Ocarina of Time brought the Zelda franchise into the 3D world and allowed us to interact with characters on a more meaningful level. We had interacted with characters in prior games, but we were never able to see their true facial expressions. One of the first people we talk to in Ocarina of Time is Saria, as she is standing outside Link’s House when the game begins. After defeating Gohma inside the Deku Tree, we make our way out to Hyrule Field, but we are first stopped by Saria again. It is a quick cut scene in which she says that her and Link will always be friends and she gives him her Ocarina. Even though it was short, it is still a cut scene that sticks with me to this day.
YouTuber MajorLink decided to expand on that cut scene in his newest animation. While it is pretty similar to the original, we do get more facial expression from Link, which really helps us to understand how he truly feels about Saria. In the game, we just see him run off and we never really understand how he felt about Saria. Do you like the animation better or do you still prefer the original? Let us know your thoughts down in the comments!
