Many videogames borrow from world mythology for their settings, enemies, items and so on. The Legend of Zelda is no stranger to this. It frequently borrows from Japanese mythology, European folklore and many other places. Majora’s Mask took a very different route with this, much like many other things in the game and borrowed plenty of things whose roots are African. Gaijin Goombah takes a look at this in three parts, starting with the bosses. Watch the video after the break!

We had already heard from different sources, including Nintendo themselves, that we were getting new color variations, a new Adventure Mode map, and one more Legend Mode stage in the newest DLC pack for Hyrule Warriors- The Master Quest DLC Pack. But, oh boy, does it go much further than that. According to the European eShop, we’re getting a lot more than we expected with this DLC pack, and you can find the details after the jump.

It’s always been a dream of owning all the masks in Majora’s Mask (might I add, owning them in real life). Have you ever dreamed of owning them? If so, Zelda fans, your prayers have been answered. There’s a new Kickstarter Campaign going on right now, and it promises to deliver real-life replicas of every mask in Majora’s Mask; however, at an expensive cost. Check out more after the jump.

Many fans would argue whether there should be a remake of a Zelda game, or a brand new concept all together. The way things are headed currently, we’re seeing two brand new concepts for the Zelda series. Although, there are also fans itching to hear the announcement of Majora’s Mask 3D, or Majora’s Mask HD, while others want to see more footage of Zelda U. We’re here to discuss which Zelda titles you’d prefer.

Since 2011, we’ve seen the release of Ocarina of Time 3D for the Nintendo 3DS, as well as The Wind Waker HD for the Nintendo Wii U. Both titles have been well received and it has led to numerous discussions about what will be the next Zelda remake. Given the similarities of the game engine between Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask, it seemed like a no-brainer that Majora’s Mask would eventually get the 3D treatment for the Nintendo 3DS.
Would you rather see Majora’s Mask 3D for the Nintendo 3DS, or a Majora’s Mask HD remake for the Nintendo Wii U? Make the jump to hear my thoughts.

Most of the games have a common theme; rescue the princess, gather the Triforce, etc. And that’s great! People want to fight for Hyrule! But somewhere through the journey, people are bound to lose the drive to keep going. The ability to fail, get back up again, and try again, might make some people more lax toward the plot. Knowing that the world will have to wait until you can beat the temples kind of takes off some pressure.
However, I believe that an ultimatum is key to keep someone playing.

M. Bulteau has recently released Demo #8 for his Majora’s Mask opera. This demo in particular has Majora singing lyrics that perfectly match with its theme song as well as its fighting theme for Majora’s Incarnation.
Skull Kid makes an appearance during the video as well and is shown to be under the mask’s spell while Majora is taunting him by wishing to ‘play a game’ with him. All in all, the video itself is pretty creepy and perfectly shows how Skull Kid has unknowingly been taken over by the mask and is being coerced into doing something that he would normally wouldn’t even consider.

One of my favorite things about the holiday season was my chocolate advent calender – not that I knew that it was called that at the time – and even now, as an adult, sometimes I feel the urge to go out and buy one for myself for no other reason than because it’s enjoyable.

A childhood obsession with The Legend of Zelda series is a difficult thing to put behind you as an adult. All it takes is the crow of a bird to send my mind into a spiral of nostalgia, reminiscing about the first time I gazed upon the sheer terror of Ganon’s Castle in Ocarina of Time.
The Legend of Zelda has never provided us with an ending song such as Xenoblade Chronicles’ ‘Beyond the Sky’ or The Last Story’s ‘Toberu Mono.’ Never has the series ended with a song that succinctly sums up the experience of the game through verse.
That’s why when I listen to the lyrics of some songs, I just can’t help but let my mind wonder back to those times spent with a controller in hand, Link on my screen and an adventure beckoning. The following is a look at some lyrics from songs that I have come to associate with The Legend of Zelda.

We are now past E3, our favorite gaming event of the year, and all the interviews are in. Besides our own exclusive interviews, other sites and organizations had their own questions to ask the shot callers over at Nintendo. NZgamer arranged a meeting with Mr. Takashi Tezuka, one of the folks who work so hard to bring us Zelda, to discuss some of the titles announced this year, but managed to sneak in a question about the one game many of us were looking forward to the most: Majora’s Mask 3D.

Many Zelda fans, including myself, were hoping that Nintendo would surprise us with the announcement of a Majora’s Mask remake during Treehouse Live, which took place this past week. Unfortunately, this didn’t happen, and many were left dissapointed. By this time, I’m sure many fans think that their cries for a remake have not been heard, but according to an interview with Mr. Eiji Aonuma, they have.

Whether or not Majora’s Mask is better than Ocarina of Time has been debated for many years, but now there is one thing that we can all agree on: there were some great masks in the second N64 Zelda game. Some masks were fairly easy to obtain whereas others required lengthy side quests, but it didn’t always mean that the more effort required to get the mask meant a more useful mask. Alanna Okun from BuzzFeed has put together, what she considers, to be the ‘definitive’ ranking of all the masks Link can possess.

It’s no secret that the Zelda universe is filled with many different races, some humanoid, like the Gerudo and the Kokiri, and some with traits from other creatures, like the Zoras and the Mogmas. And while none of the races have any extensive backstory behind their presence in the land of Hyrule, it seems that there could be one for the the Sheikah, also known as the Messengers of the Goddess. Through many subtle clues and much research, one can see the shadow of a story behind the Sheikah race, and it is, unfortunately, not a happy one.

There are so many artists that have made awesome versions of Majora’s Mask, yet this campaign for a Kickstarter by Camille Young is by far the most creative. Camille has created “Oni” masks, meaning devil or demon from Japanese literature. The masks resemble Majora’s Mask and are made from resin that she casted and carved herself! She has gathered a group of artists to paint their own wearable Majora’s Masks with their own style! The masks even have a black mesh in the corner of the eyes so that whoever is wearing the mask will be able to see. She is planning on selling blank and painted Oni masks by different artists on a Kickstarter that should be coming soon. Hit the jump to see final versions of the masks!

Last week, I dissected how the events of Ocarina of Time had such a negative effect on Link in his journey that he would most assuredly be a prime candidate for being a victim of clinical depression, as well as potentially experiencing survivor’s guilt. However, there is evidence to suggest that in Majora’s Mask, the Zelda game known for its dark undertones, Link actually has an emotional turnaround, and by the time his adventure in Termina is over, he is well on the road to recovery.
