Been wondering how The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D‘s Master Quest is going to fare next to the normal version of the game? Nintendo of Japan has released a short video with some new Master Quest footage, showing just how much more of a challenge Master Quest is going to offer.

Skip to 0:34 to see a direct comparison of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and the Master Quest version of the game. We also get a shot of Kakariko Village, which is looking pretty sweet. Game footage from a few different parts of the game show that Master Quest is definitely not for the faint of heart, showcasing a few parts of the game that are significantly more difficult in Master Quest.

Are you going to be giving the new Master Quest a go after finishing The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D? Let us know in the comments!

    Come on just about a month left. Every Minute is killing me by not having The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time. This might be my toughest challenge ever 🙁


      I think you are right >:(

      Tougher than BEATING Master Quest 3D?

  • Danimus

    Actually, I really wish they would allow Master Quest to be playable without going through the game first. It’s a real drag to have to do the same old game in order to get to the new stuff.

    man masterquest looks awesome at the 1:03 mark

  • starwebs1

    Whoa. That's all I can say: whoa. So many enemies in the Deku Tree… wow…

  • John

    Holy crap, I can't wait. I'm skipping the normal version and starting right off with Master Quest (if that's possible). That way it will feel like a totally new game 😀

    • cloverplayer

      nope, you have to beat the original first

  • Link

    Wait, why is Young Link fighting in the Forest Temple?!

    • Craig

      He isn't… he's in the Deku Tree – the forest temple is ghost themed with stone walls and a courtyard.

      • Link

        I meant when he's fighting the Wolfos…

        • Blizzeta93

          a wolfos guards the sacred medow.. Link has to defeat it to get saria's song.

          • Link

            No, I mean in the FOREST TEMPLE!!!
            At 1:06!!

  • Aura

    I'll attempt it, but it looks like I'll only get to at most Jabu Jabu's Belly!

  • DoctorYou

    I think it's be great if they did this for Skyward Sword, as well. ^_^

  • sagdashin

    do you have to buy master quest, or is it an toggle able addition to the regular zelda oot?

    • lockx

      You unlock it once you beat the game normally. It comes as part of the game.
