First Ocarina of Time 3DS Footage Unveiled UPDATED: Screenshots
In Zelda news on Wednesday 29 September 2010
Nintendo held their annual press conference in Japan today, and it came with lots of information about the 3DS (though, sadly, none about Skyward Sword that has been reported).
So, the 3DS. When is it coming out? February 26 2011 for Japan, and the less specific “March” for the west. How much will it cost? ¥25,000 in Japan (which equates to $300 or £190, though the western prices are always more expensive in practice). What games are coming out on it? Do I have a trailer for you.
The 3DS games montage trailer (which can be viewed at Kotaku here: http://kotaku.com/5650702/watch-almost-every-3ds-game-in-action) shows off the impressive range of games available, and their impressive graphics (but not their impressive 3D, for obvious reasons). One of the games shown is, yep, Ocarina of Time 3D.
Some footage from early in the game is included (Kokiri Forest and the first dungeon), which shows the game’s vastly improved graphics and character models, which we can only assume will look even cooler in 3D.
No word on whether the game will be launched alongside the console, or if we’ll have to wait a bit longer for it, but hopefully we’ll find out soon.
*UPDATE* Four new screenshots of the game have been released by Nintendo, giving a closer look at the updated Young Link, and more importantly, a look at the new touch-screen menu. Have a look here: http://kotaku.com/5650816/four-new-screens-from-ocarina-of-time-3ds/gallery/
