The Nintendo 3DS remake of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time does more than just give the Nintendo 64 original a visual makeover and bring it into magical stereoscopic 3D. It has (at least) three potentially exciting new features.


As shown in the video above, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D has a new "Super Guide" style hint system, offering the player a chance to see visions of the future—"Hint Movies"—should they find themselves stumped. Ideal for those of us who might not have played Ocarina of Time for a decade or more.

This new video also shows the ease of Link's touchscreen inventory control, an innovation that should dull the pain of the game's infamous Water Temple. Marvel at the speed at which Iron Boots are equipped and unequipped and equipped again.


Finally, there's the Boss Challenge, for players who like to sprint through their boss fights. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D comes to Nintendo 3DS on June 17 in Europe, June 19 in North America.
