Nintendo Could Still Be Considering Zelda Majora’s Mask Remake

majorasmask

Legendary developer Shigeru Miyamoto met with IGN last year to discuss all things Legend of Zelda. Miyamoto said that the development team were debating between two separate Zelda products  – a remake of Majora’s Mask and A Link to the Past sequel. We already know now that they prioritised A Link to the Past style sequel called The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, which is due out later this year. Could it be that now work has nearly commenced on The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds that the team will move onto Majora’s Mask? IGN certainly seems to think so.

    1. It was published today by IGN. The actual interview took place a year ago, but IGN seems fairly adamant that we could see Majora’s Mask. I knew if I didn’t post it my inbox would be flooded!

      1. I love Majora’s Mask and am anxious to hear any scrap of news on it.

        Thank you!!

        1. Indeed. Majora’s mask is so amazing. The music and overall atmosphere of the game is second to none.

            1. young link in smash should have been majora’s mask link, bunny ears, mirror shield, gilded sword, his increased agility, maybe even transfo masks. would be so cool Y^Y

            1. yes, it would be awesome to see it in hd the same as OOT. it would be like playing it like the first time on 64. that feeling doesnt come back to often like it was when you first played OOT. same with MM. xenoblade is probably one that captured that same feeling. that is really hard to capture by the way. the point is it would be awesome for the 64 ones to be on wii u in hd, they should have instead of windwaker since that game doesnt age from its visuals.

  1. Commenced is not the right word to describe a game thats going to be released in a few months

    1. glad i wasn’t the only one who saw that. i know it’s just a blog, but come the fuck on, people.

    1. Yes we already got the ports for the GC, TP ported to Wii, then we got the Oot3D, now WWHD just focus on the new content

    1. Grezzo, the company behind OoT 3D, could remake Majora’s Mask easily. That wouldn’t hinder the development of an all-new Zelda game.

  2. Seeing as how I never really played Majora’s Mask when it was new, I’m all for a remake.

  3. I certainly wouldn’t complain. They could hand it off to Grezzo like they did with OoT 3D if they want to focus on something else. The fact that MM reused a lot of OoT’s assets can only help as well.

    Majora’s Mask is pretty much my favorite Zelda so I’d definitely pick up a remake of it

        1. I had to assume he was joking when he said MM was over-rated, as it’s one of the most epic and intriquing Zelda titles.
          I would love a 3D, polished version.

          1. Actually I’m not joking. It’s a whole stupid repetitive cycle. It’s overrated because half of the zelda fans don’t know how to stop living in the past. I’m a hardcore Zelda fan and that game is more overrated than Oot. I don’t want remakes i just want a new title.

  4. It sounds like he’s acknowledging that Majora’s Mask fans have passed on, hence the “in my memory.”

  5. How about you give us new games instead, Nintendo? I’m tired of all those remakes and sequels. When was the last time they created a decent new franchise? They’re still milking 20 years old franchises, seriously. I’m a Nintendo fan myself but I can’t be the only one to grow insanely tired of seeing the same franchises or even same GAMES over and over again.

    1. The only games i’m getting tired of is the Mario Bros. it has gotten old really quick. X is a new IP so I can’t complain about that.

      1. Yes, totally agreed on the Mario Bros. part. It’s the most annoying one, in my opinion.
        And yes, X does look quite good, it’s not a first-party title though, I believe.
        (original poster, by the way)

    2. /edit
      If not new franchises, give us new series or new games within those existing franchises at least.

    3. But Nintendo has always changed the story, added new characters, new gameplay style, new art style, and new graphics….. Halo on the other hand, is still… “SHOOT IT!! SHOOT IT!! SHOOT IT!!”

  6. This should have been the Zelda game that deserved to be remade. Now I feel like people are demanding for too many remakes. I’d much rather prefer Nintendo focus on the new Zelda.

    1. Majora’s Mask was made in one year using OoT assets.

      MM3DS would take less time using OOT3DS assets. Less than a year!

      Story, level design, writing, music, etc it’s already done.

      but I agree too many remakes is a bad thing. WWHD I don’t know why the f*** they chose that considering it ran at Wii’s max res. but w/e

      Oracle games are remakes of Zelda I and II which got changed last minute. But you can still fight ganon.

      Majora’s Mask is my favorite Zelda. So I’m pretty crazy about seeing a remake. I’d be a nintendo slave for life if they did it.

  7. i think we’ve had enough remakes- OoT,WW,star fox, DKCR they should just focus on creating that new zelda game…

    1. DKCR was not a remake my friend lml you hilarious. It was a whole new game in the series of Donkey Kong Country

    1. If they do this, I’d want a fully upscalled, HD remake, not a shitty port.

      I would think since they did a 3DS rebuild, a M Mask 3DS rebuild would be easier than an HD, WiiU remake.

      I’m just saying, if they put it on WiiU, It better be fucking georgous and not just a quick port to push WiiU sales.

      I’d prefer a 3D version, but that’s just me.

  8. If they give it for some 3rd party team to make it for them that would be great , while the first party teams focus on the new Zelda games

  9. HD Version please :3 and make it made by the same guys who made the fake trailer last time :3

  10. Really hope they still do it! OOT 3D came out near the start of the 3DS release, maybe it would be cool to release this near the end? At the same time I want it now! And I really hope they do it!

  11. why the fuck do people want mm remake so bad. you can fucking beat the game in like 5 hours. 8 if you want to do those lackluster sidequests. the first and second games need a remake, not mm.

  12. Do it, but add extra content, like a mm master quest or something to make it better than the original.

  13. Between Wind Waker HD and A Link Between Worlds, I’d rather this didn’t happen for a few years. I really want it to, but not as much as I want an original Zelda or two.

  14. Nintendo upscale Majora’s mask to 1080P, put it on the Wii U and make a sequel to Majora’s mask on the 3DS for next year. With Square-Enix publish a true sequel to Chronotrigger on the Wii U, to be made by Monolith-Mistwalker-EAD-square division and :). Also give retro and platinum games to make STARFOX on the Wii U, with vanquishesque ground mechanics.

  15. Nintendo is deep into the development cycle of the first Zelda for the Wii U. So all above that are saying nintendo should focus on a new Zelda. Hello Aonuma and company are busy working on two new Zeldas. One is the finished sequel on the 3DS, while the other is the Zelda magnanimous on the Wii U, scheduled for a Holiday 2014 release :).

    Oh! Wait! I forgot Zelda and Metroid fans are the hardest to please.

  16. Considering I’ve never played this, I would like for them to remake this for the Wii U. Anyhow, can’t wait till Wind Waker comes out. Haven’t played that either.

  17. I would actually like a revamped Twilight Princess game for the Wii U… but that is just me personally. As for Majora’s Mask… I don’t think I like that idea, but that is only because I was never a fan of MM. I hate, hate, HATE the time constraints. 💋

    Let these guys who made this trailer work on majora mask,and make it for the Wii U!!!!!!

    Majora Mask deservs to be remade with upgraded graphics and be on big the screen TV,so whole family can watch to.the 3ds is good,but its mostly for solo players.

    and Majora Mask had a great story,which shouldnt be put on handheld.

  19. I think that they could make a wii u remake to it should be AWESOME

  20. Although Majora’s Mask is my least favorite Zelda game out of all the ones I played, I do think it deserves a remake. But I wish it would be an HD Wii U version, instead of a 3DS version. I don’t play my 3DS very much.

  21. I don’t get it, did everyone miss this? He is fairly clearly indicating a huge WINK WINK towards a real remake of Majora’s Mask. Quote –

    “NL: Fans have often said that they’d like to see a 3D remake of Majora’s Mask, just as there was one of Ocarina of Time. There were rumours that it was a possibility – is that still the case, or are you focusing on new games from now on?

    Aonuma: You’ve heard rumours? [laughs] Hmm, I wonder! [laughs again]

    NL: I would be very excited myself, it’s one of my favourites of the series.

    Aonuma: Majora’s Mask is a very special game – it’s the real hardcore who like that one. If we were to make a remake of that one then we wouldn’t want to let them down. We’d have to put our heart and soul into it. So, you say you’ve heard rumours, but I have to say it would be quite a commitment to do that.”

    1. I love the game… its dark and quite interesting involving yourself in the lives of people who have unfinished business during an end of the world scenario. I wish the game had been longer with more stuff like that to do…

  22. Considering? They’d be foolish not to make it… I’d love to see a remake on Wii-U and a Prequel explaining the Oni Mask… or a sequel.
    Yes… I love having cake with my ice cream! :D
