Hey, guys. Long time no see, right? Well, the launch of OoT: 3DS is creeping closer and closer, and there’s more screenshot goodness to go around.
Fighting a skulltula
Fighting Phantom Ganon
Fighting Stalfos in the Forest Temple
Catching a fish in the Lake Hylia fishing pond

These are just a few screenshots. I’m certainly excited (or rather I would be if not for the 3DS’s ridiculous ToS agreement, which is another story entirely) and I know you all are, too. We have less than one month to go with the game making its debut on June 19. Rest assured that content will follow its release as promptly as possible.

I deeply apologize that we’re a bit behind the ball on this update, as we’ve all been focused on improving the website’s appearance and functionality. To get straight to the point, a new trailer for Ocarina of Time 3D has just been leaked, and we’d like to share it with those who have not already viewed it. The video is right below:

I must say that I’m extremely impressed with the visual appearance of the game. It feels so much more bright and crisp, as opposed to the original. This game is looking better and better all the time. I’m just a little wary of the estimated $300 price tag that’s rapidly approaching…

Link's Awakening ArtworkWoohoo! We have some great news; The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening DX is to be released on the Nintendo 3DS’s Virtual Console. IN 3D. Yes, that’s right; you’ll soon be playing one of the greatest Legend of Zelda games in a 3-Dimensional world. In only five months, actually. Which leads us to some more news:

We’ve just now found out that the Nintendo 3DS will be released in North America this March. No specific date has been announced yet, but we do know just how close it is until we can play that sucker!

Now there are two thoughts that come into my mind. The first one is “how will they handle the printable photographs?”. I can see a lot coming from this, seeing as you can even take 3D photos on your 3DS. Will they bring back the GameBoy Printer? Probably not, but I imagine that Nintendo has something special in store for our little mouse photographer and his Link’s photo album. The second thought is a little more obvious; when will we see the Oracle Series and The Minish Cap? And let’s not leave it there: If they can make those games 3-Dimensional, they can do that with The Legend of Zelda, the Adventure of Link and A Link to the Past.

Boy, am I ever excited!

Ocarina of Time 3D 1Many apologies for the lack of updates, but quite frankly, we don’t like fluff, and there’s been no real news for any portable Legend of Zelda games. Until now. The biggest development we’ve seen for quite some time is finally here: More news, images and even some video footage of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D has been released.

First off, I’ll start with the video. For those of you who are too lazy to watch the whole lineup, the “Zelda” segment starts at about 2:31 into the video.

I’ve got to say that, although it’s great to have the footage, five seconds doesn’t really do the game justice. Oh, well. I’m sure we’ll start to see a lot more in the near future. My guess is that Ocarina of Time 3D will be a launch title for the Nintendo 3DS. You’ll also notice that there’s a few new screenshots, as well (four in all).

Finally, we have the Japanese release date for the Nintendo 3DS. It is currently set for February 26th, 2011. That’s really not too far away, and I suspect it’ll deploy stateside around that period. European releases are usually only a few weeks later than their American and Japanese counterparts, so it’ll probably be close together around the board.

*Thanks to Zelda Universe for the news updates!

It seems that some footage of OoT 3D has finally come around! Check out the video for a look. (Skip to about 1:20 to view the actual gameplay.)

Looks exciting! I’m still on edge waiting for it (even though I’m more into Skyward Sword.)
