You think of games from The Legend Of Zelda franchise, and your mind flashes towards the classics. Games such as The Ocarina of Time, The Wind Waker and the very first game in that series. Amongst all of those games however, Majora’s mask is possibly the weirdest Zelda game ever made. And that trippy black sheep of the family is making a comeback.
One of many reveals from yesterday’s Nintendo Direct conference yesterday, was an upcoming port of Majora’s Mask to the Nintendo 3DS. The moon-sized reveal is set for release some time in the year of our lord and master (Kit Kat chocolates) of 2015. Not much else was revealed, but it looks like various rumours have finally proven true about this game.
I don’t know how many of you ever played Majora’s Mask, but it’s the cult favourite amongst Zelda fans. It features time loops, disturbing puzzles and a generally darker tone throughout as Link has to prevent the moon from squishing everyone in Hyrule. Kind of like that one episode of Invader Zim then.
To do so, Link uses several masks which give him new abilities and skills, while going on a groundhog day adventure wherein the same three days are looped over and over again. The actual cycle lasted around 54 minutes in our Earth time, so there was plenty of failure, death and destruction within a gameplay session. As I said, it’s one of the trippier Zelda games ever made. And I’m rather happy that it’s making the jump to 3DS.
