Do not fret fellow North American residents. If you plan on purchasing the newest remake The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and want a fancy-pants soundtrack to go with it. Members of Club Nintendo can register their copies of the game to receive a copy of the soundtrack on CD format.
The catch is, it’s a limited time offer. When Nintendo first announced the soundtrack, they stated that only a certain amount of people who register their copy would be eligible for the soundtrack CD, but it seems like Nintendo changed their minds for the very last day.
“Due to strong demand and technical issues, we are extending this offer. Members who register the game by midnight, Pacific Time on Monday June 20, 2011 will receive the soundtrack CD.”
There is still time for those Legend of Zelda fans who might not have had the chance to get it a day or two ago. So grab your wallets, head to a game store and make your purchase.
Don’t forget to register! The Club Nintendo year of 2011 ends on June 30th! Make sure to have 600+ registered coins for an Elite prize.

Nintendo of America has finally revealed The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D’s pre-order bonus. Better late than never! Unfortunately, it isn’t nearly as cool as Australia’s pre-order bonus. Those who pre-order at GameStop will receive a Ocarina of Time 3D Poster, featuring art from the title’s original release. There’s no mention of how large the poster actually is, or if it is double sided like the European pre-order bonus.
The title will be launching June 19th in North America, so it won’t be much longer now. You can check out some of the new features in the title in the latest trailer.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D has more than just a new coat of paint on it. There will be all new features that will be exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS version. Features like motion controls for camera control, touch screen controls for items, and even Nintendo’s Super Guide feature. The latter two features you can see in the trailer after the jump.
The Super Guide has players crawling into the mouth of Sheikah Stones where they will “receive a vision of the future.” This video will help player solve puzzles, like how to access the Shadow Temple as the trailer demonstrates. We also get a quick look at the touch-screen controls for the title. It’s a little funny they specifically show that iron boots are now an item, not a piece of equipment. Either way, the Water Temple will be a lot less tedious now.

Australia has to go through a lot of crap when it comes to video games. Thankfully, on occasion they get something special to make all of us overseas a little bit jealous.
While Europe is getting a poster and cover for Ocarina of Time 3D, Australia will be getting getting a Ocarina and song sheet for playing Zelda’s Lullaby. And, of course, it all comes in its own special box. The set is only available at EB games, so you might want to switch your pre-order over if you already have it pre-ordered somewhere else.
Currently there are no announced pre-order bonuses for North America

It’s taken forever, but we finally have gotten some direct feed footage of Ocarina of Time for the Nintendo 3DS. We’ve seen some clips before in some montages, bust most footage was off-screen. Here we have two direct feed videos, one showing off the new visuals in the opening to the game and the other shows off touch screen controls for the title. There is also a single off-screen videos, that shows off the motion controls for the title.
Ocarina of Time 3D is set to release this June in both North America and Europe, so only about a month and half wait until we can finally get our hands on the title. Not only does the title feature enhanced visuals, it also includes the alternative Master Quest dungeons, a boss rush mode, and a hint system to help out players who get stuck.

There isn’t much faith in the current 3DS line-up at the moment. But hey, welcome launch windows. Even with a possible full scale hardware production underway at Nintendo, Miyamoto definitely is giving time to the newly launched handheld.
In an interview with Gamekyo, Miyamoto confirmed that the development of Ocarina of Time 3D is complete, but as of right now they’re still tweaking translations for the title. The game itself will run at thirty frames per second. Miyamoto also mentions a “mirror mode” for the Master Quest mode, but I’m going to say hold back on that one. The interview was translated from Japanese, to French, through Google translate into English. So I’m not sure if somewhere along the way that was just mistranslated for the mode being an alternative mode. Miyamoto said StarFox 64 3D’s development is also complete, which is launching July in Japan.

If you’ve been waiting for new Ocarina of Time 3D screenshots, here’s the mother load. Although, for some reason the screenshots only features young Link. Gasp, spoilers Link becomes adult. Either way, you do get to get a look at some of the early ares of the game here. Oddly enough, Nintendo has yet to bother to release a official full-length trailer.
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D is probably set to be the first real system seller for the Nintendo 3DS, even if it is a remake. It will be launching June 17th in Europe, followed by North America June 19th. Alongside the main game, the title will also include Master Quest, a rearrangement of all the dungeons, and a boss rush mode. The boss rush mode lets you re-fight specific bosses, or take them all one one-by-one.
If the adventure gets a little too rough, the title will feature in-game video hints like most of Nintendo’s recent titles. No mention of it actually completing tasks for you.

If you need more of a reason to pick up The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time outside of all new visuals and some user interface changes, then Nintendo might still have some treats up thier sleeves for you.
According to Iwata in the latest Iwata Asks, “the Nintendo 3DS version of Ocarina of Time is crammed with interesting things that weren’t in the Nintendo 64 version.” What things exactly? “We’ll wait to talk about those the release.” Thanks Iwata!
Recently it was announced by Nintendo of America that Ocarina of Time also features the previously Gamecube exclusive Master Quest, essentially giving you an alternate adventure to plow through when the title launches this June. Also new to the 3DS version is a new menu to easily switch between items, including those pesky Iron Boots made you jab that big red button every thirty seconds on the Nintendo 64.
Hopefully we will be hearing some more soon. The more content the better!
