If you're alarmed by the futuristic technology employed by the Nintendo 3DS
, you might just need something familiar to anchor you in this brave new world. How about The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D
, a new 3DS tech demo based on the classic N64 adventure? Beyond a rather glib video of the game's iconic title screen, which we just saw on a 3DS at a Nintendo E3 roundtable event, we haven't learned any further details yet. Update:
During the event, Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma made its status as a game explicit when he discussed simplifying its menu system on the 3DS, in order to (among other things) make the Water Temple easier by allowing Link to add and remove the Iron Boots more quickly.
While we wait to learn more, why don't you take a step into this cognitive mindfield: Since Ocarina of Time
has a strong element of time travel, wouldn't this be a 4D
