Nintendo Teases Majora's Mask Remake Again, Again
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Oh Shigeru Miyamoto, have mercy
So, a 3DS remake of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, it's coming, right? It must be, because if it doesn't a large collective of Nintendo fans will march all the way to Kyoto to protest; well, that seems likely. The classic Nintendo 64 title is beloved by many, and some believe it surpasses The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, itself considered to be one of the greatest video games ever produced.
And Nintendo knows we want it, too. We've had multiple rumours, and before every Nintendo Direct we suspect many cross their fingers in the hope it'll appear; perhaps it's all because Eiji Aonuma told us to speak up way back in 2011. Shigeru Miyamoto even stated last year that it was under consideration, alongside a Link to the Past-style game, which happens to be a thing called The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and arrives later this year. But, alas, Majora's Mask 3D eludes us.
Of course, we have a good few years of the 3DS system's lifespan to come, so it's not beyond the realms of possibility that it could happen; in theory it could arrive as a HD remake on Wii U, but a 3D remake using a similar engine to Ocarina of Time 3D seems more likely. As if to keep our fading hopes alive, Shigeru Miyamoto said the following when asked by IGN if Majora's Mask fans were to be left unsatisfied.
Well, they're still in my memory.
According to IGN, that's all he said, and that one of the world's greatest game designers "chuckled" before answering.
Oh Nintendo, you torment us so.
