.

  • Looks amazing and I’m really looking forward to playing it BUT (and yes there’s always a but) Nintendo seem to be going with a very bright cartoony feel by the look of the first screenshot Shiek appears to be approximately the same size as link and if my memory serves me correctly Shiek was taller then link not sure how this will go down with the die-hard fans of the game but small changes like this due to the console may turn out to be something that isn’t received well on the other hand they may turn out to be recieved with open arms. in any case i’m certainly looking foward to it.

  • Played it. Thoughts:

    -Shit is 3D. Playing Kokiri forest with depth is fantastic. The game-world is far more beefed up. The previously ‘flat’ 2D fences (eg the one Navi flies through in the opening) now are actual models. Other objects in the original game also look much better, eg the tall grass etc.

    -Particle effects. You’ll run through and dust (fairy dust?) etc will fly at the screen. Pretty standard stuff, but seeing it in 3D is amazing.

    -Still iffy camera. This was the main complaint from me. While the game certainly LOOKS amazing, it almost fools you for a second because you expect the controls to be up there too. Once you use right analogue stick for camera, having to tap Z/L to centre it behind Link feels incredibly clunky.

    • I’m not so sure the whole added-depth applies to most fences, Steve. Have a look at that fence in the picture of Link racing Ingo – sure as heck looks flat to me. They probably only beefed up the fence Navi flies through because the camera follows directly through it.

  • Hey…
    Is Link shooting a projectile from his Master Sword in that last pic?
    Correct me if I’m wrong, but that wasn’t in OoT, just a larger spin attack at full health.. right?

    • No No No he its the phantom ganon boss battle, where he is basically playing a sweet game of tennis with magical energy!

  • glad to see Nintendo showing off games in 800×480.. better captures the quality total effect of playing in 3D.

    The first shots of 400 width made the 3DS look horible!… cant wait to get my eyes on it my self.
