When Ocarina of Time came out in 1998, I was 17 years old. And really stupid. I genuinely would never have known there was such a thing as an 'Ocarina' if it wasn't for that game. I often wondered if sales of Ocarinas skyrocketed as a result of the game's release. Now that the remake is about to be released overseas, St Louis Ocarina, who make and sell the instruments, are attempting to highlight the buzz to raise awareness of the humble Ocarina. Ocarinas are real, dammit!
I have often considered buying an Ocarina in real life because of Ocarina of Time.
I know. Tragic.
