Many 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.
