Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3DS bundle on sale in two weeks

Check out The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time-styled 3DS that'll go on sale at the end of the month. Retro gaming fans, this way.

Now this is a treat for Zelda fans: Nintendo is bringing out a 3DS console featuring a Zelda-inspired design. Even better, it'll come with a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. Result.

The bundle is to celebrate the Zelda series' 25th anniversary, reports The Verge.

The outside of the black 3DS is embossed with a gold symbol of Hyrule (the main setting of the series), with other decorative effects around the border. Inside there are additional gold accents on the Power icon and 3D slider.

Even the game is a special edition. It comes in a double sleeve, with the front being the standard design, and the back a gold version.

The game has been on sale in its standard format since June.

The bundle will hit shops on 25 November -- that's two weeks on Friday. There's no price as yet, but we'll bring you more as we hear it. There aren't really any more details about the bundle -- the box says Limited Edition, but it's not clear how many it's limited to. Expect them to go quickly though, as this'll be a real collectors' item.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D is a remake of the original N64 classic from 1998. It was initially a demo to show off the 3DS, but was put into production as a full game. The N64 version was a classic -- ask anyone who played it and watch them be overcome with a warm nostalgic glow.

The bundle has only been announced for Europe so far, so it's good news for us Brits for once . Hurrah.
