The Legend Of Zelda series is one that needs no introduction. Considered to be the more RPG-focused counterpart to Nintendo’s star franchise Super Mario, the series has lasted for over 20 years and has now become, for lack of a better word, legendary amongst gamers. And while all of Nintendo’s Zelda games can be considered A+ titles, one game in particular is considered by many to be the best of them all. Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time was the franchise’s first step into a new dimension of gaming with the N64, and fans were captivated immediately.
Now with the game set to be reborn on the 3DS, Nintendo has confirmed that Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D will include not only the original version of the game, but the Master Quest edition as well.
It goes without saying that it was good news to hear that a port of Ocarina would be one of the many, many titles in the Nintendo 3DS library. Nintendo made it clear that they didn’t want the game to be just a re-tread on another system, so they made a few tweaks to help it become a new experience, while still holding fond memories for fans of the original title.
Now news has surfaced that will give potential buyers even more incentive to buy Nintendo’s newest creation.
In a short video from Conservative New Media, Nintendo Of America’s David Young announced that not only would the aforementioned tweaks be improving the game, but that the release would also include the Master Quest version. He touted it as essentially “two games in one,” giving fans more than their money’s worth.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the extra title, the Master Quest edition of the game was for those who pre-ordered The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker back in 2003. Buyers received a port of the original game for the Nintendo Gamecube, with redesigned dungeons to create a new challenge for players.
The Master Quest version of Ocarina of Time seemed to be for those who had played through the original game so many times they could walk through it in their sleep and including it in the 3DS version could be for the same reason.
Are you looking forward to Ocarina 3D? Is the inclusion of Master Quest enough to get you to buy? Do you think you’re up to the challenge of an even harder Water Temple?
The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time 3D is coming out this June for the Nintendo 3DS.
