One of the biggest games to be heading to the European Wii U virtual console this week is without a doubt The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time. This release was announced last week for Europe with it being anyone's guess when the North American release would happen, however a listing on the Nintendo website changes things and confirms that Ocarina of Time will be arriving sooner rather than later, with the release of the game on the eShop set for tomorrow. The North American release of the game on the virtual console will be available for $9.99, and in case you have been living under a rock for the last seventeen years here is an overview of The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time:
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time – one of the most critically acclaimed games ever made –returns on the Nintendo eShop for Wii U. Set off on a legendary journey to stop Ganondorf, who has plunged Hyrule into darkness. Travel through time as child and adult Link and experience Hyrule in peace and war to save the world and protect the Triforce.
Your quest takes you through dense forests and across wind-whipped deserts. Swim raging rivers, climb treacherous mountains, dash on horseback across rolling hills, and delve into dungeons full of creatures that fight to the finish to put an end to your adventures. As Link, you’ll also travel through time to solve puzzles, save friends, and right Ganondorf’s wrongs with the help from your trusty Ocarina of Time and the mysterious youth, Sheik. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is one of Nintendo’s most epic challenges ever and one of its most touching stories, and is an absolute must-play for Nintendo fans.
