There have been few video games that have been this fascinating and exciting as Nintendo's Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Being released in 1998 it has set new standards to the 3D technology these days and has become one of the most bought video games ever.
Lately Nintendo has announced that they will release a remake of this classic for the Nintendo 3DS. Players who know the original game from the Nintendo64 will remember the old world of Hyrule, but will also notice many neat changes. The creators have reinvented the kingdom of Hyrule again, but did not change it completely. They just gave it a little makeover to grant it a new shiny look. Those who remember OoT from the Nintendon64 will also remember many empty places and the dead wasteland outside of Hyrule. The developers have added many little features to the nature and also added some social activity inside the houses, which makes the game way more interesting.
But not only the design of the game has changed, of course the game control had to change to due to the fact that it is not played with an N64 controller anymore. The touch pad of the Nintendo 3DS serves as a permanent inventory screen, which makes permanent switches to a seperate inventory, to select items, unneccessary.
What do you think about this remake of the Nintendo64 classic? Do you think it is a poor try to make money out of a relaunch of a classic game or would you actually buy it? If yes, have you played OoT on the N64?
Just let me hear what you think about it. I personally look forward to this game. Not only because I absolutely adore the Zelda series, but I'd also like to see the new changes and the bonus storyline.
