Ocarina Of Time To Have Bonus Content On 3DS

Speaking in this week’s Iwata Asks, the titular Nintendo legend speaks with another luminary, Shigeru Miyamoto. It’s mostly focused on Star Fox 3DS but there’s plenty in there about The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina of Time too, especially the 3DS version, which is planned for June.

Most interestingly, Iwata confirms once and for all that the 3DS version will feature extra content over the N64 original.


“Well, I feel that I’ve started to understand, little by little, what makes Ocarina of Time special,” he says. “Of course, the Nintendo 3DS version of Ocarina of Time is crammed with interesting things that weren’t in the Nintendo 64 version, but we’ll wait to talk about those the release.”

June can’t come soon enough. To read what we thought of Zelda on the 3DS, click here.



  1. As long as it doesn’t change it too much like Master Quest did :(

    • From what I understand, Master Quest is actually included in the game. I wonder what other extras are going to be in the 3DS version O_O.

  2. Should I be worried? I rather like the purity of it all …

  3. Oh dear Nintendo, are you really trying to sell it that badly?
    Tampering with it might be a grave mistake… I do worry for Zelda fans

  4. The more I’m reminded about Zelda on the 3DS the more tempted I am to get one…

  5. So much of me is itching to rush out and grab a 3DS on release! I’m trying my hardest to wait for a revised version with better battery life though. Games like Zelda isn’t making the wait easy!

    • Agreed… but honestly, I don’t really know any launch games that I’d really buy for right now. Not a big fan of fighters or football…

    • It was mentioned a while back (I don’t think we picked it up) that there will be no ‘3DS Lite’ type revision coming out, as the 3DS already uses all the best bits. I think Nyko is also doing a beefier battery for it, although of course that’s an additional cost!

      • I also doubt that there will be a 3DS XL, since the idea behind the XL was family and older people, neither of which are likely to apply, because of the 3D tech. Unless they can alter the tech to work from multiple angles, that is.

      • There could always be an update.
        The DSi proved that updates don’t just mean changing the size, but actually adding features.
        Don’t expect one for at least 18 months though.

  6. Perhaps it’s some of those areas that was not finished for the 64 version like the unicorn-fountain or whatnot.

  7. Sounds like he could just be referring to touch screen controls to me.

    Past experience has shown that when it comes to Nintendo porting their games to handhelds, you shouldn’t expect much in the way of anything actually ‘new’.
