This is a response to my previous video of Young Link defeating Ganon in the 3DS version of Ocarina of Time.

BIG note: I didn't discover this, I decided to upload this because it's the first direct feed video on youtube showing this big breakthrough. Shoutouts to Thewayfaringfox and others at ZSR for cracking this major exploit.

Now here is a video with text annotations showing how it is done.
There are 2 methods, but I am only showing the first and easier to follow method at the moment. This is the 'Without Nocturne of Shadow method'.

You'll need to do or to get:
Zelda Lullaby + Fairy Ocarina to obtain:
Magic and Farore's Wind

Zelda's Letter (Young Link's trading item) for:
Using Farore's Wind inside the Kokiri Shop via Use Restricted Items Anywhere glitch.

Bombs for
Opening up the Dead Giant Dodongo's Door, do this so you can navigate the Back in Time version much faster, dying while falling into a grotto near the Goron City passage warp.

Know how the triple slash glitch works:
To bypass King Zora so you can get Farore's Wind without getting both the silver scale and message in a bottle.


The other method is using the Nocturne of Shadow and it's much shorter but the time it takes to obtain these items is much longer in my opinion. During the 'Back in Time' Laboratory room, if you play the Nocturne of Shadow, you'll warp to the last section of the Tower Escape in Ganondorf's Castle.

Nocturne of Shadow is obtained by either clearing the first 3 adult dungeons and head to Kakariko village as Adult Link or perform a series of Reverse Bottle Adventure glitches.
