- Zelda Eternity
North America has been waiting for a proper 30 second TV spot for Majora’s Mask 3D, and here it is. A bit cheesy, sure, but it’s still nice to see mainstream acknowledgement for this game, as well as all the new gameplay.
Don’t be misled by the ending which only says that it’s for New Nintendo 3DS, as this game will also work on regular 3DS and 2DS.
Be sure to pick this one up on when it comes out on February 13th, along with the New Nintendo 3DS XL, in North America.

If you were on the fence about whether the graphical upgrades were a sufficient reason to grab the upcoming 3DS remake of Majora’s Mask, this new video from IGN comparing the two versions side-by-side should put all of your doubts at ease. One look will make clear the mind-boggling extent to which the N64 classic has been enhanced.
What’s particularly surprising is that the graphical upgrades were given not only to models and textures, but also to the character animations, making them appear much more fluid and expressive than in the original.

Nintendo held a Nintendo Direct today focusing on stuff launching this spring. For those of you who missed it, here’s all the Zelda related stuff they announced.
In the Majora’s Mask 3D department, it’s been revealed that the game will be released on February 13, so mark your calendars! This is to coincide with the release of the New Nintendo 3DS XL in North America on the same day.
It got even better with the reveal of a Majora’s Mask themed limited edition New Nintendo 3DS XL. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come bundled with Majora’s Mask 3D.
Moving on to Hyrule Warriors DLC, it has been announced that the second pack will be themed around Majora’s Mask and feature Tingle and Young Link as playable characters. You read that right. Tingle as a playable character. This will be a must-buy when it comes out on February 5th.
You can view the entire Nintendo Direct here.
What do you think? Will you be picking up that limited edition 3DS XL? Will Tingle be your new main in Hyrule Warriors? Let us know in the comments, and keep the conversation going.
At today’s Nintendo Direct, the long rumored Nintendo 3DS remake of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask was officially confirmed! Nintendo 3DS owners will be able to return to the grim world of Termina in spring 2015. This time, it will be enhanced with graphics and mechanics resembling the Ocarina of Time remake.
Update: A special edition of Majora’s Mask 3D will be released around the same time. It will include a steelbook case, Majora’s Mask pin, Poster, and a physical copy of the game. So far, this special edition is confirmed only for Europe. We can hope that it goes global.

We will have more information as it comes.

When you work in a place like this, you eventually get used to seeing multiple Majora’s Mask 3D rumors per month, but even I must admit that this one, posted on Gonintendo.com on the 14th of July, bears a certain credibility.
This time around we have a photograph of a store shelf in a Canadian Target store labeled with “3DS ZELDA MSK,” an obvious reference to the long rumored Majora’s Mask 3D.
This should all be taken with a grain of salt, as it could be a hoax. This NeoGAF thread, however, seems to answer a lot of questions and lend credibility to the rumor.
Check out the picture after the jump.
A recent job posting over at Grezzo, the company behind the Ocarina of Time 3D remake, has hinted that they may be working on a new Zelda-related project, asking potential employees, “Would you like to make a Legend with us?” While this confirms nothing, all signs point to the early stages of Majora’s Mask 3D development. We’ll keep you updated as this story develops, and be sure to stick with Zelda Eternity for everything Zelda!
Hey there, Zelda fans! Ever wanted to hear Majora’s Mask music in an even more climactic way? Well, now’s your chance! A composer by the name of Rozen has recently released Part I of his Waiting For The Dawn EP titled “The Predicament Of The Four”.
I’ve embedded the music below, but I would highly recommend visiting Rozen’s website for more details and other media!
Thanks to our good friend Darren for the tip!
In the January 2014 issue of Game Informer, the magazine featured an interview with the director of A Link Between Worlds, Hiromasa Shikata. The interview hit many popular points of discussion. For example, Shikata was able to confirm that future Zelda games won’t necessarily run at 60 fps like A Link Between Worlds did. He also stated his hopes that fans will accept further changes to the Zelda formula similar to A Link Between Worlds’ item rental system.
The most notable question, however, was regarding the references to Majora’s Mask in the 3DS game, to which Shikata responded,
[Having Majora’s Mask in Link’s house] was a special request from Aonuma’s production team. Now why would they ask us to do that?
This statement naturally caught the attention of Majora’s Mask’s fanbase, as it seemed to tease that Aonuma’s team is working on something Majora’s Mask related.
I’ll leave the speculation to you guys.
Just this week, Nintendo released the official video of Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma’s presentation at the New York Comic Con, focusing almost entirely on A Link Between Worlds.
Be warned, the video and following discussion contain spoilers.
In the video, we got to see some examples of the game’s new mechanics in action, as well as some discussion on the difficulty curve, and some insight into the development of the 3D world. Aonuma even through in a nonchalant hint about the future of Majora’s Mask.
