The Legend of Zelda Ocarina Of Time Hums Its Tune On Wii U Virtual Console

The Legend of Zelda Ocarina Of Time is now available to download and play on the Wii U Virtual Console.

For those counting at home, this currently gives you three ways to acquire the game on modern consoles, and six overall. The game is already available on Wii Virtual Console, and also received a 3DS remake The Legend of Zelda Ocarina Of Time 3DS. Of course, the game was originally released on N64 in 1998 and received a rerelease on Gamecube under the anthology The Legend of Zelda Collector’s Edition.

Ocarina Of Time should require no introduction, but it is the first 3D game in The Legend of Zelda series, and is also one of the most critically acclaimed and bestselling games in the series.
