Ocarina of Time 3D artwork livens up slow news day

This has got to be one of the slowest news days in gamz jarnlist history. Perhaps this is the calm before the storm that’s E3, but in the meantime we’ll entertain you with news-like information. For example, Nintendo released to the press some “new” art for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. Technically almost all the images date back to 1998 and the original Ocarina, but these versions are of a higher quality than you’re likely to find elsewhere, and they still look great, so let’s celebrate these assets all the same.

And here's some nice character art:

Pretty sweet looking, huh? If this whet your appetite for Zelda coverage, you should read our most recent hands-on with it where we played the dastardly Water Temple, or our first and second rounds of screenshot comparisons between the original and the remake. Ocarina 3D goes on sale June 19.

    @Nin10Doh I'm afraid I've got you beat. I payed off my reserved copy weeks ago. With cash from my collector's Twilight Princess leather wallet. 'Ready for this game' doesn't even begin to F*CKING DESCRIBE IT!!!!!!

    I know it's a remake and all...but 80-90% or so of these images are old ones...

    I don't know what you guys are talking about! I've had that first image as a background for nearly a month! Oh, and BTW, i'm replaying Majora's Mask, i had forgotten how great that game is!

    The skull kid one really makes me want to play Majora's Mask again! Maybe after OoT 3D...

    I had a poster of that second picture as a kid. Don't know where it is now, though.

    I've seen them all except #1 and #3 before. I had the Nintendo players guide. Nostalgia bomb!

    Mmmm, Hate the shadow dungeon but love the boss. Bongo Bongo = Best

    Makes the game seem worse to see how much more lively the conception is...
  • bellium - May 20, 2011 12:38 a.m.

    I really want the HD version of the first one, for background purposes...
  • SparkleDevon - May 20, 2011 12:29 a.m.

    I agree, the first one is gorgeous.
  • Redeater - May 19, 2011 11:31 p.m.

    That first one is amazing. I can't wait until games look like that.

    I have my wallet in my hands right now. Damn you Nintendo...yet I love you so much
