By now we have all heard that the arguably best videogame of all time is heading to the Nintendo 3DS. Yes, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time will make an appearance on the new handheld system. You didn’t know that? Have you been living under a rock without a Power Bracelet? If so, Ocarina of Time is being remade (not ported) to the 3DS, and according to producer Eiji Aonuma, they’ve already been considering ways to improve upon perfection.
I’m sure each of us has our own mental list of things that we’d like changed in our favorite game, and the guys over at Shuffling Dead are no different.
Read on to find out what they would like changed!
Without further ado, here is Shuffling Dead’s list of the ten things they would like to see changed in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for the 3DS:
1. Modernize the menus
2. Fix the damn Water Temple
3. Increase the framerate, smooth out the animations
4. Fix and finish the sidequests, then add more
5. Give us the Bomber’s Notebook!
6. Greater rewards for greater tasks
7. Add more hidden areas
8. One more collect-a-thon for good measure
9. That extra content from the 64DD version
10. Include a second quest!
While much of their list makes a lot of sense (modernizing the menus is a given, considering Nintendo will want to make use of the touch screen at the bottom) some of their suggestions seem unnecessary. Do we really need a Bomber’s Notebook for such a straightforward game? Not to mention they also seemed to miss the most obvious needed change of all: Spirit Tracks showed us a truly immersion touch screen mic-activated enchanted instrument. Ocarina would do well to follow suit.
Regardless, it’s a fun read. Head over to Shuffling Dead’s site to read the full article with explanations for each of the listed items.
