Zelda producer discusses possible Majora's Mask remake

By Jack Taylor – 25 July 2011

Eiji Aonuma has said that a Majora's Mask remake for the Nintendo 3DS could happen if there was a great enough desire for one.

Speaking to Nintendo Power magazine, the official Nintendo publication for North America, the producer of The Legend of Zelda series confirmed that a remake of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask was possible.

Talk of a Majora's Mask 3D remake has become more substantial since the release of Ocarina of Time 3D, the remastered version of the original Ocarina of Time, last month.

After playing Ocarina of Time 3D, the next question that comes to mind is: will we get a Majora's Mask remake next?

Would you like to play such a remake?

Well, yes!

It's been 13 years since Ocarina of Time was originally released, and one of the big things that we made this remake possible was that there was an outpour of emotions from people who said they would like to see this game done. We said we could do it in 3D, so we did. I think certainly if there was a similar output of emotion and clamor from fans for a remake of Majora's Mask, it wouldn't be an utter impossibility.

Thinking on it now, having a handheld Majora's Mask where you could kind of just set things down on your own time - close it, set it aside and come back to it later - might be a game play element some fans will actually take to and might really appreciate. Especially considering how you really had to rush through the original game, in a sense.

In the interview, Aonuma also discussed The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, as well as The Legend of Zelda HD Experience shown at E3 2011 and the development of a new title in the series for Wii U.

Surely that's old news by now...
