In a recent interview, Eiji Aonuma told Official Nintendo Magazine that Nintendo’s newest upcoming handheld console – the Nintendo 3DS – is a perfect fit for the Zelda series:

“With the Nintendo 3DS, all of the new elements and the 3D technology is perfect for The Legend Of Zelda series. It’s everything from the depth that you get from riding through vistas or a more accurate sense of distance between you and the enemy you are fighting. I think it is perfect for this series. Of course we are very excited to see what it can do.”

Needless to say, we’re excited too! The 3D technology and updated graphics will certainly add a level of realism to the 3DS remake of Ocarina of Time. As the game is a beloved title for many a Zelda fan, it’s likely comforting for many to know that the only changes revealed thus far have been improvements to the overall look and feel of the game.

What about you, though? Would you prefer more than a visual update – perhaps extra sidequests or an expansion of the main storyline? Or should the remake of this classic title remain as close to the original as possible? Let us know what you think in the comments!
