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?
