10 minutes of Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D gameplay

first_imgThe Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time isn’t exactly a new game – it came out originally for the Nintendo 64 back in 1998. What is new is the upcoming re-release of the game for the Nintendo 3DS, including updated graphics, 3D effects that make use of the 3DS hardware, and the Master Quest dungeons that were added when the game was ported from the N64 to the Gamecube.Now, one enterprising gamer managed to get his hands on the German version of the title, due to hit store shelves next month. According to his YouTube video description, he managed to play the game at a press event in Cologne, where Nintendo had the game on display. He says he got to play for about an hour, and of the recording time he had, he put together this 10 minutes of footage to share with the world.AdChoices广告Among some of the new features that’ll be exlcusive to the 3DS version are the ability to quickly equip and change items using the touch-screen on the 3DS, and to use the 3DS’ gyroscope for precise aiming when firing weapons.
