Nintendo to release gold Zelda cartridges

   In an effort to hype the release and boost the sales figures of their upcoming powerhouse, Zelda: The Ocarina of Time, Nintendo has announced plans to release a limited supply of the game in a gold colored cartridge instead of the normal gray.

   The move bears signifigance to many fans of the Zelda series, as it continues the tradition of gold colored Zelda cartridges established by the first two installments of the series, released on the Nintendo Entertainment System. In effect, the limited edition carts become collector's items in addition to delivering gamers Nintendo's long anticipated 64 bit adventure RPG.

   The hitch that Nintendo has built in to their tempting offer is that the gold colored carts will only be available to those who pre-order the game at retailers between October 24 and November 22. They will not be available to those who wait until November 23, the game's official release date, to arrive before purchasing the game.
