Europe continues to receive it free in every copy of The Wind Waker, except for the discounted Player's Choice version.

In addition, both this game (unchanged except for being converted into a downloadable format) and an exclusive "loosely based" sequel (which used the same game engine) called BS The Legend of Zelda: Ancient Stone Tablets were released on the Satellaview in Japan.

On April 17, 2013, a sequel to A Link To The Past was announced for the Nintendo 3DS.

Though relatively simple by today's standards, it was quite advanced for its time.

Innovations include the ability to use dozens of different items, a vast world full of secrets to explore, and the cartridge's ability to save progress via battery-backed memory.

Innovations include the use of lock-on targeting, a new gameplay mechanic that focuses the camera on a nearby target and alters the player's actions to be relative to that target.

Such mechanics allow precision-based swordfighting in a 3D space and were a revolutionary development for the time.

Ocarina of Time was included as part of Collector's Edition for the Game Cube in 2003.

The game was remade in 2011 as Ocarina of Time 3D on the Nintendo 3DS, which added improved graphics, 3D effects, Boss Challenge mode and included the Master Quest.

Some of the games feature additional protagonists such as Navi the fairy, Ezlo the Minish Cap, or Midna the Twili, who serve as sidekicks throughout the course of the game, or different antagonists, such as Vaati the Wind Mage, the General of Darkness General Onox, or the Usurper King Zant.
