Nintendo to release Legend of Zelda-themed 3DS bundle

8 Nov 2011

Nintendo is releasing a Legend of Zelda-themed Nintendo 3DS bundle at the end of November to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the adventure game series.

This version of Nintendo’s latest handheld console is black with a gold Hyrule emblem on the surface of the device.

It also includes a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, the portable remake of the classic Nintendo 64 game. It will come in a dual-sided sleeve – one with the classic game sleeve design and the other in gold.

The 3DS version of the game brings re-mastered graphics along with 3D visuals to the classic title, which was originally released in 1998.

The Legend of Zelda 3DS console bundle will be available from 25 November. Nintendo is also releasing the next Legend of Zelda game – The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword – for the Wii, which will arrive in Europe on 18 November.
