But knowing that it’s revered as a cult classic in the PC scene and that this 3D port is seemingly even better, Cave Story 3D could end up being this years Nintendo 3DS’s GOTY.

It’s time for Zelda: Skyward Sword to take the crown from Ocarina of Time

For 12 long years I’ve revered Zelda: Ocarina of Time. A flawless game, something that made you appreciate the medium as a whole, so full of little details which together brought (almost) perfection.

I’ve spent many hours thinking what was what made Ocarina of Time. I could never nail it down, but I always came to the same conclusion: it was the experience as a whole, everything coming together in a way that was almost magical.

The Oficial Nintendo Magazine (ONM) awarded an incredible 98% to the new Zelda aventure, Skyward, saying that “it’s the best Zelda ever made”.

This is quite amazing taking into account that the Zelda series is famous for its quality…. could Skyward Sword finally surpass the legendary Ocarina of Time? Seems so!

The new motion controls, beautiful graphics and engaging story have definitely impressed the ONM reviewers.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword comes out on the 18th of November in Europe and on the 20th of November in the US.
