Nintendo says The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is set for release on the 3DS come June 19. The remastered N64 classic will bring Zelda fans enhanced 3D graphics, new intuitive control scheme and new-ish adventures to play through.
Along with the pleasure of 3D with no glasses and portability, the new release of Ocarina of Time will retain analog control with the 3DS Circle Pad, and will allow players to use the touch screen for the inventory system.
The old tale of Hyrule’s creation and the pursuit of the Triforce will also include the Master Quest second adventure. Originally intended as an expansion of the N64 title, Master Quest was later released as a bonus for pre-ordereding The Wind Walker. The second adventure will not deviate from the upgraded look and feel of the original title, and offers revamped dungeons and more challenging puzzles.
Recently celebrating its 25th anniversary, the Legend of Zelda franchise is thriving in this new gaming era with Ocarina of Time coming out in two months and Skyward Sword coming to the Wii soon. Nintendo continues to meld nostalgia with the latest innovations in console gaming, showing its savvy this time by choosing a title many consider to be one of the best video games ever as part of its initial escort with the 3DS.
