I have been dying to play the game again and I have waited for this release to do so. I have seen the trailer in 3D and the effect is amazing! Plus the visuals are so nice, love the update.

In the strange case you have not played this game, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU! Buy it immediately

You are not Leo.

Speaking of which... hey Leo. Think this game will come out early in the Nintendo World Store?

The only good thing about the Robin Williams videos is the beard. But the beard is awesome so that's okay.

That's pretty cool that they're giving away the cd sountrack to those that pick up and register the game. Hope there's a decent amount available.

Didn't they say that if you bought the game you got a free ticket to the Zelda orchestra tour?

Agnates posted this a while ago.  Nintendo of Greece is actually a shitty company called Nortec.  This is probably a scam.  Notice the strategically placed "while stocks last" disclaimers.  They probably have 2 of each

The gold looks crap, though. The shading ruins it. The Australian one is the best.

I heard that the 3DS can't do AA in 3D mode, so it will look like SF4 or Nintendogs in 3D. If you found those okay it should be fine. I am awaiting the delivery right now, oh, it didn't show up. Sad

Guys, you have to check out the gamespot video of them playing Ocarina of time 3D. It looks so much more vibrant, colourful and smoother.


Above: Link's hair looks like hair now instead of parted croissants

What a difference thirteen years make! To truly appreciate the facelift Nintendo’s performed on its favorite son, you gotta see it next to the aged relic you to orginal Nintendo 64 version. The differences are night and day. [Disclosure: We captured the older footage from the GameCube’s OoT Master Quest disc, but it dutifully conveys the fugly visuals of N64 yore.]


Above: How's that title screen for ya?!


Above: Hyrule Castle comes with pronounced bricks


Above: Zelda's first appearance has been reframed entirely


Above: Ganon looks a shade more sinister


Above: No one did wood textures like the N64


Above: Kokiri Village has been overhauled substantially


Above: Now that's a place you wanna live!


Above: The Great Deku Tree's mouth looks even more inviting


Above: Even his death becomes more lavish!


Above: The Golden Goddesses no longer look like Oscar statues


Above: Facial expressions convey emotions more authentically


Above: See?!


Above: Thankfully, Link comes across like less of an asshole


Above: Hyrule Field goes even greener


Above: While this entrance gets fewer tiles in the 3D version. Weird?

Oh great. So if you live in Greece you get the Ocarina and all the other assorted goodies by pre-ordering.

If you want an Ocarina in the UK you have to:

"If you want a free Zelda Ocarina head into Game on Oxford St, London ( not sure if any other cities are doing this at the moment ) . They have a woman playing Zelda music on a harp and give you a free Ocarina if you try the game out on the stand there. You can also get your photo taken with some guy dressed as Link but that was pushing it for me"
