The latest issue of Nintendo Power magazine is still about a week away from its street date, but several of its official review scores are already out. The one we are concerned with is for Ocarina of Time 3D and it scored a 9.5 out of 10. It is worth noting that back in 1998 when the game released for the Nintendo 64, Nintendo Power magazine also gave the game a 9.5 Shown below is what Nintendo Everything had posted in regards to review in Nintendo Power magazine.

As you may have expected, the review was full of praise. The magazine made sure to point out the positive impact of the 3D visuals and the new touchscreen usage. Although Navi is apparently more of a nuisance this time around, Nintendo Power believes that the 3DS game is significant better than the N64 version.

The reviews of the game are just starting to pop up and thus far we’ve gotten three reviews for the game with scores of 93%, 93%, and now 95%. This should put to rest any concerns whatsoever if you think the game hasn’t aged well. It seems likely that the upgrades that have been to Ocarina of Time 3D are setting up the title to become the highest rated Nintendo 3DS game to date. Certainly the first must-have title for the Nintendo 3DS.

Ocarina of Time 3D is set for release on June 19th here in the United States. Until then, be sure to post your thoughts of the game by posting in the comments below.
