Samson recently arranged an extraordinary addition to the multitude of Majora’s Mask medleys out there.

A ‘Knock-Out’ Zelda Sale Including A Link Between Worlds, The Legend of Zelda, and NES Remix 2

A-Link-Between-WorldsDuring this month’s Nintendo Direct it was announced that Nintendo would be having three weeks of Throwback sales to celebrate the release of three Wii titles on the Nintendo eShop.  Last week’s release was Super Mario Galaxy 2 with older Mario titles on the Virtual Console being on sale.  This week however we get the release of Wii’s Punch-Out!! which oddly enough ushers in the sale of two titles from the Legend of Zelda series and one title that happens to have Link in it. The sale starts 1/22 at 9 a.m. PT and goes to 1/29 at 8:59 a.m. PT.

Most exciting of all is a $10 price drop of the newest Zelda game ‘A Link Between Worlds’.  For those of you who still haven’t picked it up this is a great chance as newer Zelda titles almost never have a full price drop (2011’s Skyward Sword for the Wii still retails at most places for $50).  So in the event you’ve been on the fence until now, picking up this amazing game for $29.99 is a great deal.

ZeldaMajorasMask_EnemyNeijironWe have partnered up with talented artist Brendan Milos to help create some high quality artwork pieces for our Enemy Artwork Project. This is a collaborative fan project to create artwork for all of the Majora’s Mask Enemies in the game.

His latest piece of art is his take on the Nejiron. These warped Goron-like enemies can be found on the Road to Ikana, as well as within the Stone Tower Temple. They will roll towards Link, trying to squash him, while also exploding if they have been attacked. Certainly one of the more twisted enemies that appear in the game. You can see a thumbail version of the image to the left, but go ahead and make the jump to see the full sized image, along with where you can find some of Brendan’s other pieces of enemy artwork.

Majora’s Mask 3D Bow Mini-game with the Gyroscope Technology

Untitled Nintendo’s Japanese YouTube channel recently released a short video showcasing the Shooting Gallery mini-game in Majora’s Mask 3D. Despite the video having no translation at this time, it’s relatively easy to gather what’s going on. With a minute and fifteen seconds to knock out as many red Octorok’s as you can- watch out for those dastardly blue ones!- at the cost of 20 rupees, the general concept remains the same. However, there are some key differences to the original game. For one, the red and blue colors are far more distinguishable now than they were before. Also, the shop’s décor has been given more detail. Most importantly, though, the gyroscope technology makes the movement of the bow more fluid. To most, this will increase the chances of getting a perfect score! Jump to watch Eiji Aonuma take a crack at getting a 50/50.
