THE VIEW: The 3DS remake of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask has had Nintendo fans salivating at the thought since it was confirmed! With an initial review score of 9.9 from IGN we think the 3D upgrade may just give it the extra 0.1 it deserves!
If Ocarina of Time is an epic, then Majora's Mask 3DS can only be described as an epic epic.
This time Link, the Hyrulian Hero, struggles against time to unravel the unsettling mystery of Majora's Mask.
This mind-bending follow-up to Ocarina of Time sparkles with an artistic flair and presents a premise that shatters the foundation upon which most games are built. Perpetually reliving the same three days and three nights, Link is able to explore his world and relate to other characters like never before. Plot is often an afterthought in video games, but it is the driving force in Majora's Mask. The storyline meanders through the game like a living creature, poking around here and there to reveal greater insight into the land of Termina.
Link is a well-armed detective in this mysterious adventure, gaining greater insight into the lives of established characters and meeting fresh faces as well. At first glance Majora's Mask appears to be uncharacteristically dark and brooding, but in fact it is usually the fear of the unknown which creates this uneasy mood. As Link gains knowledge, the world becomes less intimidating.
The mystery begins a mere three months after Link's triumph over Ganondorf in Ocarina of Time. Now downtrodden, Link guides Epona through a sombre fog in search of his faithful fairy friend Navi. To Epona's surprise, two mischievous fairies materialise out of the mist and send Link's steed into a panicked retreat. These two fairies turn out to be siblings, appropriately named Tatl and Tael. As Link falls to the ground and loses consciousness, a disguised Skull Kid emerges from the fog. Both merry and macabre, the masked marauder steals Link's Ocarina and immediately mounts Epona. Link gives chase of course, completely unaware that he is pursuing not a mere Skull Kid, but one possessed by the mystical power of Majora's Mask. At the conclusion of their flight, Link unwittingly follows the Skull Kid through a powerful portal, which leads to a parallel universe.
This new land is called Termina, and although it contains many of the same features and inhabitants as Hyrule, it is a unique world which is only familiar to Link in an unsettling sort of way. It doesn't take Link long to learn that he has arrived in Termina at the most inopportune of times. Not only is there a Skull Kid on the loose driven by the dark power of Majora's Mask, but the very moon itself will plunge through the atmosphere and devastate the land in a mere three days. Link knows that this is no mere coincidence. Before dawn on the fourth day, Link must somehow solve the mystery of Majora's Mask and save Termina from the lunatic mission of its own moon.
Masks play a vital role in Link's Terminian adventure. Early in his quest, Link encounters a travelling salesman from the Happy Mask Shop. It's not immediately clear whether this shady character is aligned with the forces of good or evil, but he claims to be the rightful owner of Majora's Mask. It is this travelling salesman who places a three-day time limit on Link's exploits, coincidentally coinciding with the inflexible schedule of the falling moon. The nomadic representative of the Happy Mask Shop gives Link his first mask, the Deku Mask. While wearing this mask, Link is able to do business with Deku Scrubs who would normally ignore him in human form.
When Link wears the Goron Mask, he inhabits the body of a fallen Goron named Darmani. Goron Link is one of the most unusual Gorons you'll ever see. While disguised as the rock-munching Darmani, Link is equipped with a powerful punch and the ability to roll up into a speeding spiked wheel. When Link picks up the Zora Mask and transforms into a Zora, he instantly gains the ability to speed through the water like a dolphin. Obviously, many of the puzzles in Majora's Mask require Link to use the primary transformation masks listed above. There are over 20 additional masks, though, which can help him other ways. Some masks allow Link to talk with specific characters, while others give Link special powers like the ability to run more quickly. At times, the possibilities seem endless.

This was a brilliant game. A remaster of the original N64 game, the gameplay experience is far more streamlined and the graphics were beautiful. The controls were a noticeable improvement on the original, and it was a fun game to explore and lose myself in again. Although there are only four dungeons, the real beauty of this game is in the side quests which can keep you playing for hours. They don't feel repetitive or boring, as sometimes side quests will do in other games. One of my favourite instalments in the Legend of Zelda franchise.
Before Breath of the Wild, Majora's Mask was the most unique and interesting game in the Legend of Zelda series. Following up on Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask has Link fighting to save the world of Termina from the impending crash of the moon. However, there are only 3 days to save the day, and this is strictly time limited in the game itself. The result is the darkest, creepiest, and most tense Zelda game in the series, and it is all the better for it. One of the most underrated games of the 2000s, now available on 3DS.
This game is so great and gives me flashbacks from when i was a kid and played this game on the Nintendo 64 for those that haven't played the Nintendo 64 version you will love this game it has so many great mechanics and the gameplay is legendary. I love this game and highly recommend it.
Often seen as Ocarina of Time's not-as-good sequel, Majora's Mask is an entirely different beast. Instead of being all about a grand hero's adventure, it's more about the people of the world, their problems, and how you can help them (on top of saving the world from the moon). The game has a decidedly mournful air about it, which only increases as you progress through the three days. People become despondent or outright deny the fact that the moon is bearing down on them. Everyone has a problem that needs solving - from trivial things like needing toilet paper, to more serious matters like searching for a lost fiance. As Link you can choose to help all these people, but there's never enough time to help them all before you must restart the three-day cycle and all your actions are forgotten and your solutions undone. The game plays almost exactly like Ocarina of Time, that is very solidly. Collect items, play songs, find heart pieces. The game scales perfectly to the 3DS from the N64, and looks great with the updated visuals. While it only has four main dungeons, there's much more to do outside of them in a world that feels very much alive as people go about their routines. Highly recommended.
This game was absolutely brilliant - it was actually a little bit darker than I expected it to be, however I enjoyed this characteristic of the game. I have spent hours upon hours absolutely absorbed into this game, and would recommend it 100% to anybody young or old. It is seriously worth every dollar that you spend!
