In case you missed the massive news post we put out a few days ago, we at Zelda Universe and Zelda Informer have put together a plan that we call Operation Moonfall. This was done in response to Eiji Anouma’s statement, saying that if there was enough excitement/demand for a Majora’s Mask 3D remake that he might be inclined to get that done.  So we went all out, with a Facebook page, petition, and more, to make sure that Nintendo got the message: WE WANT MAJORA’S MASK 3D!

And recently, we’ve gotten a slightly encouraging response from Nintendo of America in reply to an email that one of our users, Zorathon, sent out. Read it after the jump!

Thanks for writing. We appreciate the enthusiasm of our Zelda fans! I can understand why you would like to see this game released for the Nintendo 3DS. I would like you to know that your comments have been documented and reported to the relevant departments here at Nintendo.
At the risk of dampening the excitement you feel, I must be clear that no official announcements have been made regarding a remake of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask for the Nintendo 3DS. However, we like hearing what our consumers find important.
We hope you continue to enjoy the Nintendo 3DS and all the great titles currently available or on their way. Keep checking our website (Country Selector at Nintendo) for all the latest news andinformation.

Now this doesn’t sound encouraging whatsoever on its own. It sounds like a generic response, something we all get when we ask these questions.  But when compared to a reply about Operation Rainfall, it starts to sound better:

Thank you for your enthusiasm. We promised an update, so here it is. We never say “never,” but we can confirm that there are no plans to bring these three games to the Americas at this time. Thanks so much for your passion, and for being such great fans!

Compare the “no official announcements have been made” of the Moonfall response to the “there are no plans to bring these three games to the Americas” of the Rainfall response.  No official announcements DEFINITELY sounds better than having no plans.

On a slightly related note, Operation Moonfall now has a DeviantArt page/group! You can check it out, join, and post your own art in it to show your support for MM3D, like this small design for cartridge art for the game:

And one final thing: as of right now, the official petition has 10295 signatures! Keep it up, guys!
