European Ocarina of Time 3D special editions to come bundled with ocarina?

The Zelda games contain a plenitude of both real-world things (slingshots, animal abuse, time-travel) and things so ridiculously-named as to obviously be fake (oktoroks, tektites, and leevers). The musically-uneducated may have assumed that something as crazy-sounding as an "ocarina" must obviously be one of the latter. But some special editions of the 3DS version look to be packaged with a real ocarina.

Collector : Ocarina et Stylo pour Ocarina of... by LMJV1

Here's an unboxing video of the ocarina, which comes packaged along with the Ocarina 3D manual and a wooden pen (which is how all ballpoint pens were in the olden days). While industrious types on the Internet are of course all over gimmicky translations – recently going so far as to re-translate the original Zelda games, yielding new hints and better scriptwriting than traditionally associated with the titles – don't bother hitting up any parlez-vous français friends for clues as to how you might secure this choice package for yourself. As the narrator himself says, there's no word yet on what territories might be getting it, or what editions it'll come packaged with. Which is probably just as well: all you kids complaining that the Water Temple is hard obviously haven't tried making a tune come out of one of these things.

    @Killburn474 Agreed, that Ocarina looks like it works and could play all the melodies from the game, that would be sweet if it comes with a booklet on how to.

    That looks awesome. Who cares if it looks plasticy and cheap it is still a collectors item!

    SERIOUSLY what is with the European love nowadays lol I know the US economy sucks, but so does everyone else's.
  • Robusken - May 24, 2011 3:29 a.m.

    Noooo! @.@

    Plastic ocarina? It's gonna be airy as hell, but I still kind of want it.

    Please tell me that I was not the only person who mentally followed up "oktoroks, tektites, and leevers" with "...too, but with your help our hero pulls through!"

    I heard this was only in Greece. It also looks like a cheaply made plastic poundshop toy too. Not all that interesting and probably will never actually hold any real value. I'd actually pay a fair bit if it came with an actual Ocarina instead, there is a company that makes them.

    Booya! Suck it Americans! It's our turn to get something cool :P
  • Smash_Bro - May 23, 2011 10:40 p.m.

    Rien est juste!! >_<
  • EnragedTortoise1 - May 23, 2011 10:28 p.m.

    Looks kinda cheap and plasticy. :P
  • SadFace - May 23, 2011 10:05 p.m.

    OH MAN I have to get this now. I mean, I was obviously getting it before...but I was originally going to get it AFTER a 3DS.
  • Ilyere - May 23, 2011 9:48 p.m.

    I was pretty sold on Ocarina of Time 3D... But a bundled ocarina is just a must have now. Being a collector fan, this would be fantastic to add...
  • Kilburn474 - May 23, 2011 8:30 p.m.

    @therawski Agreed, I'm quite sick of getting shitty weapons, maps and avatar items. I'd much rather have a PHYSICAL item (hat, keychain, shirt, figurine, art book, coundtrack etc.) than some nonsense DLC..
  • Nap1400 - May 23, 2011 8:24 p.m.

    Reggie, you better let this thing into America... Wait, it's missing the Triforce symbol on the part you blow into! :(
  • therawski - May 23, 2011 7:45 p.m.

    How come Europe gets all the cool stuff and we get stuck with the midwest?
  • SpikroddNG - May 23, 2011 7:19 p.m.

    Well, time to buy a 3DS... EU only? FUCK EVERYTHING.
  • Fuzunga - May 23, 2011 7:16 p.m.

    Is there even a special edition of this in NA?
  • fellfromthesky - May 23, 2011 7:11 p.m.

    I need that bundle
  • jackthemenace - May 23, 2011 7:11 p.m.

    WHOA... Almost makes me want to order a 3DS, purely for this. Almost. But I have absolutely no intention on buying into one gimmick, just to get another.
  • veryweirdguy - May 23, 2011 7:10 p.m.

    AWESOME. I don't even have a 3DS (yet) and I want this.
