    A New Trailer Has Appeared for Ocarina of Time 3D

    A gaming classic has traded in its blocks and replaced them all with curves, and you can see the results for yourself in this trailer. Well, the blocks in the block puzzles are still around, but they can stay.

    Really looking forward to playing this game again. The improved visuals are definitely noticeable. I can't remember where it was, but I saw a trailer that showcased the original and the 3DS side by side, and it's quite astonishing how much difference there really is.

    Yes, the character models in particular look much nicer in the 3DS version, especially when you see it in person. People saying there's no difference are wearing some major nostalgia goggles.

    Kinda reminds me of the remake of Conker's Bad Fur Day to Conker: Live and Reloaded. I haven't seen that comparison video omegabyte mentioned, but I did see some screens. The screen shot of Link in the item shop in Hyrule's town looked dramatically different to me.

    Here's the comparison video I was talking about: http://www.gametrailers.com/video/ti...-legend/713293

    The most noticeable improvement is the color saturation, which is much brighter and more distinct in the 3DS version. The textures are all much nicer as well, the animation seems to be smoother, and the water and sky effects in particular are significantly improved.

    Still hoping for some actual new content, but it still looks good.

    That said, I don't plan on getting a 3DS until they make a Lite version or 3DSi or whatever, so it'll be a while before I play it.

    Yeah it does look noticeably different. With the brightness of the 3DS version, it looks like they take place at different times of the day. lol. The virtual console version looks like it takes play RIGHT when the sun is starting to rise. And the 3DS version looks like the sun has gotten at least halfway up. lol.

    Plus, the "fog" in the virtual console version (probably really just a draw distance thing) that is non-existent in the 3DS version.

    I've only played with a 3DS for a little bit, but the 3D does sort of strain the eyes a bit. I might have to mess with it more. But I'm glad it's completely optional. Even without 3D, the graphical capabilities are still pretty nice. I think I'm looking forward to the NGP more, but that's kind of getting off topic. Hehe.
