No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Again launches soon, in about 24 hours in Japan. And the game’s creator, Suda51, took to Twitter today talk about a special shirt the game’s protagonist will be able to collect and wear. Presented in a tweet with the caption “24  hours remain,” the shirt prominently features Link from Majora’s Mask. Attentive players will remember these words from Majora’s Mask, shown on the last of three days that drive the game’s mechanics. Suda51 is one of the…

Nintendo has some wonderful news for the Zelda fans who also love great prices. Three new titles have joined the Nintendo Selects library, with Majora’s Mask 3D being one of them. And joining Majora’s Mask 3D is Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS, and StarFox 64 3D. Players can pick any of these wonderful titles up for just $19.99 USD/$29.99 CAD. I think it’s wonderful that Nintendo is continuing the Nintendo Selects program. They often select the most classic and…

There’s nothing quite as chilling as the final countdown in Majora’s Mask‘s third day. As the moon looms overhead, Link scrabbles to finish whatever deeds he can before returning to the dawn of the first day. A crucial part of this atmosphere is the music, a chilling background to your increasing panic. Returning with yet another incredible remix, musician Vetrom has produced an instrumental mix of the “Final Hours” track that has installed terror and panic in so many Zelda fans over…

A common theme throughout the Zelda series has been the recurrence of many main characters. Obviously Link has taken part in every main title, and there have been many reincarnations of Zelda and Ganon/Ganondorf. Sometimes we get to see other characters like Impa, Beedle, or some king of Hyrule or another. The point is clear; if there is a certain character you like from the Zelda games, there is a chance they will pop up again in a future game. So the question is,…

Termina Field’s theme from Majora’s Mask can be seen as a triumphant return for the Zelda series main theme. After composer Koji Kondo opted to use a fresh theme for Hyrule Field in Ocarina of Time, many fans were excited to hear Zelda‘s most iconic tune once again in that game’s follow-up. Retaining the classic song’s primary melody while infusing it with an air of mystery and danger, Termina Field’s theme has certainly become a favorite of mine. Musician Bulby…

I’m one of those people that love to stream game music while working at the computer. Tunes from video games help to motivate my creative juices while remaining mostly unobtrusive as they bleed into the background. And while a frantic battle theme or punchy boss theme may come through my speakers sometimes, I tend to enjoy the more subdued tracks while I work. For the Zelda fans that, like me, enjoy a chill soundtrack for their day-to-day life, a recent…

The Zelda series is widely known for its epic adventures and timeless tales. However, in between the lines of these wonderous quests lies deep-seeded tones of darkness. From the Usurper King Zant, to the warped mind of Ghirahim, to the obvious big bad guy known as Ganon, darkness has always been a constant concurrent in the series. Enter the dark form of ZeldaMaster, who believes the only Zelda game to be a truly dark tale from beginning to end is…

Majora’s Mask has established itself as one of the most memorable Zelda games to date, due in part to its strikingly macabre narrative. Video game historian Mama Robotnik marvels at the game for its uniqueness and departure from a typical Zelda storyline. For this reason, Robotnik set down a longform essay reinterpreting the title’s story based solely on in-game lore. With accompanying quotes and art provided by over a dozen talented fans, the story of Majora’s Mask is masterfully reproduced….
