    An Epic Challenge Awaits!

    Originally released for the Nintendo 64, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was honored as the 1999 Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences "Game of the Year" and also named "Game of the Century" by Next Generation magazine. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Master Quest is a special version of Ocarina of Time that wasn't released for N64 in North America. Both games were exclusively available for Nintendo GameCube to those who preordered The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker at a participating retailer.

    Features

    • The most challenging Zelda game ever! The dungeons in Master Quest have been completely redesigned to be more puzzling than ever before.
    • Encounter new surprises while replaying a classic -- key items have been relocated to dramatically increase the difficulty level.
    • Experience a truly epic quest as you travel through time, battle monstrous bosses and interact with a cast of unforgettable characters.
    • Two games on one disc! Both The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Master Quest are on the same game disc.

    The Master Quest version of Ocarina of Time contains the same overall storyline as the original Ocarina of Time adventure. However, the dungeons have been upgraded to be truly challenging, even to a Zelda master.

    Bottom Line

    If you are one of the fortunate few who owns a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Master Quest, consider yourself lucky. This limited-edition game is sure to become a collector's item!

    The Rebirth of a Legend...
    and a True Hero's Challenge


    The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, considered by many to be the best adventure ever created, arrives on the Nintendo GameCube, faithfully reproduced and displayed in high resolution. As a special bonus, this disc also contains the never-before-released Master Quest, a second journey through Ocarina of Time with newly laid-out -- and incredibly challenging -- dungeons. Only true heroes will make it through this quest alive...

    Guided by a mysterious ocarina, Link will have to travel through time as he fights evil in different stages of his life.

    As Link becomes immersed in a story for the ages, he'll explore a vast world filled with fascinating characters and dangerous creatures.

    Battle your way through the original adventure -- one of the greatest games of all time -- or take the epic challenge of the remixed Master Quest.
