Put on your rose-colored glasses for the first 3D Dot Game Heroes trailer

From Software's homage to classic 8-bit gaming in upcoming Japanese release 3D Dot Game Heroes has been expressed in the first trailer. Sure, it absolutely reeks of the original Legend of Zelda, but in an updated, tongue-in-cheek kinda way. It certainly doesn't hurt that, visually speaking, it's stunning from beginning to end.

We've got screenshots and the gorgeous video above, but only a Japanese release date so far -- how about some love for the rest of the world, eh?
