Indeed, as Nintendo President Satoru Iwata announced, “something is on the way, and it isn’t just the moon.” During the Nintendo Direct today, Nintendo revealed that Majora’s Mask is being remade for the Nintendo 3DS and 2DS, and will be available spring 2015. Majora’s Mask was originally released on the Nintendo 64 in 2000.

“Something is on the way, and it isn’t just the moon.”

The remake features all of the original content, now entirely in 3D. For those of you new to the game, Majora’s Mask takes place in the area of Termina, instead of the typical Hyrule. Only Link can save Termina from the mysterious Skull Kid and stop the moon from falling and destroying everything. Oh, and you only have three in-game days to complete all of this. Satoru Iwata describes the world of Majora’s Mask as “very strange and somewhat spooky,” which is definitely true, as it’s regarded as one of the darker games in the franchise.

A special edition of Majora’s Mask 3D will be available for Zelda fans in the United Kingdom. This special edition of the game comes with a steelbook game case, a double-sided poster, a special Majora’s Mask pin badge, as well as the game itself. Price and availability have not been announced. It is also not known if this will be available in other regions outside of the UK.

We’ll provide more information as it is revealed, so be sure to check back frequently!

    Would love to have a special edition 3DS too (just as when OOT3D launched)

    • Richard Rahl

      How many 3ds’s do you need? I already have a normal one and a LoZ:aLBW version.

    • Kash

      I’d prefer if it were the New 3DS, considering it’s being released in Spring as well.

  • craZ

    Boom baby! Launch day purchase! WHOAH! Guys, what if they do a MM3D Master Quest? I doubt they will, but if they did :O

    • craZ

      Also, just wait til Monday. Club Nintendo’s gonna put up the original, I’ll bet.

    Darn it I was hoping for wiiU… ah well at least it’s getting SOMETHING finally

    • heroofmasks

      both oot and mm have always been on the same platforms both where on the n64 both got ports on the gamecube and both got vc ports on the wii eshop and also u can get them on the wiiu via going to the wii menue and going to the wiishop there so a mm remake wouldnt be good oot3d was made for the 3ds so naturally its brother would follow it plus its cheaper that way

  • Chad

    I swear though if Nintendo of america doesn’t let us have the special edition I’ll be pissed…..

    • disqus_edY1RhBAWt

      Me too. I don’t understand why the US gets neglected. Doesn’t a large part of their revenue come from NoA or am I mistaken?

      • Chad

        I see Nintendo of UK anf Nintendo of Japan spoiling their fans and then there’s us…

        • disqus_edY1RhBAWt

          Yeah, it really sucks.

  • Theking OfallTacos

    im a lil disappointed they aint making a 3ds for this game :/

  • Trinosaur

    Congrats to all you majora fans out there! This is exciting for you, I bet! 🙂

  • Majora’s Espurr

    Why doesn’t Nintendo care about the US? First Club Nintendo, then Hyrule Warriors, then Pokemon ORAS, and now this?

  • disqus_edY1RhBAWt

    They seriously better offer that bundle internationally or else I’ll lose it.

  • Jonathan Payne

    I honestly never expected to see this. I haven’t been this pleasantly surprised since I found out that Shulk was coming to Smash Bros., and Xenoblade was coming to the 3DS. I am seriously considering purchasing one just for this game, as it is my favorite game of all time.

    • Richard Rahl

      Why are you happy xenoblade is comign to 3DS. It’s already on wii. It won’t look or play as good as it did on the Wii

      • Olympion

        Do you have any idea how rare Xenoblade has become? It sells for 90-100 bucks on Amazon FFS!

        • Aaron Christensen

          actually I believe it’s available on the Gamestop website for like $60 now.

      • Olympion

        Do you have any idea how rare Xenoblade has become? It sells for 90-100 bucks on Amazon FFS!

  • antoton

    I do hope they fix some of the awful synthesizer sounds, like in the ‘Alien invasion’ and Great Bay Temple themes

    • Tygr300

      i bet that they will re-record the soundtrack like in OOT3D

  • Finally..

  • Cameron Fraser

    15th anniversary makes sense, figured they would wait till 2015.

  • Neil Simpson

    The new updated graphics look fantastic but…am I the only one who thinks the new moon design just isn’t as creepy as the original?

  • heroofmasks

    gotta say im surprised i just came back from zelda informer and theres a massive war going on there about how mm isnt going to be remade on the wiiu when nintendo would be stupid to do it becouse u can already play mm on the wiiu through the wii menu/wii menu wiishop poeople wouldnt buy the game for 50 dollers when they could get a cheaper original port for less then 10

  • rusVan

    Best news ever.

  • Davey Elmer

    Awesome. This is my favorite game in the franchise, and just might motivate me to get a 3DS.
