Majora’s Mask Or A Link To The Past Remake Confirmed
News for another Zelda remake has been on everyone’s mind lately, thanks to the help of Operation Moonfall. Nintendo has hinted toward both a Majora’s Mask and A Link to the Past. While Miyamoto himself has stated he would love to see A Link to the Past on the 3DS with the ability to play it in 3D, Nintendo has also mentioned that if enough fans want Majora’s Mask remade, they may give us what we want. Neither game has been confirmed until a recent interview with Miyamoto by IGN where Miyamoto mentioned that one was going to be made, but wasn’t sure at the moment of which and with the 3DS already out and the Wii U just around the corner, for what system it would be best to remake the game for.
Make the jump inside for the full quote from the interview.
“We haven’t quite decided yet, whether we’re going to do A Link to the Past, because there’s also the possibility of doing a remake of Majora’s Mask. This is something we’ve certainly been talking about and doing a little bit of experimenting with, to figure out which way we’re going to go. (Fans will have to wait) just a little while longer (to hear a decision).
We have so many goals right now. We’re always looking at expanding our audience and giving people the opportunity to get their hands on 3DS and see what kind of fun gaming experiences they can have. And now, we’re also tasked with pushing the Wii U. So we have lots of good opportunities in terms of thinking about which Zelda game is going to be best for which purpose.” - Shigeru Miyamoto
Since both systems were mentioned by Mr. Miyamoto it leads me to believe that we will see both games being remade on the 3DS and the other on the Wii U. As I mentioned earlier Miyamoto has said that he would like to see A Link to the Past on the 3DS. In a past interview when talking about Ocarina of Time for the 3DS, he also mentioned that Ocarina of Time was meant to be enjoyed on the big screen as a home console title. As we all know it ended up being on the 3DS which makes me think Majora’s Mask will be remade for the 3DS as well, but if both games were to be remade this would mean A Link to the Past may be remade for the Wii U, which doesn’t make much sense as A Link to the Past would seem to be a better handheld remake with a 3D effect, while Majora’s Mask being displayed on the big screen with HD graphics would suit it the best as Miyamoto said about Ocarina of Time.
It is a lot to take in for any Zelda fan, but it seems that we are in fact going to get one remake and with a little luck both. Which game do you want to see remade and for which console would you like to play it on? Would a Four Swords style remake work for you, or would you need a full Ocarina of Time 3D style remake to be satisfied? Let us know in the comments below.
so which game do you prefer?
everyone claims majoras mask is the ultimate zelda game but whatever
