CONFIRMED has it that we're going to see a classic return in 3D on Nintendo's new handheld.

UPDATE: 6/15/10 6:35 PM Nintendo of America confirmed this on their twitter account #nintendoamerica

At this very moment, Nintendo is holding an invite-only roundtable session that includes, among others, Shigeru Miyamoto. For those following at home, this same session at last year's E3 was where Miyamoto unveiled the first piece of artwork from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

Word on the E3 streets indicates that we may see another Zelda unveiling at the roundtable this evening, in the form of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D for Nintendo 3DS.

Is this true? Is it complete B.S.? Nobody knows except those that are in the roundtable right now. We'll find out as soon as we can!

I hope this isn't just a straight port and more things like the 3D are added.  I'm not talking so much as graphics as tweaking things that were improved in later games, like assigning the steel boots to a button press.

I also wonder if this is going to be some special series they start releasing (ala "New Play Control') didn't one of the press releases earlyer today mention a 3d Starfox 64?  And why 64 games? it seems the 3DS is capable of doing things more powerful then that.

Miyamoto has just said the this game is merely an experiment and not the real deal. ::)

That would be acceptable only if the 3DS had some compelling new software to go with it, which, right now, it doesn't. The original DS launched with an N64 game and it was pretty lame, it's too bad the 3DS seems to be following the trend (which actually started with the Game Boy Color).

Because Nintendo 64 games are easier to remake, party due to having the same resolution as the 3DS. Plus, getting that graphical overhaul is something that may entice the people who have already played (and might own on VC) the originals. GameCube games would look the same, and they are also more recent, and even playable on Wii. Also, as far as I know, we don't yet know the size of the 3DS cartridges, so they may not be large enough for disc games.

Whatever.  I already own Ocarina, so I don't need it in THREEEEEE DEEEEEE!!!

I don't need another version of 00T even if it's Stereoscopic 3d. I beat the master quest and I'm done with 00T. I love the game but they will have to do allot to impress me. Voice Acting, orchestrated music, brand new areas, etc.

Watch, if Nintendo did that the OoT loyal fans would complain about it.

The first launch games for the 3DS would be limited to 2GB maxed on 3DS cards, then later they will continue to get bigger. Just like how the space sizes of Snes/64 Games got bigger when needed.

Man, I hope this comes out. I LOVE buying Ocarina of Time. I could buy it again and again.

But seriously, that would make a beautiful showcase for the 3DS so I really do want it.

oooo I just looked at the pics...  it looks so nice!  I thought I would only like it if they completely remade the game for the 3DS but I don't care if they remade it or just ported it so long as it looks this nice in real life!  I never bought the game multiple times, just once for the N64 and once for the Gamecube (although I never beat the Master Quest...) and I for one would love to buy it again for Nintendo's sweet 3D handheld!


as much as I LOVE this idea and as much as I know it's easy money for them... I still wish they would remake Zelda II :-(

So I suppose the fourth time of me buying this game will be the charm.
