Drop Everything! Majora’s Mask Confirmed for 3DS

During the Nintendo Direct this afternoon, Nintendo announced that the 3DS port of Majora’s Mask will finally be happening. You can check out the announcement trailer here.

There hasn’t been an actual date but the trailer says Spring 2015. I know I, personally, am over the moon with this news, as Majora’s Mask is my favorite installment in the Zelda series. It’s one of the few Zelda games that really had my attention from start to finish—the story and setting were so much darker than the others, which really drew me in as a kid.

Alongside the announcement for the game, was the announcement of a special edition of the 3DS release for Europe.

The special edition will include a Steelbook Case, a Majora’s Mask Pin, and a double sided poster. The video showcasing this is just above.

What does the Niche Gamer Nation think of this announcement?

    I will only drop everything when Shenmue gets confirmed for a re-release.

    This is the best Zelda. Followed very closely by Wind Waker.

    If they cut some of the adult themes out like they did with the 3DS version of Ocarina of time, then fuck that shit.

    Well people have been begging for it for like 7 years?

    To Nintendo’s credit pretty much everyone has been asking for this.

    And to be quite honest, I wouldn’t mind if a certain subsidiary of Nintendo would re-release/translate a certain SRPG series.

    Another Europe-only limited edition Nintendo release. What is wrong with you, Reggie? My body is ready!

    I can see them screwing us over like Hyrule Warriors again. 300 only available, only at Nintendo World in New York.

    Id be more impressed if they were re-mastering and localizing games that weve never played. That way they can save the money and give all of us that brand new Wow experience!

    No, no I wouldn’t be that impressed.

    The last time we got a remake of a Fire Emblem game that was never localized, we got…Shadow Dragon. Ugh.

    EDIT: As an addendum, I would like to add that I’d rather just have something like the Chrono Trigger/Front Mission ports for the DS where it’s still the SNES game but added in extra interface features and a couple of other extra stuff.

    I’m glad it happened, I never cared for OoT.

    I never played it, so I wouldn’t know.

    Ocarina of Time didn’t do much for me, but this one is probably better.

    They did, it’s called Forklift Truck Simulator 2009.

    Am I the only one who hated Majora’s Mask?

    But, isn’t Iwata himself the head of NoA nowadays? It’s his call, not Reggie’s.

    Fair enough we’ll simply agree to disagree!

    It’s different. Everything you do is timed cause you have three days and then Boom, it goes back to the start. Well what you’ve done stays done but still. It’s also a lot darker than OoT. Worth a try.

    Really great news. I still have the Nintendo Power guide for this and the N64 golden cartridge. It’ll be cool to have the best Zelda games on my 3DS and maybe New 3DS when it comes out.

    I really liked it but not as much as OoT and it took some time to get into it. It’s just really different than the other Zelda games.
