Excerpt: I was going to open this piece with some sort of monologue about how important The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is to gaming and gamers in general, but there’s no point. You all already know. While it had a couple of emulated re-releases on the Gamecube, Nintendo have finally decided to remake the game proper for the 3DS – and we’ve played it.
There were understandably large lines to play Ocarina of Time, even at the invite-only European 3DS Press Launch – though it didn’t help that Ocarina of Time was situated in an area marked on the map as the “bar” which actually had no drinks in it! Either many were desperate for booze or many were desperate for Zelda – or perhaps it was both.
