Poor old Majora’s mask, constantly sitting in the shadows of the magnificent Orcarina of Time as one the N64′s pivotal games. Thankfully, Nintendo would like to show of the game all over again in spangly 3D-o-vision.
The trouble with Major’as Mask was that it was a little miss-understood. Playing the same three days over and over until perfection seemed odd to some. But to me, the game was still a classic and it’s good to hear that Nintendo are, at least, considering a 3DS remake.
Speaking with My Nintendo News, Nintendo producer Eiji Aonuma talks about Orcarina 3Ds and Majora’s mask remake
“It’s been 13 years since Ocarina of Time was originally released, and one of the big things that we made this remake possible was that there was an outpour of emotions from people who said they would like to see this game done,”
“We said we could do it in 3D, so we did. I think certainly if there was a similar output of emotion and clamor from fans for a remake of Majora’s Mask, it wouldn’t be an utter impossibility.
“Thinking on it now, having a handheld Majora’s Mask where you could kind of just set things down on your own time – close it, set it aside and come back to it later – might be a game play element some fans will actually take to and might really appreciate. Especially considering how you really had to rush through the original game, in a sense.”
