    The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D is a great remake which does (almost) everything right but falls short in a few areas.

    - Censorship
    - Crescent moons are removed because of their religious associations
    - The music in the Fire Temple is changed due to its religious association
    - Blood is green
    - Blood at the bottom of the well is gone

    - Lighting
    - The Forest Temple, Bottom of the Well, Shadow Temple and fight with Ganon are too bright, detracting from the dark atmosphere of the original game

    - Music
    - Music tracks are slightly different

    - Stairs
    - The stairs look like shit (not a change but still worth mentioning)

    The changes are discussed throughly in this video. I'd like to add that the vines which were removed from the fence in the Forest Temple should be restored.



    The censorship issues could probably be quickly fixed with a few texture replacements. Not sure how exactly to change the lighting (I'm not a programmer). If the music tracks between the N64 and 3DS versions are stored in different formats then converting them will probably be a time-consuming task. Turning the stairs from a 2D texture into a 3D model is probably more effort than it's worth.

    Now that Citra supports HD textures, it would be great if someone or a team of fans could develop a patch and HD texture pack to create the definitive version of Ocarina of Time 3D.

    If you are that irk'ed about it. Why dont you go and learn everything needed to actually change what you are asking for instead of just leaving this here?

    if you are dedicated enough and want this enough then look into doing it yourself or forming a team and helping

    You aren't the first to ask.
    Places like here and here, among many others that are a Google search away, have fans asking for some sort of "uncensored patch" for the 3DS port.

    Other than what those above me have already pointed out, there shows no promise of a mod, like what you're looking for, to show up anytime soon.
    In fact, the modding community for OOT3D is rather barren. A quick glimpse at the game's GameBanana page shows nothing but a single reskin mod.

    So the chances of an uncensored mod to appear is rather slim at best.
    But hey, there's always a chance.

    Considering how much attention OOT N64 gets from modders compared to many other retrogames, it's more possible than not that someone will come and make a patch with some of this stuff.

    The blood spatters are definitely possible to restore with Citra's texture loading. I did a rough test with some stock blood images I found on google images just to see if it would look okay tiled. I think a good artist could pull off a decent looking texture.

    The blood is not a separate texture in the 3DS port (dunno if it was on N64). You have to bake it into the environmental textures There appears to be three textures in the Well that need to be edited. And one texture in the Shadow Temple.

    I didn't get to the Ganon fight yet, so I don't know if his blood can be restored. It's green ingame, fixing it will depend on whether the dumped texture is also green. If so, a simple palette swap will do the trick. If it dumps a monochrome texture however, actual hacking will be necessary.
