I’ve been getting tons of questions about URA Zelda and what it is.
okay so after OOT was released nintendo was going to release this extension called the N64DD
it looked like this
AND they made this expansion called THE LEGEND OF ZELDA OCARINA OF TIME URA
the japanese word for URA means “another”
so it was basically “another legend of zelda ocarina of time”
URA Zelda was say, an expansion for Ocarina of Time, it had different dungeons (wind temple and temple of light), extra storyline, new items and gear (such as different colored tunics for other abilities)
Since the N64DD failed and was never even released in the US, nintendo completely scrapped URA Zelda.
Since people demanded that Ura Zelda be released, Nintendo was like,
welp, we won’t give you that.
we will give you the exact same thing but make it a little more difficult
AND THAT’S WHERE WE GOT MASTER QUEST
It can suck my wiener.
BUT, ALL HOPE IS NOT LOST. A group of fans has put together a URA Zelda (not sure if they had any hands on the original and if they’re using it, or if it’s completely original), but so far it looks great!
they will be releasing it as a patch (not a rom) and they will provide an emulator and everything!
It’s not done yet, but I wait patiently
ALSO, THE LINK I POSTED is a sneak preview at the Temple of Light
if you wanna see more videos, look up ZethN64 on youtube.
and now, excuse me while I lurk emulators for BSZelda. A remake of the original “the legend of zelda” but with “a link to the past” graphics, only to be released in japan on the Nintendo Satellaview. but that’s a whole other post. =]
