The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask - Black Logo Feature

It’s now official that The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D is coming to Nintendo 3DS/2DS in the spring of 2015! The new trailer for the game was shown at the very start of today’s Nintendo Direct presentation. You can see the trailer and the full Nintendo Direct presentation at the bottom of this article.

The original game was a strange experience, leaving players scratching their heads and speculating for quite some time. One of its big claims to fame is that it was also surprisingly creepy for a Zelda game. Few would label it the best in the series, but it is still a cherished entry in the series for many fans of the franchise.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D is a remake of a decidedly controversial game in the Zelda series. One of its main complaints was simply that the game was far too short for a Zelda game. Personally, I think it made up for that to some degree with the mask collection side quests. It took a lot of extra play time to collect all of the masks and help out everyone in your Bomber’s Notebook. The game certainly wasn’t bad though. It was in fact one of the most unusual games in the series, and easily the creepiest one. This creepiness inspired the very well-known “BEN Drowned” (aka “Haunted Majora’s Mask“) creepypasta that revolves around the game. If you haven’t seen this creepy story, check it out here.

Inside the Clock Tower

In spite of the controversy, there has been a lot of demand for The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D ever since The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D came out. There have in fact been fan petitions on the matter, but for a long while there was no word from Nintendo about it. We only got subtle hints about the game’s existence in other games like The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, where at the start of the game, players will notice Majora’s Mask hanging on the wall in their house! You could also find the Moon as an item in Hyrule Warriors. Today’s Nintendo Direct presentation, however, finally confirmed that The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D is coming to Nintendo 3DS/2DS next spring and that Nintendo has indeed heard the fans.

That terrible moon is coming…

I for one have been hoping for this announcement for quite some time. Now that the game is finally confirmed, the question is, will you be getting it? I know I will. I hope everyone who wants to can get their copy right away when it comes out. But if you find yourself unable to get the game at launch, I guess there’d be only one thing to say to you:

“You’ve met with a terrible fate, haven’t you?”

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.

    Though I wasn’t a fan of the first one, I might be more inclined to play the portable remake. See what all the fuss is about.
