Nintendo still planning a Majora’s Mask remake?

majorasmaskA short while after Ocarina of Time 3D was released, a number of Zelda fans harbored suspicions that Nintendo was planning to create a remake of Majora’s Mask, the second 3D Zelda game released on the N64. Nintendo brought up many fan’s hopes by officially expressing the possibility of such a remake, as well as releasing The Wind Waker HD, demonstrating that their Ocarina of Time remake was not a one-off.

Hiromasa Shikata, the director of A Link Between Worlds, recently let slip another hint about the possibility of a Majora’s Mask remake. In a recent interview, Hiromasa was asked about the numerous references to Majora’s Mask that can be found in ALBW. He 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?”

Does this quote reveal anything new? Not really. Still, anyone hoping for a MM remake will take solace in the fact that there is a financial incentive for Nintendo to create it, especially given the not-so-stellar Wii U sales of late.

Deleted Majora’s Mask Cutscenes Uncovered!

Some people like to go through the files of games and see what they can find. It can get boring, but often you’ll eventually discover some hidden treats – unused character models, maps, textures, and so on. And someone snooped around the game files of Majora’s Mask and discovered two hidden cutscenes that aren’t used in the game, which you can see in the video below. Although these scenes were discovered a while back, they haven’t been given much attention until recently.

Operation Moonfall – Official Recognition

In an interview with Games Radar, Eiji Aonuma confirmed Majora’s Mask 3D is officially under consideration. He even acknowledged the “Operation Moonfall” movement. Here’s what he said:

“I did hear that there’s a website here that was launched in North America by some people that are hoping we’ll release a 3D version of Majora’s Mask. Of course I’m very flattered to hear that so many people are asking for that game, so I hope that at some point in the future hopefully, maybe, we’ll be able to do something with it.

Operation Moonfall members may just (eventually) end up getting what they want.

Majora’s Mask ROM (Debug)

This is a really interesting Majora’s Mask ROM. Developers design and use debug ROMs in order to test their games, and you are able to download this ROM and play it using Project64. This special type of ROM allows you to select any level of the game you want, and you can even get into some hidden areas that are not available on the commercial version of Majora’s Mask! Check the YouTube video above for more information and download.
