Aonuma Discusses Adding Majora’s Mask To Breath Of The Wild

With the release of the first Breath of the Wild DLC Pack coming tomorrow, Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma sat down to talk about one of the items being added to the game. Alongside a Tingle costume and Midna’s Helmet, the DLC will add Majora’s Mask to the game. According to Aonuma, this was the first piece of DLC armour he suggested. This is unsurprising as Majora’s Mask was the first Zelda game which Aonuma directed. The full interview is available on Nintendo’s website.

When the development team started discussing including armor items associated with previous The Legend of Zelda games, I was the first one to speak up: “Please add Majora’s Mask!”

When you acquire this mask in the Master Trials and equip it, it has the effect of making minor enemies like Bokoblins, Moblins, and Stal enemies think that Link is part of their group, so that they won’t attack Link. (Although Kilton might complain: “You’re hurting my business!”) If you’re not good at combat, I recommend you try this mask out.

The mask’s design is true to the original, but its size was been modified many times to match the size of Link, as if he’s Skull Kid wearing Majora’s Mask. It looks even more creepy at night… But don’t worry—the moon will not fall in this game.

    1. I think they are trying not to reinvent the wheel with this DLC and also trying not to break game mechanics too badly. Right now, they are trying to subtly enhance the game, not necessarily extend it.

    2. It actually is pretty unique. Now you don’t have to switch between all the different Kilton masks and you can blend in with enemies even when it’s a diverse group and not just one type. What would’ve been really cool though is if it scared them but I’ll take this instead.

    I love you for this, Aonuma! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Marry me, please!? lol But seriously, though. I’m glad I can finally have Link wear that awesome freaking mask. Now I want to see that mask in every future Zelda game from here on out! Same goes for the Fierce Deity Gear. Just… don’t lock it behind an amiibo again since Nintendo did a shitty job in stocking the Majora’s Mask Link amiibo at Best Buy! I wonder if it’s gotten a restock yet on there? Highly fucking doubtful. :/

    1. Good gravy, homebro. Get over the Amiibo stock thing, ya dungus, it’s such a weak argument. Maybe look beyond best buy? … Craigslist? Local paper classifieds? ebay? offerup? gsalr? facebook classifieds? LetGo? NFC tags from etsy? some look pretty cool, even have some as coins. got a smart phone with an nfc writer/that can act as the amiibo without tags, which cost literal pennies anyway and permantly hold the code? got an acquaintenance with such a phone? you won’t get the paper weight, but you’ll get the ability, which seems to be your particular complaint for at least this post. (In other posts you claimed you preferred to go and pick it up from a store in person, so which is? you want the abilty? or the item bought directly from store?)

      Run-on sentence: In all honesty you make me not bother to read the comments here sometimes because I think, “hmm, hope none of the local naysayers are clogging the useful information and turning what should be 10 comments into 40 or stifling possible camaraderie by spouting the same generic, pathetic and vitriolic refuse that will never dissuade someone from trying or enjoying something they think they might like to (because they already clicked the article link to see more info) by citing only hearsay or conjecture or ‘that’s not cool enough, compared to x system/developer/t-shirt’, etc.’ probably are, though.”

      Guy, I know no one will likely see this message en masse, and that’s all the better, but you will if you have notifications turned on or what have you. Hopefully you can understand in all seriousness that I say this to you as genuinely and as personally as this medium can afford: why do you and others on the site choose to do this, brother? It’s sad. You aren’t going to change people’s opinions and I doubt that’s your aim. You come to agitate. I know you like Nintendo and video games in general, this truly can’t be fun for you, what you do here. There are better ways to spend your time and other ways to release aggression (possibly?) and/or have banter with people who enjoy that sort of faux-fighting, if that’s what you think is happening here. There are forums to hate on Nintendo, or half-hate as you sometimes do, it’s very puzzling. In any event, please, relax a little, my friend. For real.

        Weak argument? So wanting better stock at websites like Best Buy, GameStop, & Amazon so I don’t have to hunt down something I shouldn’t have to do so for or even pay more than an item is worth is a weak argument? *rolls eyes* Whatever. Sounds like just a bunch of damage control to defend Nintendo to me.

      2. In all honesty tho you had some good points you ultimately did the same. Introduced a tangent to the topic at hand therefore extended the comments.

        If anything I’ve seen the fanboys stroking their own egos and historical (Google search) knowledge more so then us being negative/truthful.

        I find it worse when people go off into solutions or alternatives to a problem with Nintendo when we all should know by now that they’re a corporation and they don’t care about us.

        Also how someone spends their time is no ones business. Just as he, you, me comment on here it’s a personal choice. At the end of the day we’re all Nintendo fans in some shape or form, or we’re trolls, but whatever it may be that’s the community in MNN (until Disqus comes in and we can block each other).

        As for the topic at hand we shouldn’t have to find alternatives for a supply issue that Nintendo should better manage after so long in the industry. Period. You either call them out or be happy with mediocrity.

      3. Steve – be happy with mediocrity, perhaps. Or make your own happiness/luck Andrea find a workaround. It’s simple mane. I wasn’t commenting on the amiibo so much as the attitude of the spoiled children who want it noooooooooooow (Veruca Salt reference). Tuff stuff fluffy puff. For a consumer of children’s toys to be so demanding and whiny of a company that, as you say, is just doing business the best way they believe it should be run, is asanine and sad. I know your happiness doesn’t hinge on a figurine, sir, and deep down so does Kalas. I’m not damage controlling anyone, the argument applies to any and all companies of similar ilk, like the examples I cited before. I think m’dude needs to swallow a large, horse suppository chill pill, because I can’t stand seeing his and other shtpstng all over this site. And on a human, interpersonal level, I think the dude(s) owe(s) it to his/their soul(s) to stop being the source of refuse and waste scattered on what would be an otherwise enjoyable experience. Ok. I’m really done now, no more.

          You are on the wrong site if you want everyone to be happy & just take mistreatment. I refuse to be one of those idiots that just sits around & takes being treated like trash. I got way too many high standards & respect for myself to be anyone’s bitch. I spent enough of my life being that for Nintendo. I will not bow to anyone that thinks they can treat me like shit ever again. Anyway, if you want nothing but positivity from fans, I hear Nintendo Life has plenty of that with people getting banned for standing up for themselves & not taking any of Nintendo’s crap.

    2. papi, you so thoroughly missed what I was saying dude. And yeh, tuff stuff fluffy puff, they’re hard to find, but so are UFC tickets and so we’re some beanie babies and the list could go on for days. The reason I took such a vested interest in replying to you as I did is I honestly and sincerely wonder if your attitude is the same way in real life about anything and everything. I wonder what happiness you deprive yourself of by becoming so fixated on one thing, and I really hope that you can tell I’m being sincere man. I don’t think it’s all that big a deal in the end, just chill brother. For the sake of the readers who would like a little more positivity on a fan site for stuff they like, but mostly for you, dude. Is it worth it?
