The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D Ocarina Edition

Nintendo along with co-developer Grezzo have bought The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time back to life with an updated version The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D.

With the launch of Zelda on Nintendo’s latest handheld console, some countries were privileged to receive a special edition. Australia received a beautifully presented package to commemorate Zelda’s revival: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D Ocarina Edition.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D Ocarina Edition
is an Australian exclusive, available exclusively through EB Games. Only available as a pre-order, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D Ocarina Edition comes with a copy of the game, a real working Ocarina instrument along with a song card with melodies from Zelda.

Oddly, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D Ocarina Edition doesn’t come factory sealed in plastic. Even the actual game itself is not sealed, despite being an Australian port.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D 3DS game comes with a special gold foil cover slip. Forgoing a standard manual, the game instead comes with a fold-out colour printed manual loaded with information to get players on their way. Also included is a Club Nintendo Registration card for redeeming Club Nintendo points in Australia.

In addition to the usual benefits, Club Nintendo Australia are also offering those that register their copy of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D before July 31st 2011 the chance to to receive an exclusive The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D Soundtrack CD.

The highlight of the The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D Ocarina Edition is none other than the STL Tri-Force Branded Ocarina. Surprisingly high quality, the ocarina is blue in colour with Tri-Force logo, manufactured by leading ocarina makers STL. Measuring at 16.5cm and made of solid plastic, this replica ocarina is a 12 hole C Major instrument, complete with neck strap so you can practice while out and about.

Also included is a double-sided song sheet with two Zelda tunes to get budding musicians underway. Songs included are ‘Zelda’s Lullaby’ and ‘Epona’s Song’, with more Zelda melodies including classics ‘Song of Time’ and ‘Requiem of Spirit’ available here.

An absolute gem for Zelda fans and collectors that will only rise in value with the years. Currently available but still technically not out until June 30th 2011, Australians still have a chance to get a hold of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D Ocarina Edition and be the envy of the rest of the world.
