GAME: Zelda Majora’s Mask Listing Was Fabricated

Posted by Damien McFerran

Bring on the disappointment

Yesterday, we reported that GAME had listed The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask on its site, before hastily removing it moments later.

The story triggered mixed reactions - some readers were happy about the news, while others bemoaned Nintendo's insistence on recycling past classics rather than creating new ones.

However, such emotions are rather academic now, as GAME has gotten in touch to confirm that the alleged screen-grab of the listing is a fake.

A spokesperson for GAME told us:

I can confirm that the listings for a 3DS version of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask on the GAME and Gamestation websites were fabricated images. We’d also be very excited if they were making this game but I’m afraid we have no news for our customers at present.

that was predictable, but can also be a lie like a politician. Well this hurts no one.

I think we all know, secretly, that this is going to happen - it's just a matter of time. Perhaps Nintendo will release it 6 months before the first proper 3DS Zelda game...

Yeah! Apparently it was some guy on the Official Nintendo Magazine Forums that made the fake image in Powerpoint! Shame though...

I still think this remake will happen some day. It's not like Nintendo themselves will have to go through all the trouble of making it; they can just give the project over to another studio like Grezzo. While they make that, Nintendo can focus on a new Zelda game.

This rumor is predictable, especially the way game retailers speculate new games like I remember GameStop having Donkey Kong 3D in their catalogue. You have to be cautious with such things.

Unfortunate. I'd love a new Zelda game before a Majora's Mask remake, but with the lack of announcements for the West recently - this would have pleased me a lot. With Animal Crossing and Luigi's Mansion coming out next year, I'd have loved this to be a surprise October 31st release. >.<

On the OMN forums the guy who made the fake image pretty much said "I made this in 30 minutes on Power point and you are all idiots for believing that LOL." Talk about rude

I wanna play Majora's Mask someday, but we need an original Zelda game on 3ds, not another n64 remake :P

That is good. I want a original one for 3ds now. Ports are not needed to help sales now.

@NinRyan No. He looks to much like my first puppy when I got him. He made that face when we had pizza and didn't let him lick the cheese off the box.

Why is it everytime I hear about GAME it's always bad news? Someone leaked a release date? GAME. Guess who's not selling that upcoming game you want? GAME.

Now, we don't have any GAME stores here in America, but is GAME really as bad as it sounds?

Thank God! I would hate to see another outdated remake game on this gen system. Ocarina of time was looking bad as it was painful to play. Hated starting game from the same point every time even after saving game miles away from that damn tree. I 'd much rather see something new with todays graphics and gameplay...

I'm glad this was false. I was looking forward to a Zelda game that was built with the 3ds in mind anyway. It would be awesome if it came out this holiday season (even though it's highly unlikely)

Although, I do love me a good, wide-spread hoax... Banksy-style. This one could've ridden out a little longer.

I think Nintendo could make a majoras mask remake cause in ocarina of time 3d,they had characters with the 3ds graphic like,sakon,the banker,jim and the other little dudes,some workers and the boss,skullkid without majoras mask,malon,adult malon,i think malon was in the game.Mr.ingo and his 2 brothers,zelda [ for 1 part only ],gorons, the guy who buys poes,gerudo,kotake and konume.They have some items and mask with the 3ds graphics.I guess i will understand nintendo if they won't make the remake but this puppy needs this more than anyone.Don't fail this puppy nintendo.

Yeah...I'd be surprised if they didn't come out with a Majoras Mask for the 3DS.
The game was rated game of the decade and sold 3 million copies. Also, the hype for this game that's not even announced is far too great to be unnoticed. If the Ocarina remake sold millions of copies and got perfect reviews almost all around the board, then they'd be silly NOT to make another.
