The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D’s Intro Movie Hasn’t Changed

By Ishaan . April 25, 2011 . 3:17am

Nintendo recently updated their Japanese website for the Nintendo 3DS remake of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time with the game’s intro movie. The 3DS version is almost identical to the original Nintendo 64 version, but thanks to the redone visuals, it might feel a little closer to the opening to Twilight Princess.



The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D is due out this summer. Japan gets the game on June 16th, Europe on June 17th, and the U.S. will see it June 19th.

    Wow. It was like I was slapped with nostalgia. But in the beautifulest way possible.
    I need to go play some OoT now…

  • Im glad they left it…..The whole point was to make it a nostalgic adventure.
    Btw make fun of my buddy here lol

    • Whatever I’m going to say about your buddy will probably result me getting banned. What do you mean you’re glad they left it? left it as in?

        I don’t know what to say about your friend…I think kind of like him.

    That intro! I always loved that game. Stayed up past sunrise playing it all the time.

    why am I not excited for this

    • OneOkami

      Because at the end of the day, its still the same game that came out 13 years ago (one that I played through 3 times already, including Master Quest). I have a 3DS, but I’m passing on it.

      • Suicunesol

        I haven’t played the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time in 10 years.

        With improved graphics, 3D, portability, I’m going to thoroughly enjoy this. It doesn’t matter how many times I’ve played through it– a good game is a good game.

        • OneOkami

          My personal point was also that I still have the game and I can play it right now if I want to. I’m not saying anything about the quality of game, I’m simply saying its the same game.

          • Suicunesol

            I suppose it’s just personal preference then. :x I still have an N64 in my cupboard, and LoZ: OoC has been sitting in the slot for 8+ years. I just don’t play because I’ve played it to death.

            But I happen to think improved graphics is a good reason to buy the game again. There’s even a bit of re-designing going on. For instance, Hyrule Castle Town had a lot of new visual elements, and I liked what I saw. It’s enough to make me want to re-explore and see what else was changed/”improved”. I might be pleasantly surprised.

      Do you like Zelda? a lot?

      Anyway, perhaps it just didn’t hit you. I’ve been very busy lately and thus my hype and attention span for, say, Skyward Sword has been low (they haven’t hyped it that much yet too) But I know I’ll go bollocks when it comes out.

      • Guest

        Yeah it’s one of my favorite games. But like every new system that comes out, I’m more excited for NEW games, not rehashes that I played a dozen times already. PSP got lauded for this when it first came out.

        • lostinblue

          fair enough. I also tend to fall into that, I’m gonna buy this but it’s not the “OMG launch day!” I know I played it before and I’m low on money, so… Of all things I’ll probably let this is the backburner.

          But I am excited for it.

    • Exkaiser

      I’m not, either.

      But it might be a little different for me, since I don’t even like Ocarina.

  • lostinblue

    The footsteps for the horse/epona now seem really out of place.

  • Can someone explain why the water in this game glows toxic green? It’s the one thing that really gets on my nerves, the lighting and colour of the water is just off.
