As you may have seen in our post confirming a 13th February release date for the New Nintendo 3DS, it's been announced that The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D will launch on the same day.

As highlighted in that previous article, there's a special New Nintendo 3DS XL hardware bundle that will be available with a copy of the game. Beyond that, however, it's a title that - among a group of major upcoming 3DS games - utilises the New model the least. The Nintendo Direct in North America highlighted a more solid 3D effect courtesy of the system's stable 3D, while you will be able to use the c-stick for full 360 degree camera control. [Update: in addition, the European broadcast showed off a Majora's Mask cover plate set for the small New 3DS in the region]

Aside from that we look set for the same experience on all models, which is unsurprising considering the fact that The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D already laid the groundwork in 2011.

As a bonus for US gamers, meanwhile, pre-orders of Code Name S.T.E.A.M from participating retailers in the country will come with a silver Majora's Mask pin.

Are you planning to pick this up on 13th February? We'd recommend watching the video from the Japanese Nintendo Direct below, with extensive footage.
