Majora’s Mask Remake For 3DS A Possibility

Recently in an interview with Nintendo Power, Zelda director Eiji Aonouma stated that if there was enough fan support behind a Majora’s Mask remake, then Nintendo would consider doing so. Here’s what transpired in the interview:

After playing Ocarina of Time 3D, the next question that comes to mind is: Will we get a Majora’s Mask remake next?

Would you like to play such a remake?

Well, Yes!

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.

Considering Ocarina‘s 3DS remake was pretty much all levels of awesome, I have absolutely no qualms with a Majora’s Mask remake. Most Zelda fans would probably kill me for it, but I would’ve opted for a Majora’s Mask remake over Ocarina.

Oh villain! I know, I know, I’m a sinner.

Really though, I found Majora’s Mask much more entertaining simply because of the “three-day” challenge… not to mention being able to become a goron or a zora is pretty awesome. (Sorry, dekus, you guys weren’t that much fun to play as.) Overall, Majora’s Mask was much more of a positive experience for me than Ocarina, although both games were classics. I might not have a 3DS right now, but if Nintendo remade Majora’s Mask, I’d be pretty willing to fork over a paycheck for it.
