The game is an enhanced version of Ocarina of Time, originally released for the Nintendo 64. In the game, the player controls Link, as he ventures through the Hyrule Kingdom in an effort to stop the sinister Ganondorf from obtaining the ultra-powerful Triforce.

The 3DS version includes improved graphics, additional touchscreen and gyro controls for certain elements, as well as 3D effects.

The game was one of the most successful titles for the 3DS, selling well over 3 million copies. A 3D version of the other Nintendo 64 Zelda title, Majora’s Mask, was also released.
