Nintendo announced yesterday that Majora’s Mask 3D, Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS and Star Fox 64 3D will become Nintendo Selects titles on February 4, joining A Link Between Worlds, Ocarina of Time 3D, Super Mario 3D Land and other popular games. Like Microsoft’s Platinum Hits and Sony’s PlayStation Hits, all Nintendo Selects titles go for a suggested retail price of $19.99.
Co-developed by Grezzo, Majora’s Mask 3D saw many changes with the interface, locations, characters and gameplay. Aside from the graphical facelift, Sheikah Stones were added to give Link “visions” that serve as hints, and saving was made much easier and more convenient for on-the-go play via new Quill Statues. Two fishing holes were also included, because what else are you supposed to do when the world is ending in three days?
Majora’s Mask 3D initially saw a worldwide release in February 2015, a decade and a half after we first stepped into the strange, parallel world of Termina. Following the release of Ocarina of Time 3D, fans clamored for Majora’s Mask to receive the same 3D treatment as its predecessor. “Operation Moonfall” was an unofficial, fan-driven movement started by Zelda Universe user SuperDecimal in 2011, following a Nintendo Power interview with Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma discussing Ocarina 3D‘s successful reception. The campaign ended in 2014 with the announcement that Majora’s Mask 3D was officially in development.
If you haven’t had a chance to re-experience the adventure or have yet to experience it for the first time, February will be the best time to do so.
