Zelda: Ocarina of Time / Master Quest [GameCube – Unused Stuff]

Zelda: Ocarina of Time / Master Quest [GameCube – Unused Stuff]

Ocarina of Time was re-released for the Nintendo GameCube as an emulated ROM, as a combo with The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Master Quest and as a part of The Legend of Zelda: Collector’s Edition. Including in the disc there were some videos of upcoming games. Some unused images and sounds from the “Gamecube Preview Disc” demos can be found in the disc: it’s possible that they used the same “template” that was used in the demo disc to create this collection.

According to Jimmy130, the Japanese version have 12 Cinematics, but Nintendo didn’t used the rest.

Some miscellaneous banner files were found in game files, Nintendo was might planing that each game, Master Quest or Normal, would have a Save file:


Nintendo 64 Icon:

You possibly noticed the Purple Banner right? There is one unused image in the game that is written: “Zelda Ocarina of Time: X”. We are not sure if Nintendo was planing to do an extra mode, or this was a prototype name of Master Quest:

The Same music of the Demo Disc is still found in the game files:

After viewing so much unused sprites and musics, I will show to two of the Gamecube Preview Discs, you may hear sounds from Ocarina of Time Master Quest, see most of unused sprites (including some I didn’t show here, such as different A and B button):

    It’s weird seeing these demo disks and such. Also, in the lines of the zelda collector pack, does anyone else remember it having A Link to the Past? Our copy had it on the menu but it always opened to a black screen, then the game would crash.
