About The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
The Nintendo 64’s The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is considered one of the most impactful and popular video games ever released. The game was an instant success, with over 500,000 pre orders being placed in the United States alone in advance of the game’s release. In less than a week after release, the game had sold over 1 million copies – by the end of 1998 it was the best-selling game in the US, outearning several Hollywood movies released that same year. Ocarina of Time would go on to win several Game of the Year awards and has been re-released several times across multiple Nintendo consoles. With storytelling and character growth still as engaging as it was on its initial release, Ocarina of Time rightfully has its place among the best Zelda games of all time.
Collectors of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time are in for a treat as Nintendo released both a “Collector’s Edition” and “Standard Edition” of this popular title. The collector’s edition features an embossed foil box cover while the standard edition has a traditional cardboard box front. The debate over which copy is better is ongoing, with the consensus generally being that the standard edition is harder to find in ultra high grades, while the collector’s edition version generally displays better. Most advanced Zelda collectors simply prefer owning both key variants of this seminal title!
