16th May, 2011 – In preparation for the remastered launch of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, one of the most critically acclaimed games of all time, Nintendo is offering a special game packaging which features a gold sleeve title sheet and an exclusive double-sided A2 sized poster for those who preorder The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D before it is launched on Nintendo 3DS across Europe on 17th June, 2011.

As one of the landmark titles in video game history, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time has been completely remastered for the Nintendo 3DS system and incorporates 3D graphics without the need for special glasses. Fans of the original game and newcomers alike will be captivated by the bold new visuals as they take control of one of video gaming’s all-time great heroes – Link.

The task in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D will be to guide Link on a journey of epic proportions, as he attempts to save the land of Hyrule from Ganondorf, the Gerudo King of Thieves, who is intent on ruling and conquering the land with the power of the mythical Triforce. For those who played the original classic game, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D will bring back plenty of nostalgia, whilst providing a fresh new approach and feel to the gameplay.

Thanks to the revamped epic 3D graphics and completely redesigned control system incorporating the Touch Screen, Circle Pad and the in-built gyro sensor of the Nintendo 3DS system, players will be able to guide Link on a magical journey through time like never before.

When you preorder your copy of the game, you will receive an exclusive double-sided A2 poster with one side depicting Link in battle, and on the other side, dashing on his horse Epona across the vastness of the Hyrule countryside as he sets out on his epic quest. Preorder copies will also receive a special gold sleeve as part of the game packaging.”

  • Hey Listen!!!

    Nice effect that they've added on Gerudo Valley{:

  • CEObrainz

    Gerudo valley looks so awesome right now! Plus I want to pre-order OoT3D not because of the extra free stuff (so cool btw), but because it's a game that needs to be pre-ordered before I even get the console, lol.

  • I think they're just trying to tantalize the US at this point…

  • steffex

    does this mean when you preorder on that you will receive this too? cuz then im in luck =D

    • TectonicImprov

      Can you order from amazon uk and get it in the US?

    • Replied

      there is a website called GAME and it ships from europe to the world.

  • DarkOwl

    I want that top shot in high-res as my desktop wallpaper 😀

  • Tash

    im disapointed in the pre order goodies…. im a big fan of the game, and i was very willing to spend a lot of money if that accuired me some interesting little goodies, but never mind ……

  • zman friman

    the preorder bonuses are lame.. my thought was that they were going to give away mini OFFICIAL Ocarina's or something worth our ever-ending years of being a fan.. just dissappointed. I guess anything is ok at this point..

  • Becky

    The extras are so disappointing that I would rather get it £10 cheaper from play or amazon so thats what Ive done

  • PhantomVII

    Holy crap, that is Gerudo Valley, and it looks INCREDIBLE!!! 😀

  • Darktoonlink88

    I'm definitely going to pre-order it now, but like the source already said, this bonus is for all of Europe, not just the UK.

    It's a shame – I don't think Amazon pre-orderers get the stuff, and I pre-ordered it back in late March. Still, the game's the bit I pre-ordered for, not the poster and gold box.

  • Aimee are giving a Zelda themed 3DS case with preorders. It has that awesome promotional art on it! I don't like GAME's preorder bonus much, it just has the American cover and I happen to prefer the EU one anyway. An A2 poster just isn't big enough and will probably come folded up anyway.
