Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D Features Significantly Reduced Loading Times?

It appears that The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D will contain significantly reduced loading times. This is based on a few comparison screenshots between the upcoming remake and the Nintendo 64 original. The shots look at the updated rendition of Clock Town, which seemingly connects to its different sectors in a way that will provide a more seamless experience to players. Nintendo previously confirmed that Majora’s Mask 3D includes enhanced graphics and added features for a smoother experience. The game is scheduled to launch in spring 2015 for Nintendo 3DS.

  1. Maybe its just a backdrop that you zone through. So much reworking on the npcs would need to be done to connect the whole clock town.

    1. Not really; if you watch the NPC’s during the original game, you can actually see them approaching your sector from a mile away, outside the area that you can pass through without transitioning to another part of town, if you happen to be standing in a position that would let you see them approach.

      The mailman is a prime example of this at work; follow him along on his route, and just before he would go into a new zone, go in before him then turn around and watch; you’ll see him coming up behind you.

      The 3DS could likely handle seamless transitions in town, on the regular 3DS.

      On the N3DS, it’s possible that anything outside of a main zone change[such as going from outside of town to inside town] could be connected seamlessly due to increased processing power.

          It’s Highly unlikely it will be localized your best bet is to get the fan translation which i have have actually got one of the games that was for sale at a convention. (cost a bit though!) A bit of a bother it won’t fit in my gb micro or my sp though. But still it’s an amazing game!

  2. That’s one thing I can admit Nintendo is being stubborn about. The Wii U would look so much more appealing to potential buyers if it had the full VC library available. I just don’t see what they plan to gain by waiting to release 64, or even Gamecube VC games.

  3. Ah that’s good if that’s the case. I’m pretty excited for this as majora’s mask is my all time fave Zelda game! :D

      Majoras Mask is one of my tops titles of the franchise. But the “BEN drowned” story got pretty annoying very fast! But regardless this is a title i’m happy to be getting the limited edition of.

      1. Yeah I never got scared of BEN drowned lol. It was interesting at first, but after seeing and hearing about it everywhere it gets old-along with those other popular creepypastas but I still think Jeff is cool. But yes I’m very happy about this game coming out. It’s just my opinion I found it better than ocarina. Idk I like the themes a lot, plot, and of course the character sidequests.

  4. Obvious – Nintendo:

    ‘Golly wow, why VC older games when we can remake them?’

    Notice how GC VC was confirmed, and then we got Wind Waker HD? No coincidence they pulled it back. And why release N64 Games whwn they too can be remade? Simply slap new textures on, polish the game, and BAM, twice as better.

    It has it’s pros, and it has it’s cons, but in the end, I choose potential remakes over straight up ports. It’s obvious that’s where they’re headed.

    1. Yea, let’s just wait for the dozens of major N64 and Gamecube games to be remade, it’s only gonna take 63729 years ! /s
      Why can’t we have both ? Why can’t we have a full VC library AND remakes ? A wide range of VC titles would be a huge plus for the WiiU, and I personally can’t see what exactly Nintendo is waiting for.

    1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

      Considering basically everyone, specially the Third Class Empires do not optimize properly, the loading times will always exist until they stop being lazy and corrupted…

      1. Nintendo games don’t usual have long load times from what I’ve seen. Super Mario 3D World loads so quickly on any stage…

  5. Off the topic, is anyone aware that “NES Remix Pack” is coming out on Wii U December 5th (same day as Captain Toad Treasure Tracker)? I don’t remember ever hearing about this on MyNintendoNews. I discovered it when filling out surveys on Club Nintendo.

  6. I can’t wait. This game was a big part of my childhood. I’m really hoping for a Master Quest of sorts or an expanded Bombers Notebook.

  7. I like Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask but Majora’s Mask is unique because of the powers the masks give to Link like transforming, running faster, etc.

  8. This is stating the obvious, the 3DS has much better specs than the N64, just by virtue of that the game will run faster, like how WIi games like Xenoblade tend to load faster on the Wii U, the extra CPU and GPU capabilities shorten loading times.
