    looks like there is a copy of TLoZ:OoT and something called Ura Zelda on a bonus GC disc that is given at time of preorder. This is the same thing they did for the Japanese release.

    It looks like this might be a good sign for retro gamers. If it is possible to rewrite the code for Ocarina to work on GC, any other N64 game could be. Due to the fact they are releasing this as a free incentive, the price of rewriting the code is small. We may see more of these ports in the future

    Zelda GC may be worth getting though for OoT; I don't have it for my N64 any more (that was back in England), so I might as well get an updated Gamecube version.

    I heard there were two Zelda games in the works however, this one and a more serious "Ocarina of Time"-looking Zelda. That's the lightest of rumors though.

    Ok, here's the scoop. Ura Zelda (translation: another Zelda) was designed for the N64DD add-on (DD stands for Disk Drive), which eventually turned to vaporware. It was originally thought to be a sequel, but in '99 Ura Zelda was confirmed to be a seperate project from the sequel, named Zelda Gaiden, which eventually was released as TLoZ:MM.

    Ura Zelda was a higher quality version of OoT designed to show off the added quality of DD. It is rumored that some items are in different places and rooms may be slightly different.

    Both versions are included on the disc and have been translated to English

    cel shading is ok, unless the lines are thick. I don't mind a 2-pixel black line around my graphics, but when the line is thicker than the pseudo-sprite, it is too much

    No lame cartoon graphics. They could have been drawn FAR better if they wanted a cartoon look.

    This is well drawn Zelda:

    But they are not drawn, it´s cell-shaded 3D. Of coarse that could´ve been done better, but anything with cell-shading is cool.

    Sorry, but no. Cel-Shading can seriously screw games over. Metroid Prime Cel-shaded would equal CRAP! Ooooo, I know, cel-shaded quake, SB, WC3!!! Oh goody, how about cel-shaded Doom III?

    Apparently the cell-shading is (surprisingly enough) supposed to make the game look better. I don't know how, but the reviewer said you'd have to see it to behold it's glory.

    Maybe if Doom III was cell-shaded it would've encouraged them to make the game even slightly interesting instead of just making bling-bling graphics to accompany garbage gameplay.
