Majora opera demo eight previewM. 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.

Majora's MaskOne 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. There is now a Kickstarter project attempting to market themed advent calendars, starting with Majora’s Mask. Hit the jump to see what this fan cooked up!

Lyrical Associations with The Legend of Zelda

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’sToberu 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.

masksWhether 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.

Fan Made Majora’s Mask

MariFebruary 24th, 2014 by Mari

Preview 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!

majora's mask artworkLast 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.

Dr. Link: Diagnosis of Characters #6

TylerJanuary 26th, 2014 by Tyler

This week, by popular demand, I am going to take a look at a well known character who makes an appearance throughout many games in the Zelda series. His name is never given, and is on most occasions seen out and about, worrying about his task at hand. He is constantly running from place to place, but seems happy where he is.

mm3dsmockupsmall Ever since the re-release of Nintendo’s most popular Zelda title, Ocarina of Time, on the 3DS, fans have been crying out through emails, phone calls and even petitions to get the gaming giant to create a 3D remake for the other N64 Zelda classic, Majora’s Mask. Over two years of teasing and speculation have occurred driving Zelda fans up the walls and leaving them frustrated as to why Nintendo won’t confirm or deny whether a remake is actually in the plans. Thankfully, a recent interview between magazine publication Game Informer and A Link Between Worlds director Hiromasa Shikata has created even more hype for the hope of a Majora’s Mask remake on 3DS.

Gate_of_TimeOne of the things for which the Zelda games are known is the creative design and gameplay of many of their titles. Probably the most famous twist of game design is their recurring utilization of time travel. Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask and Skyward Sword are all games which have incorporated time travel into their storylines. However, although these games are extremely popular, the fact still remains that along with the benefits and new ideas presented by this new mechanic, gaping holes in the game’s continuity arise with the introduction of this concept.
