We’ve been hearing a lot about how difficult it’s been to track down a physical copy of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. Amazon, for instance, is no longer selling copies directly, and third-parties are asking for ridiculous prices ($74 and higher).

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D’s rarity may come down to the fact that retail copies are no longer being produced. If retailer Play-Asia is to be believed, the game’s physical version has been discontinued. If true, the only way to pick up Ocarina of Time 3D at a fair price is through the digital version on the eShop.
