It may be hard to believe, but The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time will be celebrating its 20-year anniversary in a few short days. Released on November 21st, 1998, this Nintendo 64 epic not only ushered the Zelda series into the modern 3D landscape, and it not only set the stage for future games of the franchise to find success, but it helped shape the game industry during a pivotal time in history and effectively capitalized on the endless potential of the entire medium.
Ocarina of Time is a super special game, for fans and gamers of all walks of life. That’s why Zelda Dungeon will be celebrating the saga of the Hero of Time with Ocarina of Time Week! Join us for the next seven days, as we explore the life and legacy of Ocarina of Time, one of the greatest and most important video games of all time.
