    So, Kotaku (and others, I'm sure) got the word today -- The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3DS will release in the U.S. on June 19, June 17 in Europe (you lucky bastards).

    It was also learned today (at least, I wasn't aware of it before today), via the Australian ratings board, that the game is being developed by Grezzo. They are responsible for making the WiiWare game (available only in Japan?) Line Attack Heroes. The company is led by Koichi Ishii (Mana series).

    All I can say is, Samurai Warriors Chronicles was going to be my first official game purchase to sit alongside my 3DS next month, but it looks like I'll be holding out 'til June for something that promises to be just a wee bit better.

    Grezzo?
    Who the heck is that? When folks first heard a company named Grezzo was handling the makeover for OoT 3DS, the reaction was one of concern. But you might know them better than you think...

    The company's founder is named Koichi Ishii, creator of the Mana series and director of the series' most renowned installment, Secret of Mana. He's also responsible for the creature creations moogle and chocobo. For more information on Grezzo and Ishii, check out their Wikipedia page.

    I'm pretty excited about this game.

    I hope they improve all the models, not just Link's.

    Looking at the screenshots I think it's safe to say the entire game has seen a quality overhaul. [​IMG]

    Not quite. That Sheik looks terrible.
    And aside from the shadowing, Epona doesn't look that much better either.

    This worries me. I was under the impression that Nintendo themselves were personally returning to rework this classic game.
    Instead they've just passed it over to...Grezzo?
    I highly doubt we'll be seeing anything additional in OoT 3DS now, aside from the controls and graphics.

    Blaaaaaah Whenever I look at those screens... I just don't like em. I know it's a bit of an improvement from the N64 version but they couldn't fix the "paper fences"? Sheik's fingers look like they've been sharpened very nicely also....

    I'm hoping the final product will change this... I'll still be buying it but even something small like that could've been better , no?
    [Just saying how I feel about this.]

    I've always been meaning to get the Hylian Royal Family crest tattooed on my back (not huge, but above my shoulder blade). I figured that I should go ahead and get it the day OOT 3D is released, as a tribute. For that AND the 25th anniversary. All the planets are aligned. [​IMG]

    I'm pretty certain that even if this is the case, Nintendo wouldn't risk such a successful game and franchise from being messed up. Capcom have done ports of Zelda in the past which have been good, and after playing the OoT demo on the 3ds in Feb, I have no doubts as to how good this plays and how it will be.

    Yeah, I had never heard of the developer before, either, but after doing some investigating, I'm feeling a bit more confident. The company's founder, Koichi Ishii, was also the creator of the Mana series, and is credited as the director for Secret of Mana, among other projects. Either way, I'm sure nothing with the name Zelda on it is leaving Nintendo's front door without Miyamoto's stamp of approval.

    If you look at Ishii's other works, if nothing else, most of those games were of a very high technical quality, regardless of whether or not they ended up being fun games. OoT is already completely mapped out. All Grezzo has to do, really, is bring it to 3DS with a new coat of paint -- Miyamoto wrote the song; they're just performing it. [​IMG]

    This is probably the most awesome way it could have been said. You deserve an internet for that. [​IMG]

    Wow, we get a console AND a game 2 days before America.
    End of the world!!!

    I'd rather they'd spend those 4 days on translating the last story though.
    Lazy treehouse.

    Don't overdo the sarcasm. It's not like anyone's actually complaining.

    I can't wait... but the boxart is kind of boring.

    It's not bad... just boring.
