Star Fox 64 3D Dated, More on Ocarina of Time 3D
Nintendo will be churning out the stereoscopic 3D remakes this summer at a steady rate. In addition to the June 19 release of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, another Nintendo 64 classic will be getting a 3DS revival following E3. Star Fox 64 3D is set for July 14, one month after the release of Ocarina of Time 3D. News of the launch came courtesy of Nintendo's official page for the game.
Granted this is the Japanese page, but it's still exciting to know that the Arwing will be airborne once again this summer. Even though most Nintendo fans have already played Star Fox 64, there's no denying the game's fun factor. I've gone back to it several times (thanks, Virtual Console) over the past couple of years, and the gameplay still holds up incredibly well. It is unknown what extra features, if any, Nintendo will include in Star Fox 64 3D. They did add the Master Quest version of Ocarina of Time to the 3DS remake, so it would be fitting to give some extra content to Star Fox 64 3D, as well.
In related news, Nintendo officially opened the teaser site for Ocarina of Time 3D. Though there's not much there, the opening theme from the game provides a much-needed dose of nostalgia. It's crazy how that song can still manage to give me chills to this very day. Be sure to mess around with the site's 3D image, which is both cool and just plain nice to look at.
It should be noted that despite being one of Nintendo's biggest properties, Ocarina of Time 3D was developed by a third-party company called Grezzo. Headed by Koichi Ishii of Mana fame, Grezzo was in charge of the game during its development process. This is especially interesting given the fact that Ocarina of Time 3D is a port. In any case, it looks like Grezzo did a fine job, and Nintendo fans are sure to look forward to its launch as well as that of Star Fox 64 3D one month later.
