    • There are now 30 frames per second, much better than the 15-24fps of the original N64 cartridge
    • The blurry pre-rendered bitmap Castletown is now a rendered environment. With several new remodelled building exteriors, but still maintains the old camera angle.
    • The water effects of Lake Hylia have been improved.
    • The fishing pond has been changed with more textures adding a more rocky appearance and a waterfall has been added.
    • The tree wall has been replaced by three dimensional trees.
    • All 2D backgrounds have been replaced by rendered 3D backdrops with greater detail.
    • When viewed from Hyrule Field, Death Mountain is no longer a 2D cardboard cutout but a 3D model.
    • Temple of Time interior has been remodelled including a visible ceiling.
    • The inventory is now kept on the touchscreen and items may be equipped by the X and Y buttons.
    • The ocarina is now permanently placed in an area on the lower left corner of the touchscreen.
    • Due to a lack of rumble feature the Stone of Agony now emits a sound instead of the old “rumble” of the N64 controller.
    • In game text and music have not changed from the original.
    • Master Quest is confirmed as a second quest that requires the player to complete the game first to unlock.

    We already knew most of this. And it's definetly not worth a news thread anyway.
    But whatever. As I already said, it's nice that they worked around the rumble pack issue with the Stone of Agony.

    Either the sound needs to be horribly annoying that it makes your ears bleed, or they need to change the name of the Stone of Agony to something else like Chiming Rock.

    This game alone is a reason to buy a 3DS

    Even if this game had 0 updates and was a straight port I would buy it. The fact I can take it with me anywhere and play it on the go is the major selling point for me.

    All new info to me. Awesome stuff. =) Although I don't want to beat the game to get to Master Quest. What ever, it's still cool.

    I was wondering about what they would do with the Stone of Agony...

    As i've already beaten OoT, i'd like to go with master quest from the start... I got it with Wind Waker, but haven't had the time to go through it, but now with the 3DS I'd like to go through it one more time and it would've been awesome if it would be the master quest edition...

    its seems like revamped graphics all the way which is never a bad thing unless the camera is affected which here is not thankfully. I did not think the graphics were bad but dark for the N64 version.
    but considering this game has 30 FPS, what would have happened if it were 60 FPS? would it have been difficult to play it? unlikely to me so why stop at 30 and not go for 60 from 24?

    :3 I never played Ocarina of Time for real only on a emulator but never played the whole game so I think I will get this one and experience a game before my gaming time ^^

    This. But to be honest, I'm not surprised.

    Master Quest + OoT = 30+ dollars

    ten more for a remake with SUPERIOR everything (I'm assuming) = 40 dollars


    Sounds like a fair deal to me. I don't see why people are complaining so much.

    Sounds good to me. Not that I mind playing through the game to unlock Master Quest (as I haven't played the title in a long, long time), but I was hoping MQ would be playable from the beginning. Not a big deal at all, though - I'll still get it at launch.

    Man, That ultra blocky monster in front of link looks almost the same as the first G-Darius boss...

    [​IMG]

    Sadly, this boss looks a bit more detailed...

    I can tell you haven't ever played much Ocarina of Time. That isn't a boss or any sort of enemy and it has a lot more detail on the N64 and 3DS version than whats on that screenshot.

    now I won't get stuck again in the water temple... even though I already beat the game over 20 times, I still can't easily do the water temple.

    requires you to beat the first quest to unlock master quest....Nintendo you just cancelled my desire to preorder of the game. Because of the horrible timing issues on the promotional disc, I never gotten past human Ganon's energy balls of cheapness.
