The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time / Master Quest, also known as The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (Bonus Disc), is a compilation released for the Nintendo GameCube.[name references needed]

Overview

The game selection screen

The compilation was first made available in limited quantities as a pre-order bonus for The Wind Waker.[citation needed] Additionally, it was sold bundled with The Wind Waker in some regions.[clarification needed] It contains the complete original Ocarina of Time plus the never-before-released Master Quest, which features rearranged and more difficult Dungeons, on a single GameCube disc.

Dungeons in Master Quest have similar layouts to the original game, but the order of progression through their chambers has been changed. Tougher Enemies are encountered earlier, and puzzles place a greater emphasis on time-limited Switches, manipulating Time Blocks, and collecting Jewels of White.

Both games are emulations, rather than ports to the GameCube, though they are displayed at increased resolution of 640×480 compared to the 320×240 resolution on the Nintendo 64 and support Progressive scan. Their ROMs are based on Ocarina of Time version 1.2, but with some modifications, mainly to suit the change in platform; the colors of controller buttons are changed to match those of the GameCube controller, and mentions of "Z-Targeting" are changed to "L-Targeting". In addition, the Crest of the Gerudo, as depicted on Time Blocks, Switches, and the Mirror Shield, is changed to the newer design introduced in Majora's Mask, as its original design closely resembled the Star and crescent commonly associated with the Islamic faith.

Additional Content

The disc also includes preview trailers for then-upcoming games for the Nintendo GameCube and Game Boy Advance. The selection of trailers differ by region, with Japan having more trailers from different companies and promoting the "Capcom Five". The A Link to the Past & Four Swords trailer also differs, with the Japanese trailer having narration and focusing more on Four Swords. Some regions also include "Hot Clips", a montage of footage from various games.

Nomenclature

The title of this compilation is somewhat ambiguous, as no exact title is shown on its box art, game disc, manual, or in-game menu. The box art of the North American, European, and Australian releases simply show the two game logos along with the text "Two-Game Bonus Disc!" and "Never Before Released!".

The Japanese version's box art displays the games' titles as ゼルダの伝説 時のオカリナGC (The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time GC) and ゼルダの伝説 時のオカリナGC裏 (The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time GC Flip-Side), with "GC" presumably standing for GameCube; these titles are also used on the game-selection screen, but the "GC" is absent from each game's individual title screen.

The Korean version's box art is based on the Japanese version, but uses the English game logos. Additional text on the box reads 시간의 오카리나「another」버젼 (Ocarina of Time "Another" Version). In-game, the Korean version is entirely in English.

The titles shown below are taken from the software's internal name, which is shown in the GameCube's Memory Card manager. In addition, the Australian version bears the title The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (Bonus Disc) as its internal name. All versions also contain the name Zelda Ocarina Multi Pack in their data.[citation needed]
