I hope it's true. Zelda: Ocarina of Time is one of my all time favorite games. I hope the visuals are updated. I don't want n64 visuals with Wii controls.
That would be a huge disappointment if they don't upgrade the graphics.
majora's Mask was better in terms of content, lore, and mechanics.
But there's a way bigger demand for Ocarina of Time, like it or not. Both games are fantastic, btw.
It's already on the Wii on the Virtual Console. I already downloaded it. Why remake a game that looks good already instead of giving us an brand new adventure??? Not excited
They could re-release OoT every 5 years and I would still play it.
Orcarina was better in my opinion and was the game I bought a N64 for. Majora's mask was alright but I just hated being kid link the whole game.
I never thought I would buy the Wii but the day has come for me. This game defined my childhood gaming experience!
Is it possible to say "took them long enough" too many times?
nintendos waaay too lazy to create a new zelda, i dont want to a play a zelda game which i can already download on the wii, even it might have better graphics.
you're bashing them and calling them lazy based on a rumor? Something with no solid evidence. It could be true but it also may not. Why is it a cash in anyway didn't people rejoice when they got a remake of Ninja gaiden on the ps3 with updated visuals and a little extra content. Wouldn't a number of people rejoice if final fantasy 7 remake was announced. does that mean square won't make final fantasy 13 ? No it does not. Assuming this is true it could merely be a filler title so that Zelda fans don't have to endure the horrible pain that courses through them waiting for the next Zelda. Maybe its a taste of what we can expect when a full-fledged wii Zelda comes. On-topic . DAMN YOU NINTENDO!!! Remake Majora's Mask or Link to the Past. They are the best Zeldas ever . I 'd rather have a remake of one of those. A link to the past remake would....*universe explodes*.......
But its already been re-released before. Unless they at least update the game for this generation (in Wii terms anyway), then I don't see a whole lot of a reason to do this.
though I don't think anyone would mind if the Water Temple was taken out..that place sucks. Anyway. IMO, Nintendo is lazy. I have 2 versions for 64, Master Quest version for GameCube, and an emulated version I can run on my 1080 screen. No thanks Nintendo. I'd rather take a new IP...Mmmmm Mad World..Conduit looks shmexy too.
I'm game for a remake of the highest rated game of all time. It gives time to finish making a new zelda.
I hope your right. That would be a good play.
Perhaps...they now will correct their story on how it ended as people claimed the ending provided 2 different worlds...one with link and one without....but then again i dont think Nintendo wanted it to have a "real" story.
This does not excite me as much as a new Zelda built from the ground up for the Wii does.
Would be well worth the time. This just seems like a way to make a quick buck. Great game though, no denying that.
the prospect of playing ocarina of time excite, i still would've prefer a new zelda game that was built for the wii with the use of or a better engine than twilight princess..new games not rehash please..
Great move, actually. But please tell me there's gonna' be a new Zelda for the Wii, not just this remake. Otherwise, I'm not really sure Shiyamoto has his spark (well, the hardcore one, that is) anymore :( C'mon, I know you want to make it perfect, but puhleeeeaaase, just some news!
It can't just be a port with wii controls. Look at pikmin and mario power tennis for wii. It needs to have updated wii graphics with everything re rendered. Then something needs to edited or totally a whole different experience for a complete remake. If this pulled off, this will be a huge success for wii gamers and nintendo. Is this finally the game hardcore wii gamers have been looking for?
No hard drive to save those new graphics =[. I think nintendo shot themselves..or should I say, the consumers, In the foot, while they get us excited over a great game..maybe to cover their huge amount of deadspace (not the game)in between each game they release.
Nintendo are afraid of making a Zelda game that flops so they're going the safe route, making a remake of the successful N64 title.. God damnit Nintendo -.-"
I don't think this is necessarily being made instead of a new Wii Zelda title. In fact, it could very well be part of a strategy to build hype for a new Zelda game. Nintendo often uses Virtual Console releases in this way, so they could very well be using the same strategy with this Wiimake. (Also, note that Majora's Mask is finally headed to the VC in Japan, which could very well be another hint.)
Here are the questions I want answered: 1. Will the graphics be upgraded? 2. I think some kind of motion control is a given, but will it use the M+? 3. Is this a full retail release, a bargain priced retail release (like the NPC! titles), or a WiiWare title? 4. Will there be any added content? If so, how much?
... Damn! Why arent they answering you!
-No new graphics (to save space, time and money) -No new controls. Think about it, how would they add it to OoT? I mean, it worked for Twilight Princess because the mechanics slightly differed. -Wii Ware title probably ranging around the 8 dollar mark. -Maybe added new content? Or maybe something like Master Quest? I hope I'm wrong for 1 through 3. I just hope they'd start releasing things worth our money. Especially in these hard times.
Hmm mixed sort of feelings if true. Happy as get out because it's Zelda Ocarina of Time! Somewhat sad because it's a remake but hey I was amazed by the RE1 remake so why not a Zelda remake :)
Are you SURE they haven't made a mistake and they're just going to be releasing Majora's Mask on Virtual Console at last, which as Nugan pointed out is already announced as coming to Japan's VC soon? Or maybe they're just going to re-release Wind Waker on the New Play Control scheme? I don't see why they'd bother remaking Ocarina of Time. They already did it. It was called Twilight Princess. (snigger)
Isnt there a high def texture patch in the works for N64 emulators? I'd rather play the game rendered in HD with high def textures, than a remake using the Twilight Princess engine, again in 480p.
Could this be some early april fools joke ??? I dobt nintendo would remake the game three times... But if they do I really hope that there makeing a new zelda (from the ground up) on wii :D
i highly doubt this
hmmh it was already on N64 and Gamecube... is this REALLY necessary? i am sure they have the funds by now to try to make a Zelda game that TOPS Ocarina. if Sony for example was releasing a PS1 game that had already been on the PS2, again on the PS3... people would be SPITTING on Sony for milking it. but Zelda... that sh*t is sacred, no milking criticisms allowed. (as a gamer i love Zelda of course, Windwaker is one of my favorite games, but still.. come on... i hope this isn't true)
LOZ orcarina of time of the gamcube was a port, this, if true will be a full remake.
yeah, it was a port. so? it was still on the Gamecube. a remake is too soon IMO. if it came on the Wii HD or Wii 2, looking truly this-gen, then a remake would make sense.
Man, that'd be awesome. I'd want a completely full-fledged remake. Everything updated. Hope this isn't an April Fool's.
omg if they redid it with graphic enhancements, i would actually buy my first wii game since mario galaxy!!
Holy crap holy crap holy crap holy crap This is amazing. OoT is one of my most favorite games ever. I hope it's a very good remake. Wow, awesome.
I half think this is an April Fools' joke, but half of me thinks this is realy comnig at E3...
Great news or is it? I hope this doesn't ruin the glorious memories i have of the original - even though i do still play it every now and again.Tomb Raider Anniversary started wiping over older memories of the first Tomb raider so i stopped playing in the end Majora's Mask was jus as good as Ocarina but they are very different in truth and i don't think they should be compared Some extras too for Ocarina would be nice as would the graphics overhaul An extra challenge option would be nice too or at least an incentive to play more skillfully N64 Zelda's are wonderful games and this really is good news regarding the still best game ever created - well that and Halo
uhmm, i say majora's mask did a way better job than OOT. On top of that it had this really rare mood i havn't experienced in other games. But whatever >_< nintendo should not screw this up. Also april fools?
I always wanted a remake of LTTP but then as a huge zelda fan i don't want it either. The problem is that these games have their charms and that could break if they update the gfx and stuff like that. If Nintendo remakes OOT, for the love of old gamers keep the magic within.
then I'll get it. If it just uses Wii controls, then I'll wait for the next Zelda console game.
unless they r ampin the graphics or gameplay i dont want this game again. whats this the 3rd-4th time??? gc version, original and the zelda pack, wtf now this, we have it already on 64, if not we have it on the gamecube, if not u can get it on the gamecube and play it on the wii......they need to make a new zelda already, thats not a ds game that is. orcina was good but dang stop juicin it
there is a difference between a PORT and a REMAKE.
lets just hope its a remake not another port of it. tho lol not to sound stupid but i felt like twilight was a remake of orcina lol not exactly but just felt like it to me pesonally *EDIT sidar lol i think so too, but i'd rather have a new story and game, wudnt u??? new enemies that surpass ganon, new friends, a rival, somethin new. well thats what i want personally *shrugs lol
Well almost all zelda games take up the same story in a sense, difference are the puzzles and use of items. OOT was a 3D game of Link to the past, but thats not a bad thing, as long they are enjoyable it should be ok, i think.
Minis cap introduces a new end boss. So does Oracle of season and time ( if you use the codes you will fight Ganon eventually...but thats pretty much a "secret" end boss if you own both games else he won't show up) Funny thing is these handheld games actually take a different path from all the other stories of zelda. Links awakening had some sort of shadow as the last boss, named nightmare if im not mistaken. Zelda II had darklink( yeah and ganon) Majora's mask had ...Majora's mask.( LOL, no seriously) Zelda does introduces many different characters, many claim itsalways about Ganon and Zelda but this is not true.
most likely the OoT remake will use Twilight Princess graphics... which is a good thing, an extra dungeon, extra boss, would be incredible though
I didnt like waggling to swing the sword in Twilight so id rather leave it the way it is. I Know nintendo isnt going to redo the graphics.
TP was a last minute call, and they took a year to actually make the Wii version( delaying the GCN version ). I bet if they redo any control scheme for zelda it would be much better this time around since its made with the Wii-motes in mind. It says Remake not port =P Also saying they arent redoing the gfx...if that were true Punchout for the Wii would be using sprites right now.
Imagine updated Twilight Princess visuals on Ocarina of Time. *Drools* Do Want.
Yup Sidar MM is certainly a unique and powerfull experience iv'e not really had since then i'd say OOT was truly great but yes MM was intensely special regards to the emotional pull it's characters had on you I would'nt put one over the other in the way i also think LTTP is better than OOT for being so perfectly formed - in OOT you do still have this real sense of belonging to the world you're in even though it's not entirely as faultless as both LTTP and MM
" I would'nt put one over the other in the way i also think LTTP is better than OOT for being so perfectly formed " I'm glad there are some like you who actually think this. And yeah i agree, MM was in a sense, to me at least, depressing in the undertone of it all...Can't really tell what it was. I dunno The whole game just felt like if you actually had 72 hours, that death was uppon you. I need to play that game again...Fast too. Edit: LOL it just sounds like if im some sort of emo-goth kid. Just dont know how to explain it.
hopefully it's not just a wii control port. I doubt it though. If nintendo were to actually remake ocarina of time, they would pull it off. It's nintendo, they never screw up their main canon games. I'd buy it for sure, and i already have it on the n64, gamecube and vc. As for a link to the past remake, no thanks. I love the 16bit graphics too much to wanna see it in 3d.
lol i think i get it, MM really was that depressing but in a good way
S*** if the graphics are updated I'm going have to buy a Wii again.
Yes, the game was great. Woopty Doo, does it need to be re-released on every single nintendo console? All the Wii is doing is re-releasing old n64 and gamecube hits. "omg, omg, omg, no way, it's gonna be totally awesome! yay!!!!" ::rolls eyes:: seriously?
awwe man i cant wait that hyped up my anticipation for the year *prays for * golden sun III
I nearly threw my laptop up in the air in rejoice, but then I realised that it will probably just be identical to the N64 game but with Wii controls, similar to the play control gamecube games. If this is the case, I expect it to be a WiiWare game rather than a retail game. If I had the money, I'd personally fund an OoT remake with updated visuals and audio, but we need to face the fact that for Nintendo to revamp OoT so much, is almost like creating a TP sequel in terms of work needed. Try not to get your hopes up. If it is an update based on the TP styling and engine, then it may just be the greatest game ever v2 - but I'd be sad to see it on the Wii. If OoT deserves a remake, it deserves a HD remake on a competant console.
Oh hang on. Early April fools? I thought it seemed to good to be true.
...they'll get my buck for sure. That is assuming that: 1. This rumor is true. 2. It is indeed a remake, and not the 64 version with tacked on Wii-mote controls. 3. It has a few little new things in it along the lines of what Square Enix did with Chrono Trigger DS.
remake of zelda OoT = a good win, and probaly win come with a lot to do, not a simply remake
Aside from the fact that Wii can play it, unlike any real next gen visually title
Agree with my comment if you think its an April Fools Jokes Disagree with my comment if you thinks its True
n64 version will still be better, because i have a gold cartridge! unless they make it run at 120fps, but wii motion controls is a no no.. if they don't show me a trailer of a new zelda for the wii, then i am going to have to sell my wii, i'll wait til e3, if they don't, then, i am selling this peice of trash.
In my opinion... the only way in heck I could even justify buying this game if it included them levels mentioned in the N64 DD thing, you know more dungeons and stuff. If it doesn't I don't care if it's a remake or not... I'd just sooner dust off my old N64 and play Z:OoT on that... especially since the controller would be hella better.
Sounds like someone is having an early April Fool's laugh at the expense of this website. I could see Zelda64 being released on the DS, as the graphics wouldn't need to be tweaked heavily. To re-make it on Wii, they'd have to use the Twilight Princess engine, and I think they'd likely prioritize making a new entry in the series over a port if they were going to have to put that much effort into it. Also, the description of the game shipping with "a peripheral that would have "flute capabilities" is laughable.
You guys complaining about it being only 480p even if the polys and textures get updated aren't really fans. Just have to break it to you, probably should go play your PS3s.
