Question about Ocarina of Time 3DS: is it a Video Game Remake or an Updated Re-release, or is it a bit of both? Or don't we know enough yet?

Also, re. "Made even more amazing by the fact that it's Zelda's first remake, the first 3DS remake, AND the first game to have a remake as its console debut." is this correct? (I'm guessing re-releases of Zelda games on handheld consoles, e.g. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past on Game Boy Advance, would count as updated re-releases — is that right?)

(EDIT: According to ALTTP's page the GBA version was an updated re-release.)

That statement isn't entirely correct. The GBA version of ALTTP was the franchise's GBA debut. Even if it wasn't a straight Video Game Remake due to it not being rebuilt from the ground up with a new graphics engine, the statement implies that the debut Zelda game on every system until now has been an original.

The statement's kind of poorly phrased anyway and is basically just natter, I think.

Oh, okay. Thanks for clearing that up for me.
