Majora’s Mask 3DS Unveiled

MajorasMask3DS-Announced

Nintendo have at last announced a Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask remake for their coveted 3DS handheld – a long-time hope of passionate Zelda fans since the inception of Ocarina of Time’s 3D iteration.

The news was delivered by way of the latest Nintendo direct:

Little was revealed about the game, such as whether it will contain any bonus content or changes as with Ocarina of Time 3D – though it is at least confirmed that Majora’s Mask 3DS is slated for a 2015 spring release.

    Nintendo literally only knows how to milk old and tired franchises. This is why I stopped being a Nintendo fanboy.

    Because nintendo is totally the only company releasing ports of their old games on newer systems. Yep.

    They're the only ones who do it so obsessively. And it's not even like this is the only nostalgia pandering they do. They LOVE nostalgia pandering. That's why they can't stop making a new Zelda every 3 years or why everything needs a Nintendo easter egg. It's also why they just can't stop referencing themselves all the time. Let's not even talk about Pokemon, which has pretty much turned into Nintendo's version of Madden.

    I like companies that change, evolve, and move on at least -sometime-. Not ones that constantly play the nostalgia card and hope I'm on board. It gets really old and comes off as lazy.

    When other people make a new sequel every few years, at least they make a new story to go with it. And they STILL get negativity about it (call of duty, assassin's creed, etc), but that's irrelevant.

    Zelda's stories are, for the most part, the same story over again with a new gimmick or two, and they get constant praise for them. How many times has you saved Zelda? Is there a world outside of Hyrule's general area? Are there other kingdoms? Other languages? Why has Link never participated in any wars? Outside of Ganon stealing Zelda every Tuesday, does Hyrule have any political problems with any other kingdoms? They never write about any of this. They know that if they generally keep Zelda about saving the princess, just like the first one, people will keep buying and giving their games high scores.

    And should I really go on about all of the things shared between each installment? There is a very very long list. Why do I need to go through temples every single game? Why do I always need to get the bombbag? the bow and arrow? the hookshot? Why is the water temple always the hardest? Why is Link never a trained warrior before he finds out he's the chosen one? What exactly is the purpose of Link being a silent protagonist?

    Why does Link always need to collect his weapons in temples?

    Why is every Zelda game set in the same time? It's always medival and kingdoms. If every Link is a reincarnation, then why not put him in a time when technology has been invented? Remember the rumor about the Zelda set in the future? Why don't they ever do anything like that?

    Why doesn't Nintendo ever take any risks? Don't you realize most of the world outside of Hyrule has barely even been explained, if at all?

    Mario has had a much more varied set of problems to deal with and he's not even supposed to be a "serious" character, like Link.

    That's the difference between Assassin's Creed sequels and Zelda sequels.

    I would not be complaining at all if it seemed like Nintendo was trying anything different, but they're really not. at all.

    Every 3 years, they release a new Zelda game with the same story as the last one (but they change 1 thing about it and give it a new gimmick), and somehow receive praise for it.

    All I have to say to this is "PS Vita", which is basically a handheld which ports all it's console games.

    If they only games you've been paying attention to are those that instill nostalgia, you need to take a look at your own gaming priorities.

    You're shitting me right, a new Zelda game every 3 years is "pandering"? What about yearly Assassin's Creed or Call of Duty or sports title entries? That nonsense goes beyond pandering to flat out milking.

    No, I won't, because it's obvious you're just angry because you're a Nintendo fanboy who can't keep his emotions in check. I just don't care about what you have to say, sry. :^)

    Yes, because the new IPs Project STEAM and Splatoon totally don't exist, right?

    Stop ignoring things to justify your hatred. If you don't like Nintendo, that's fine - it's your right. Just don't use a lie as the reason.

    Yeah, fucking Nintendo! I mean, a Majora's Mask remake for 3DS is what fans asked for since the reveal of Ocarina of Time 3D, and now Nintendo just gives them what they want! What a bunch of assholes these people at Nintendo are! And I bet they don't even offer pre-order DLC depending on where you pre-ordered the game!

    If they hadn't done this, sad fucktards like you would be accusing them of not listening to their fans who were begging for it. You'd say the exact same thing: "This is why I stopped being a Nintendo fanboy."

    You never were one, what you are is a troll. Why don't you just kill yourself and do everyone a favor, lol. :)

    I don't find that too weird, it was very much its own thing, moreso than most of other Zelda titles. Ocarina of Time made this big environment you could frolic around at your own pace and have a grand adventure, Majora's Mask was more claustrophobic and brooding, and you were always in a hurry to stop something seemingly inevitable.
    I appreciated how it was tonally totally different from its predecessors and for that it's one of my favourite Zelda games, but that type of "stressful" game is surely going to turn many people away.

    It's my favorite Zelda ever. Also, you can just explore around at your own pace (it's kind of required to achieve 100% completion like I did).

    It's just that you have to decide if you want to spend the next hour exploring or progressing. Once you decide you are not going to be saving the world today you can spend the next hour chasing cuckos at the ranch all day long.

    Many people did not like the time limit. There was a lot of ways around it that the game provided, like slowing down the time itself or some items could not be taken away by time, but you always had to repeat the same 3 days.

    Ya it kinda sucked, having a time limit on every dungeon...I had to repeat the water one a lot x.x

    that's cause you freaking suck.

    time limit is not a problem if you go back to the First day, slow down time THEN you play and finish the dungeon(s).

    Everything is very doable in Majora's mask, and the dungeons were simple, i recently played the game a couple months ago and everything was a breeze

    Yeah, people are fucking idiots. They can't figure out an extremely simple system like the time manipulation in MM, then go on to blame the game for their own stupidity.

    Yea and I'm sure you've played the game a couple times in between this and your first time. I imagine the first time many people on this site played it, they may not have even been teenagers. You learn a lot as games go on you know.

    I played it as a child and while it was harder than ocarina, I really enjoyed the world. The npc world is still one of the most unique Ive seen in a game. The 3 day schedule really let the game explore some interesting mechanics.

    I was bored during a weekend 4 years ago, so i played this game with 1080P resolution and +300fps...

    And when you did, it looked fugly because the models were never designed to be stretched out over a 1080p LCD, they were made for an old CRT TV. You're just a retard who thinks 1080p is better just because the number is higher.

    Also you didn't play it at 300 fps lol, you liar. Emulators don't do that. Well unless you fast-forward the game 10x...

    Nice, hopefully they change lots of stuff. I don't exactly need the same game all over again, but it's nice for people that missed out on the N64 nevertheless.

    With how far technology has come I wonder why no one else has played with the idea that the NPC had a daily life with timed events that only happened at that time and are different each day.

    the n64 ruined the legend of zelda series (and mario too) and hasnt been any good since other than on portables until now.

    thanks nintendo for giving this nintendo fanboy since the 1980's even less reason to waste money on your products.

    mario64 was shit?

    What the hell are you smoking? That game busted the doors wide open as it pertained to roaming around in a 3d world and it did it WONDERFULLY.

    Or is a 3 dimensional fictional world too much for your thumb to handle?
