The Promise of Ocarina of Time 3D

ZD writes: Handheld Zelda games always take a different course than their console counterparts. In the current 3D era, this mostly means having a top-down view. The Game Boy Color games, made by Capcom, built off the engine of Link’s Awakening DX (a remake — this will be important later) and bore more than a vague resemblance to its template. This made sense, as the Game Boy Color was the last in a line of mini-NES handhelds, culminating, of course, in a Game Boy Color Super Mario Bros. (3DS, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time)

Great article. I've been wondering this myself. As the article touched upon, handhelds have been the only place to get new games in classic 2D fashion. Specifically Zelda, Metroid, and Castlevania come to mind. I would love a 3D Zelda on 3DS but I also very much enjoyed Minish Cap, and even Spirit Tracks to an extent. I'd have mixed feelings about the switch to 3D.

I just want to add It's so refreshing to see an article checked for grammar and spelling on N4G. It really shows the author took their time with this.
