For those of you Majora’s Mask fans who are chomping at the bit over the new 3DS remake, we have a nice present for you today. A new video, the same as the one we first reported on here, has been edited — complete with subtitles by Yong and a nifty translation by Claude Smith — showing Eiji Aonuma playing the remake for a whole 16 minutes and change. The video focuses on the Clock Town primarily, showing off the different places you can go and people you can interact with. What I found most interesting was how many things seemingly took Aonuma by surprise. Given his pedigree as director and producer of the Zelda series, I anticipated him knowing every nook and cranny of every Zelda game, but such does not seem to be the case in the video. Though I myself never owned the original Majora’s Mask, I played a bit of it and do think the remake is shaping up nicely. I especially like the new Incident Notebook that conveniently keeps track of quests and things to look into. Also convenient is how the Clock Town was streamlined a bit to make it easier to get where you need to go faster, including the new Owl Statues to help save your progress. It’s a lot to take in, but I’m sure you’ll appreciate Aonuma’s insights in the video.
