The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D has managed to prove popular with gamers despite being thirteen years old. Chart data from the British GfK Chart-Track states that 20% of the 3DS' userbase now owns the game. 

"We generally find that summer time is a good time for handheld gaming and we have lots of sampling and summertime events to get more people hands on with it -- that leads us nicely up to all that great content coming out," said Nintendo UK boss David Yarnton.

After a post-launch drought, 3DS owners have Kid Icarus: Uprising, StarFox 64 3D, Mario Kart 3D, Super Mario and Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D to look forward to this year.

I will own them all.
