Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3DS Remake Announced

During today’s Nintendo Direct, company president Satoru Iwata announced the long-anticipated 3DS remake of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. The game will be heading to the handheld sometime in 2015. 

Iwata had this to say about the game’s atmosphere: “This dark departure from the Zelda formula must have left some intense and scary memories in player’s minds,” he said. “As we worked on the remade version, we set out to maintain the original level of challenge while keeping the game accessible for anyone.”

Nintendo release a brief trailer discussing the game’s newly enhanced visuals and narrative moments but, the company did not go into specific details about any new features for the remake.

Majora’s Mask was released back in 2000 on Nintendo 64 and was the first game in the series to be directed by Zelda Series Producer Eiji Aonuma. Rumors and consumer demand for this remake first began all the way back to 2011, when the 3DS remake of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was released.
