According to a recent interview within August’s edition of the popular Nintendo Power magazine, Zelda series’ pagan god Eiji Aonuma stated, among a plethora of things, that the possibility of an eventual Majora’s Mask release depends on the emotional demand for it.
In fact, he affirmed the recently released Ocarina of Time 3D was actually made because a lot of people longed for it. “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… 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.”
He elaborated further on potential gameplay features, stating that “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.”
For those of you not in the know, Majora’s Mask is the somehow underrated direct sequel to the critically and commercially acclaimed Ocarina of Time; a game that featured many innovative and groundbreaking elements, as well as a significantly darker story to Zelda standards.
Here’s hoping a Majora’s Mask 3D remake becomes a reality. Humanity deserves it.
