I have a shameful confession to make: I’ve never finished The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. The furthest I’ve been? The water temple. That’s the three-quarters mark, true, but it might as well be the start, in view of the raves lavished on this game (you know, like “best game ever made in the history of civilization and frankly time immemorial, amen”).
My failure to follow through had nothing to do with my affection for game, the game just got away from me somehow, and by the point I turned back, it was too late–we were on to stuff like The Wind Waker and Twilight Princess (both of which I did finish, for the record).
Needless to say, the forthcoming Nintendo 3DS version of Ocarina of Time (also, needless to say in full 3D) is perched tip-top my playlist. Have a look at the latest teaser trailer:
What’s more, I get to see it start to finish for the first time when it’s released on June 19th this year. As they say, every slightly pixellated lovingly-offbeat-Japanese-style-fantasy cloud has a silver lining.
