The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D is a Nintendo 3DS game released on June 19th, 2011 in North America. It is a 3D action/adventure game set in Hyrule, and is a remake of the original Nintendo 64 game, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. The graphics were improved and a Boss Challenge mode was added, but the story, characters, enemies, and locations are no different from the original.

Changes between The Nintendo 64 version and 3DS version


  • The Master Quest is unlocked after completing the game, previously only available on the Nintendo GameCube.
    • The included Master Quest mirrors the game and increases enemy damage. This is not present on GameCube.

  • The death counter on the file select screen has been removed.
  • The Deku Stick's damage no longer matches the Master Sword's.
  • The crouch stab no longer does the damage of the previous attack.
    • A glitch with the crouch stab called Infinite Sword Glitch was removed.
  • Glitches such as Ocarina Items and Wrong Warp were removed.
