Monday is set to be a legendary day for the Wii. Nintendo will update the Virtual Console with one of the greatest games ever made--The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time
. Much like its older brethren, this instant classic has been re-released several times since it originally graced store shelves back in 1998. There were at least two collector's editions released for the GameCube. At only 1000 Wii points ($10 USD) it's almost a steal for this masterpeice. For people who haven't played it, I envy you. A great adventure awaits.
