Nintendo remakes old Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time trailer

Cast your mind back to 1998, and there were adverts for the upcoming The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for the Nintendo 64. There was one advert in particular that proved quite popular, if for one line at the end:

Great advert, and the music used in it would go on to be used for trailers for future Zelda games.

Flash forward to nowadays, with Ocarina of Time being remade on the 3DS portable system. During E3 2011 we got another trailer for the remake, and this one is quite good:

Look familiar? It should. It’s a shot-for-shot remake of the old advert. The old game is looking mighty good, even if that’s 2D footage from a 3D game. What’s more, it’s the same advert, with the same subtitles scattered throughout, ending with that classic last line.

Way to go, Nintendo.
