Haven’t picked up a Nintendo 3DS handheld yet? Oh, I guess the massive price cut, and the release of several quality first-party titles just wasn’t enough for you? Nintendo may have finally found the perfect way to entice you stubborn folk. Bundles, obviously!
Set to release on November 24 comes two new bundles, ready to attract the core Nintendo fanatic. The first is a Mario bundle, coming with a Flame Red 3DS and a fresh copy of Super Mario 3D Land included. The second bundle is a Cosmo Black 3DS, with a special Zelda themed intricate gold design along the outer trim of the 3DS, along with signature triforce logo. The bundle will appropriately include a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D.
Drooling? I knew you’d be interested in adding one to your Christmas list! Both bundles will release for $199.99.
First seeing all the headlines that a brand new Zelda 3DS was on its way got me all excited for a new adventure set within a 3D universe. I read it wrong, however. In actuality, Nintendo is preparing a new Zelda 3DS, as in Zelda themed 3DS handheld.
Pictured above (and below), the new handheld will feature an intricate Zelda themed design on the top of the handheld, with iconic Triforce symbol featured in the middle. The sexy bundle will also naturally come bundled with The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, offerings franchise fans another way to take part in the on-going 25th anniversary celebration. The new handheld will release in Europe on November 25 — hopefully we’ll hear of a North American release soon.
Take a look at the handheld box below the break.
The above video shows YouTuber RobbieDaRobber using the GameCube controller to play the theme song from Skyward Sword, using the Ocarina in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. If he’s moving too fast for you, follow these notes:

Got it? Now give it a try! Sounds pretty awesome to us. I assume this means playing the reverse will give us an Ocarina rendition of “Zelda’s Lullaby?”
When Nintendo released The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D for the Nintendo 3DS, fans abroad were thrilled. Finally, one of the greatest video games of all time would see a proper release with new graphics and stunning 3D visuals, updating the N64 title into a next-gen masterpiece. Now, Link cosplayers are asking for more.
Operation Moonfall is an online community comprised of Zelda fan sites, set on bringing back Ocarina’s N64 sequel, Majora’s Mask, to the 3DS. Seeing as how Nintendo’s been on a remake binge lately, the idea doesn’t seem too far fetched. In fact, this all started when series producer Eiji Aonuma spoke to Nintendo Power about the possibility.
“It’s been 13 years since Ocarina of Time was originally released, and one of the big things that we made this remake possible was that there was an outpour of emotions from people who said they would like to see this game done,” stated Aonuma. “I think certainly if there was a similar output of emotion and clamor from fans for a remake of Majora’s Mask, it wouldn’t be an utter impossibility.”
During their E3 2011 keynote, Nintendo broke news to fans that the company would be celebrating the 25th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda franchise in different ways. Aside from the orchestra concert series being held worldwide, and the release of Ocarina of Time 3D and Skyward Sword this year — not to mention Link’s Awakening on the eShop — Nintendo also surprised fans by announcing their plans to release The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords as a free download to DSi and 3DS owners.
Today, Nintendo confirmed that the game’s release is near, available next month in the DSiWare and eShop channels. The game focuses on multiplayer fun, and is said to be a port of the original GBA version of the game.
I hope they keep pumping these commercials out. Actor Robin Williams and daughter Zelda were the perfect pair to promote the release of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, give his daughter’s namesake. That’s why the duo released a trailer for the game’s release last month.
Now, the father and daughter are back, in a brand new commercial. Check it out above.
Music has always been a theme within The Legend of Zelda universe, but the greatest Zelda song ever created might not even be in the game. Instead, it’s from the game itself. A collection of sounds, tunes, screams, and effects, compiled into an incredible rendition of the can-can.
Confused? Listen above. Trust me, you’ll be in heaven.
Initially, only the first wave of Club Nintendo members who register their copies of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D were going to get their hands on an exclusive limited edition OST. Now, Nintendo announced they are opening that offer to EVERYONE who registers by midnight:
The generosity stems from errors on Club Nintendo’s website today, where a special prompt displaying confirmation of the CD offer post registration didn’t appear for many — including myself. Thankfully, Nintendo was kind enough to alleviate the headaches, and will offer the deal to anyone.
So hurry up, people! Time is running out.
We heard recently that Zelda Williams, daughter of actor Robin Williams, was filming a secret video with Nintendo, we just didn’t know what it was for. Now we know that secret shoot was a commercial for the upcoming The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, releasing this Sunday, Father’s Day. Fittingly, she did the commercial with her father!
Robin named his daughter after the iconic princess from the video game series, so it’s only appropriate that the two, both fans of Link’s many adventures, gave something back to the franchise. Check out their trailer above!
The day is almost here. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D is arriving this Sunday for the 3DS — it’s also Father’s Day, so getting dad a pair of argyle socks may have to suffice.
In preparation for Link’s 3D debut, check out the latest trailer from Nintendo, presented in glorious CG. In some ways, it’s amazing, but in others, it’s quite misleading. Sure, the new 3DS version of the game looks incredible, but it doesn’t look that good. That’s like, Wii U good!
Anywho, check it out above. Loves it?
