When The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was released in 1998, the graphics were pretty amazing. Now that we’re in 2011, they pale in comparison to the majority of modern games. However Nintendo has done a great job in updating the classic Ocarina of Time for its new 3DS console, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D.

Nintendo also changed up the dungeons mimicking the ones from Master Quest – fans who pre-ordered The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker might have received a copy of Ocarina of Time with the Master Quest on one GameCube disc back in 2003. Basically, the levels are redone with more complex puzzles. No new items, weapons or dungeons are being introduced though.

IGN has discovered that there will be a new boss mode included. This mode allows the player to go back and re-tackle the terrorizing creatures that watch over a dungeon – something that isn’t included in previous games. Well, not officially at least as The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks let you take on previously defeated bosses in some manner.

Want more pretty screen shots? Kotaku has a couple of comparison images showing the original 1998 game with the 2011 release.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D will be available for sale on June 19th, 2011.
