New Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D trailer shows off all the new features

In the lead up to E3 2011, it’s easy to forget about one of the most pleasant surprises of E3 2010: Ocarina of Time 3D. We at GR are plenty excited and we’ve even begun our most ambitious FAPping yet, but in our exhaustive coverage, perhaps you missed details on the new features added to the 3DS remake. In case you missed the info in our previews, Nintendo just sent us a simple little video that makes it all crystal clear.

Using items with the touch screen is our favorite improvement featured, as seeing Link seamlessly take on/off iron boots at a moment’s notice in the Water Temple brought a tear to our eye. Meanwhile, those hint videos seem plenty lame, but after watching the original recently, there are at least a few segments in OoT that give the player almost no clue what to do, so the option isn’t a terrible idea for new players. Getting to replay all the boss fights seem nice, though it’s a strange proposition to add replay value to one of the densest games of all time.

How do these updates strike you? Innovative enhancements or gilding the lily?

    Can't wait to see an original Zelda game on 3DS. As someone said here, Wind Waker-like graphics would be a perfect fit for the handheld.

    @GringoStar i agree with you , would of like to see Oracle of Ages, Oracle of Seasons and agree with the wind waker, that game would be the best looking for the 3ds.

    I really think that this game is over rated. Nintendo should have focused on remaking some other Zelda games such as Oracle of Ages, Oracle of Seasons and Minish Cap. Hell, I think a Wind Waker remake would be great on the 3DS.

    Wow. The graphics look REALLY improved! I like how they were sure to show the Water Temple and emphasize how much better it will be.

    recently bought a 64 to play this game again, and it's just as good as i remember (except for the water temple, thats just as bad as i remember). It's going to be tricky to remake one of the best games ever, but it looks like it will be done. (Might even ignore the NGP for this!!)

    It's funny that they advertise the Water Temple and the iron boots in the trailer. NEW FEATURE!
