10 First-Party 3DS Games You Need To Play Before The NX Releases

The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time 3D

First-Party 3DS Games

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is largely considered to be one of the greatest games of all time, so it’s not surprising that one of the Nintendo 3DS’ earliest success stories was a remake of the classic adventure title.

Developer Grezzo worked with Nintendo to not only replicate Ocarina of Time on the 3DS’ smaller screen, but to make it better. Not only were the graphics overhauled with added detail, but certain dungeons (including the notorious Water Temple) were made easier to navigate. The touchscreen also fixed all of the inventory issues that the original game was plagued by. No longer did we have to fumble through menu after menu to equip an item we would want to take off a few seconds later.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D allows gamers to experience a classic without its age getting in the way. It was an incredible accomplishment, and it has replaced the N64 original as the version to play, in my eyes at least. It’s also worth noting that Nintendo did a similar treatment for its sequel, so those that enjoy Ocarina of Time 3D should check out The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D.
