    So very much Zelda. It wasn't enough for Nintendo to announce the new Zelda: Skyward Sword for Wii this morning. A few minutes ago at a post-E3 roundtable, the company's maestro of game design Shigeru Miyamoto casually mentioned that arguably the most beloved Zelda ever, Ocarina of Time, will be coming to the Nintendo 3DS.

    Some people (like me) consider Ocarina one of the very best and most important games of all time, so that's a pretty big deal.

    It seems like the final game's title will be The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, based on a non-interactive demo I got to see before Miyamoto's Q&A. That demo pretty much just showed Ocarina's original intro, with Link riding around on Epona, galloping around the overworld in front of Hyrule Castle. Same music and camera angles as the original, to my recollection, but the graphics were very obviously a lot more detailed (and in 3D) than those in the old Nintendo 64 game.

    In fact, unlike Super Mario 64, which was ported pretty much as-is to the original DS for its launch, Ocarina 3D will receive significant updates, according to Miyamoto. For one, director Eiji Aonuma pledged to make amends for the deplorable Water Temple in this updated version by adding a touch-screen method of quickly toggling the iron boots on and off. Hooray!

    I'm eager to hear what GB thinks about the 3DS. If they could wrench Jeff out of the Microsoft area and force him to play one that would be nice.

    "I can't wait to buy Zelda."
    "Which one?"
    "All of them. Over and over and over!"

    Holy god damn fuckin' shit christ almighty! 
     
    .... I really liked Ocarina of Time. And with quick-toggle iron boots? *drool* 
     
    Give me some 3DS Wind Waker and I'll forgive Nintendo for the last year and a half of meh. Actually, Kirby and Metroid did that for me. Thanks Nintendo!

    I REALLY hope the buttons are used and this isn't a Phantom Hourglass/Spirit Tracks monstrosity. Sure, let us use the touch screen for menus and whatnot, like the iron boots toggling, but let me use that nub and those bottons. PLEASE.

    I would ASSUME that now that they've got that analog stick thing that they would let us use it... God, I hope so.

    This, coupled with the Kid Icarus reveal earlier is making me want a 3DS more and more.  The problem is that I don't want it for its feature (3D) I want it for those games.  It would be really nice if they would also play on my regular DS.

    None of the other stuff sold me. This did. Day one purchase. No joke. I remember opening that game up and it's gold cartridge at Christmas many years ago and I was just amazed over and over by that game.

    Wow, YES!  I haven't played Ocarina in a long time and thus a remake(?) is even more appealing to me.  I can't wait to relive those old memories and embrace that nostalgia.  Here's to hoping this is as amazing as I want it to be.

    I'd much rather the 3DS have an original Zelda game released around its launch, but hey, I love OoT as much as the next guy and it might be fun to replay everything with shiner graphics and in 3D. I'll be buying a 3DS regardless.
