This will put the Spring in your step!

We have all been speculating that Ocarina of Time 3DS would be one of the earlier games released. Some sites have even gone so far as to assume it will be a launch title.

Well, we finally have word from Nintendo themselves – sort of.

Hit the jump for more details!

Amongst a list of 3DS software to be released in “Spring 2011” in Japan, Ocarina of Time thankfully showed up. Unfortunately, the list was no more specific than that, leading some to believe that “Spring 2011” actually means on the launch date of the handheld; this has not yet been confirmed.

It should be clarified that this list only applies to Japan. The NA/European list shows all of the same games as “TBA.”

While we already suspected that Ocarina would be one of the early releases, it is nice to receive confirmation of this fact so early, especially when you take into consideration that it was less than five months ago that we were even made aware of this remake’s existence.

Stay tuned to ZU for further updates regarding Ocarina of Time 3DS once they become available.

    YAY!!!!

    • Mr. PWNGE

      LETS HAVE A PARTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • rolando

    so will they make it for the united states I hope so because if they dont we will be sad

    • Herrel

      Of corse they are making it for the states it was announced in the states so it will be in the states.

      • Keimori

        Don't forget Canada! we count as North America too!

  • "Well, we finally have word from Nintendo themselves–sort of." I just have to say, way to build suspense

    The list only implies to Japan–meaning that OoT 3D might come to the U.S. later? I don't mean to be a wet blanket, but this is pretty usual in terms of Japan getting the best games first, and leave us hanging (due to shipping orders, translation, and changing the text to English, I understand). However, as long as they get it out I'll be fine with this.

    • ChainofTermina

      ST came out in Japan last. {shrug} something to consider I guess.

      • You learn something new everyday. 😉

    • James Widdowson

      The original Ocarina of Time came out in Europe and America before Japan.

  • ILiekZelda

    Spring 2011 huh?Sounds pretty funky to me!FUNKY FUNKY FUNKY!!!!

  • Lizzy

    the pain of 5 freaking months… NINTNEDO!

  • HylianPwnage

    I was actually expected a Q4 2011 or Q1 2012 release date so this is good news! :3
    On another note:
    Is Skyward Sword still Q1 2011?
    For the record, I don't care how long these games take as long as they're worth the wait! :3

  • silver_hero

    Don't forget Skyward Sword 😉
    There's a chance that it could be released before the 3DS, since it's being aimed for an early 2011 release.

  • Zaiku

    Zelda is more popular over in the States than in Japan believe it or not. That's why US got ST and TP before Japan. Hell, it just may, and I damn hope that we get this first if not early as well.

    • Shadowknight1

      We probably won't get it before Japan unless by some miracle we got the 3DS first. 😛

  • Shadowknight1

    You know, it just occurred to me…I'm more excited for this than I am for Skyward Sword. Maybe that's because SS has one trailer and pretty much nothing else is known, whereas I know Ocarina of Time is a quality game.

    • Joko tree

      OOT is great but I can play it on my GC and the remake won't be that different Just little problems fixed and in 3D, but SS on the other hand is new and very interusting not just because it's before OOT but it's the begining of the Master Sword.

      • Joko tree

        But I like the remake.

  • QueenxLink

    Aw man, more waiting… Well it'll give me time to play Skyward Sword! Even though I'd probably beat it in a week……

  • Blade of Evil's Bane

    Of course Japan will get it first. You can't blame them, I mean they created the console… though I am secretly cursing for their priority

  • LinkFan

    please please please

    oh wait i have no money.

    part time job here i come.

  • Link
