Planned

  • Ura Zelda
    • Ura Zelda was meant to be an expansion for Ocarina of Time which could be implemented with the Nintendo 64DD. However, the Nintendo 64DD was a commercial failure, so the expansion was reworked into Master Quest for the Nintendo GameCube.

In an effort to curb piracy in China, a Chinese-exclusive system called the iQue Player was created in 2003. The iQue functioned similarly to the Nintendo 64, but games were distributed digitally. Ocarina of Time was one of 14 games available for the system. Majora's Mask was also developed for the system, but the port was then canceled. The game's dark undertones and imagery were deemed to violate Chinese censorship laws.
