You’ve been met with a terrible fate, haven’t you?
Well…actually, we haven’t, thanks to an announcement by Nintendo President Satoru Iwata. “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.”
Fans of the series have called for it for years now. And, this afternoon, Nintendo announced via Nintendo Direct a remake of quite possibly one of the most hyped sequels of all time for the 3DS.
With no explicit details released about the specific new features, we are just left to marvel at the glory that is…Majora’s Mask.
Majora’s Mask, a direct sequel to Ocarina of Time, was originally released for the Nintendo 64 back in 2000. Ever since Ocarina of Time was released for the 3DS, fans have been waiting patiently for this remake to show itself. And, four years later, we will have our game.
And dear god in heaven it looks beautiful.
…I mean, as beautiful as one can get with a face like that.
And the Special Edition – which includes a special Majora’s Mask pin badge, steelbook case, double-sided poster, the Majora’s Mask 3D game card…oh and is slated for a Spring 2015 release – looks amazing.
As a big fan of the Legend of Zelda series, I can’t wait for this sequel…and guess I’m going to have to revisit Ocarina of Time to remind myself of just what young Link went through.
