There are many fans that love to share a little bit of their creativity. Well, reddit user Binyeum gave his or her sister an interesting gift for her wedding: a painted treasure chest resembling the ornate blue and gold treasure chest from Majora’s Mask. The box was made to hold the cards and donations for the wedding and even made the traditional theme when opened.

Back in a previous interview, Aonuma teased that the answer to whether or not a “Majora’s Mask 3D” would be made was in A Link Between Worlds itself. As soon as the game was released, the search for answers frantically began. Fans searched every rock, every patch of grass, and every cave in search of answers. Even before the game was released, we knew that the Majora’s Mask was going to make an appearance as a decoration item in Link’s house, and the Milk Bar was also going to be in game. But at last, we have found more evidence.

I have been making videos on YouTube for over two years now, and seeing as The Legend of Zelda is my favourite game series, I’ve done several videos involving the series. My thoughts on Majora’s Mask are probably well known around here as I’ve mentioned a few times that I’m not a massive fan of it. I like the game, sure, and I’ve completed it several times but I prefer most other Zelda games over Majora’s Mask. However, I can’t deny that the game absolutely shines when it comes to side quests and mini games. There are loads of them spread across the game causing you to forget about the impending doom as you help people and win races so I decided to make a list of my top five fun things to do in Majora’s Mask when you should be trying to stop the moon plummeting into Clock Town, destroying everything and killing everyone.

The Lens of Truth is one of Zelda’s special items that, regardless of how players viewed its utility, holds a special place in the heart of general Zelda fandom. A player must brave obstacles to obtain it, both in Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask, and use it to navigate perilous pathways as well as locate hidden enemies. During my own gaming I found this item to be extremely useful, and probably over-used it just to see if there was anything to find. But what would happen if the Lens of Truth became a reality, and what would it reveal when used? Hit the jump to read more!

Ben Briggs, a music artist, has recently uploaded a remix of Oath to Order from Majora’s Mask, on SoundCloud. He has designed the song to have a “Ben Drowned” tone to it, creating a eerie yet lively remix of the already very eerie song. The song is currently not out for download, but you can still listen it here, and on SoundCloud. So go ahead and hit the jump to hear the song for yourself!

It seems as though most people have accepted the idea that Majora’s Mask takes place in an alternate dimension version of Hyrule which is why a lot of the characters from Ocarina of Time appear in the game. While it’s no secret I’m not particularly keen on Majora’s Mask (and, to clarify this time, I’m not saying it’s a bad game, I just think most other Zelda games are better) there are a lot of theories revolving around it, what certain aspects represent and different interpretations of what people say or do and I absolutely love finding out about all these theories. I’m a huge fan of Matt Pat and his Game Theory series (though most videos are viewed with a pinch of salt) and the latest addition to has a very interesting theory: could Link be dead in Majora’s Mask?

The idea for this article dawned on me while I was in the middle of a conversation on Skype with a close friend of mine. It started as a normal conversation about how I had just beaten Majora’s Mask, when I realized something a little off topic. Majora’s Mask appeared in a trailer for A Link Between Worlds. It seemed a little funny to me, as this game takes place on a different timeline than Majora’s Mask, so I asked Doyle, my friend, how this could have happened. He had an interesting theory.

Ever since The Legend of Zelda, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past were ported over to the Game Boy Advance, with the original Zelda game making an appearance on Nintendo’s e-Reader, I have been intrigued and excited at the prospects of playing all of the Legend of Zelda games on nearly every console, be it portable or home-based.
We then received Ocarina of Time along with a Master Quest version as a pre-order bonus incentive for The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. It looked as if Nintendo was going to keep adding content to it’s back catalogue of Zelda games: The Legend of Zelda got updated translations; Zelda II got a “minorly-major” upgrade (which has since been removed for the 3DS) with the experience points remaining where they were when or if Link died on his quest (also, they removed the Water Dungeon shortcut); and A Link to the Past added the Four Sword Dungeon and enabled Link to do a whirlwind slash.

I am not sure if any of you remember, but a few months ago I posted about a work-in-progress Majora’s Mask art project. The project by Mario Mayer is an incredibly realistic, wooden replica of the mask. The mask is not only carved from a single slab of wood besides the horns and eyes but is fully sized and perfectly textured. When I first featured it in July it was only in the beginning stages, without even the spikes or any paint, but now, it is complete! And it looks incredible!

Of all the Links who have donned the green tunic and cap and answered the call to save Hyrule, the Hero of Time stands out as particularly legendary. Not only did this incarnation of Link star in Ocarina of Time, a game many consider to be one of the best ever made, but he went on to save the day again in Majora’s Mask, a cult favorite among hardcore Zelda fans. His influence is keenly felt in The Wind Waker, and again in Twilight Princess, where the Hero’s Shade, a manifestation of the Hero of Time’s past regret, according to Hyrule Historia, teaches his heroic successor the ways of the sword.
Despite his recurring appearances in the series, the Hero of Time’s fate following Majora’s Mask is largely shrouded in mystery. A relatively new fan comic, however, has attempted to fill in the holes and provide an emotional and complete account of this particular Link’s legendary life.

Of all the games the the Zelda series it’s Majora’s Mask that is considered to be the black sheep of the series. It has much darker undertones, subtle references and more theories about hidden meanings than I could mention in one post. However, since the release of Ocarina of Time 3D on the 3DS in 2011, fans of the game have been asking for a remake of Majora’s Mask which even culminated in a worldwide petition known as Operation Moonfall which Nintendo have stated they are well aware of. In a recent interview with the director of The Legend of Zelda series Eiji Aonuma, a rather cryptic clue regarding a remake of Majora’s Mask has surfaced.

Not very many people noticed this, seeing as most were probably too focused on the all the new things that were revealed about the upcoming game A Link Between Worlds, but Majora’s Mask can be seen in one scene of the footage that was shown today.
In the scene that showcases Ravio’s store, if one looks over at the bottom right corner of the room they’ll see Majora’s Mask just sitting on the wall apparently being used as a decoration piece. Not sure if Ravio knows of its origins or not, but I don’t think I’d have it just sitting around somewhere like that.

If you were hoping for a Majora’s Mask remake now that The Wind Waker HD is out of the way, and A Link Between Worlds is almost here, you might not want to get your hopes up. Might. Well, its actually for you to decide or interpret. When IGN proposes the question, here’s what Eiji Aonuma says;
“Please write that I laughed. Don’t make it sound like I laughed because I was troubled or inconvenienced or put out. I don’t want them to read anything into it. But if you want to say that I laughed, I think that would be a good answer. It’s really up to them. If they want to interpret my laughter as, ‘yeah, we’re making it’ or ‘no, we’re not,’ I guess that’s really up to them.” Read more…

Have you ever thought, “you know, these sound effects would be great if combined into a song,” while playing any game in the Legend of Zelda series? No? Well, don’t feel bad, because neither have I. However, if you did actually think of this, and/or you are interested in what such a song sounds like, then look no further! Musical artist and “YouTuber” Tom Jackson (LilTommyJ) has created such a compilation of sound effects from Nintendo 64 classic, Majora’s Mask, which manages to both amaze and satisfy one’s thirst for a catchy jingle.

Welcome to the final editorial on the side-characters of Majora’s Mask, and, for that matter, my final editorial on the characters of Majora’s Mask altogether! I’ve got a jam-packed finale for you guys this time, having managed to cram, not four side-characters, but four groups of side-characters into this one, so it’s pretty long! I really should have separated this one into two parts as well, but I thought, why not have an extra-long finale to this series? I hope you’ve been looking forward to this one, because I can guarantee you that it will not disappoint!

Growing up with the Legend of Zelda series probably means that your childhood was done right. And many of us wished we could dress up as Link or as Princess Zelda on a daily basis, not just Halloween. We’ve seen a lot of cosplay of those beloved characters, but seldom do we see some of the lesser characters such as Skull Kid. Well, there’s a brand new TV show devoted entirely to cosplay, and just guess who ended showing up?

Here are the final two analyses which I initially planned to have in one single editorial. Now, you’ll be able to see why all five analyses in a single editorial would’ve been too long. The second instalment in this series of analyses looks at ??? and Tingle. At the end of this editorial, I will confirm the line-up for next week’s editorial, as suggested by you: the readers.

Before you start asking what’s up with the title, I originally planned to have this split into two parts: Author’s Choice and Reader’s Choice. However, after writing up the first part, I realised it was too long and split it into two parts, as well. In this first instalment of my series of analyses on the side-characters of Majora’s Mask, I will be looking at Tael, Anju, and Kafei. Unfortunately, if you were looking forward to my analyses of ??? and Tingle, you’re going to have to wait another week, sorry.

Over the years there have been some great pictures by fans of the Zelda series and here’s another one but it has a bit of a different take on the universe. Most of the ones I’ve seen have been very well drawn and capture the scene it’s trying to depict very well. Whether it’s a dark, gritty epic clash between Link and Ganondorf or a romantic scene beween Link and Zelda, the scene is very well set. A recent picture drawn by Mike Vasquez and colored by Joe Hogan is a montage of various characters from the series but the style of the picture makes even Re-Deads look less horrifying and almost cute….almost!

As we all know, the Legend of Zelda fan community is passionate and quite vocal about the opinions that are shared and/or disputed amongst its members about one of Nintendo’s most famous franchises. One such example of this enthusiasm can be seen in the incredible amount of support that Operation Moonfall has gathered. For those of you who do not know, following the release of Ocarina of Time 3D on the Nintendo 3DS, an objective dubbed “Operation Moonfall” was created to generate support and persuade Nintendo to bring another Nintendo 64 classic, Majora’s Mask, to the handheld. Time has passed, but the hope of a 3DS remake for one of the most highly praised Zelda games has not diminished, despite the fact that A Link Between Worlds is set to release on the platform. For proof of this statement, look no further than the creation of a Kickstarter project to fund the printing of Operation Moonfall posters!

As you can probably tell from the title, this is another compilation of several smaller analyses. In fact, given that I’ve gone through all the main characters of Majora’s Mask that I could make full editorials on, the rest of the editorials in the series on Majora’s Mask characters will be compilations. In this editorial, I will be exploring the characters of the souls that inhabit the transformation masks. With four masks in total under this category, and two with mysterious origins, this is sure to be an intriguing read…

Sorry about the absence of this editorial last week, but my school work was piling up, and I knew it would continue to do so if I put it off to write this, so I did my work instead. But this week, I was completely free to write this! Skull Kid is believed to be the main antagonist of Majora’s Mask, and essentially, he is, but in truth, it was Majora, who was slowly taking over Skull Kid’s mind, and in the end, it was Majora that Link fought, not Skull Kid. However, Skull Kid’s personal history is still interesting, and I’ve always wondered about why Skull Kid does some of the things that he does throughout his appearances. If you feel the same way, then hit the jump to find out what Skull Kid is all about!

The namesake of Majora’s Mask is an artifact that is widely revered in the artistic community. Its rich colors and its eerie, intriguing design make it the perfect centerpiece for fan art. The artistic value of the mask is clearly defined by its intense appearance. It sits as a fantastic icon for one of the most dark and original games in the Zelda series, which any Zelda veteran can recognize. However, while the mask is popular among artists as a subject matter, someone has never (to my knowledge) tried to recreate the mask exactly as it appears in the game.

Before we begin, I’d just like to say that this editorial was originally going to come after ‘Who is Skull Kid?’, which would’ve been my next one, but after my rather narrow-minded take on the origins of the Happy Mask Salesman, I decided I’d do this one early, while the idea of exploring the multiple theories around the origins of Majora’s Mask is still fresh in my head. There are multiple, separate ideas on the origins of Majora’s Mask and who Majora is, some conflict with each other, and others fit together like puzzle pieces. With that said, let’s take a look at each of these different theories.

This creepy bugger is one of the most infamous and unnerving characters of the entire Zelda series, second only to Tingle (and I shall also be doing an analysis on later); I wouldn’t be surprised if there were people who actually feel that the Happy Mask Salesman is creepier than Tingle. After all, he has violent mood swings, very sudden, jerky movements, and wants back an evil mask with magical powers that was stolen from him. This guy has mysterious motives and even more mysterious origins, and, in general, he’s just a very mysterious guy. With that said, let’s try and make him a little less mysterious, shall we?

To those who have not played Majora’s Mask, but know a decent bit about it, Tatl would appear to simply be a yellow Navi; but those people would be wrong. While Tatl does take Navi’s place as Link’s sidekick, Navi was just there, serving no real purpose and wasn’t much of a character; however, Tatl, while also serving no real purpose, is very much her own character.
Now, a lot of people last week commented that I was more retelling the story of Majora’s Mask, rather than exploring Link’s character, and I agree. I’ve felt a similar way about several of my previous editorials, as I was analysing each move a character made as they occurred. In future, I’m aiming to make these editorials more structured and looking specifically at each character’s personality and how it affected their later actions, rather than the other way around. With that out of the way, let’s get straight into it, shall we?

I’ve been waiting for this one for a long time, and now finally the moment has arrived to wonder: who is the Link in Majora’s Mask? Well, yes, to almost all Zelda fans it is common knowledge that the Link in Majora’s Mask is in fact the same Link from Ocarina of Time, and is still, essentially, the Hero of Time. But, he is, in fact, different. I’ve got your attention now, haven’t I? Well, keep reading if you want to find out how Majora’s Mask’s Link is different from his appearance in Ocarina of Time.

The potential of a 3DS remake for Majora’s Mask has been discussed for nigh on two years ever since Nintendo decided to treat fans with Ocarina of Time 3D. Fans of the title have been waiting and hoping that Nintendo reveals its plans to create the remake yet were utterly disappointed when the gaming giant decided to develop a sequel for A Link to the Past instead which will release this November.
IGN recently had the opportunity to chat with Nintendo’s legendary developer, Shigeru Miyamoto, and asked the question about whatever happened to the idea of Majora’s Mask 3D. His answer may surprise you so hit the jump if you’d like to find out!

Recently nintendolife was able to sit down with Eiji Aonuma for an interview at this past E3 where they got to talk about a wide range of topics regarding the Zelda series. However when asked about the possibility of Zelda getting her own game sometime in the future he makes a very interesting response. Also later on within the article he makes a few comments about the possibility of adding DLC or extra content to future titles, Majora’s Mask, and revisiting A Link to the Past.
