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.
