Small First Shipment Expected for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D…

Rumours Nintendo News Adventure 3DS

With the limited quantities we seen for the two Ocarina of Time ports on the Gamecube this bit of news should not really come off a surprise, but it does certainly urge those to think ahead if they are planning on buying the heavily anticipated Ocarina of Time remake on the 3DS. A Japanese retail blog by the name of Sinobi has reported that Nintendo are planning a rather small first shipment of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, so it might be a good idea to go ahead and pre-order just to be safe in actually obtaining a copy.

Since this is just a retail blog, I would say this bit of news should be treated as a rumor, but it does make a bit of sense if you think about it. Both Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks had quite a large first print, and all that seemed to do was eventually devalue the game over time as there is no problem right now of finding either for under $20.00. Nintendo really want to make this release special though and with that I can see this release easily to be treated much like past limited releases we have seen before such as the recently released Mario 25th Anniversary Collection. I will say I do not see less than a million being a starting number as this game will sell either way as it is still a Zelda game. All we can do now really is wait and see on just how readily available Ocarina 3D will end up being, but if you live near a place that can pre-order the title it would be a smart idea to throw down the minimum just in case.
