In order to save some time in game programming, Nintendo will sometimes use graphics for more than one game. This was the case for the entrance sign to Romani Ranch in Majora’s Mask. It is the same entryway arch from Kakariko Village in Ocarina of Time. As a matter of fact, it has the same writing on it as the Ocarina of Time sign as well. Translated to Japanese, it says “Welcome To Kakariko Village”. Of course, someone who is not paying attention or does not know how to read Japanese or Hylian would not be able to tell as easily that it said the wrong place on it. Take the jump to see a picture of the Romani Ranch arch with the writing on it!
Imagine Link walking around in this strange new land trying to figure out his whereabouts. This sign would really throw him off. He would think he had found a familiar place only to see that it isn’t Kakariko Village at all but just some old farm reminiscent of Lon Lon Ranch. Do you think he would get lost or is Link too brave to let that get to him? What do you think would happen? Let us know in the comments!
