During the Nintendo 3DS’s first year at retail, Nintendo released quite a few titles for it; unfortunately, many of these titles were ports of previous games, such as Starfox 64 3D and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. However, Nintendo had an ace up its sleeve the whole time: Super Mario 3D Land, a brand new game featuring Nintendo’s most beloved mascot, Mario.

In the 80s and 90s, Sonic the Hedgehog, like much Mario, was a household name. Sonic has starred in over 20 games to date, ranging as far back as the Sega Genesis to current systems such as the Xbox 360. Sonic Generations, released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, is a celebration of the many years of Sonic the Hedgehog games. Sonic Generations features the 2D styled Sonic the Hedgehog, star of the classic Sega Genesis series of Sonic games, meeting his 3D counterpart, star of the Dreamcast to current generation Sonic games, for the first time.

In 1998, The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time was a turning point for the Nintendo 64. Released early in the system’s life, it was an instant hit for both the Nintendo 64 and fans. Now, thirteen years later, Ocarina of Time returns in a way nobody expected it to: in portable form. The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time 3D, released exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS, takes the Nintendo 64 version and faithfully recreates it on the 3DS; every location, side quest and story element is exactly as you remember them. However, there have been a few changes made in Ocarina of Time 3D that will prompt even a series veteran to give the game another playthrough.
