17 new 3DS Zelda Ocarina of Time screenshots released

first_imgBeyond Pilotwings Resort and Super Street Fighter IV 3D, the release day games sitting alongside the 3DS did little to interest me. But as is always the case with Nintendo, it’s the promise of future releases that get you to spend your money on the hardware.Mario Kart always tops my list of games to get, but  Zelda: Ocarina of Time is also one of those must-own games, and Nintendo has done little to stunt our excitement for its release with a batch of 17 new screenshots appearing today.The re-release of the game is expected to arrive on June 19 in the U.S. and, as you can see from the screenshots, the graphics have been given a major overhaul. The other big bonus is the inclusion of the Master Quest originally added to the Gamecube release of the game. Your desire to play Zelda in 3D should also heighten your need to get this game, but if it doesn’t there’s always the slider to present a 2D experience – something that is a welcome feature for extended play time and tiring eyes.Anyone who has memories of playing through the original game will also be glad to hear that game designer Eiji Aonuma has promised to make control of the iron boots in the Water Temple area a much more pleasant experience. So less furstration, better graphics, and additional gameplay. Pre-ordered the game yet?With still more than eight weeks until the game launches, all we can hope for is more details to appear about the game and some better video footage. We’ve included all of the new screenshots below and the video of the game recorded at Nintendo World 2011 back in January.zelda1zelda1zelda2zelda3zelda4zelda5zelda6zelda7zelda8zelda9zelda10zelda11zelda12zelda13zelda14zelda15zelda16zelda17zelda_quadvia ShopTo.net and Wikipedialast_img read more
