As many know already, November’s Nintendo Direct held the unforeseen announcement of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D at the beginning of the Direct. Now, being two months since then, we’re only left to speculate what kinds of additions and changes were made to the remake. Addition-wise, there’s a lot they can do with the game, ranging from new quests, to new items, or just nifty little features. But do you think they’ll take the same route that Ocarina of Time 3D took, and make a Majora’s Mask 3D Master Quest? If so, would you be satisfied with it? Check out more after the jump!
Ocarina of Time 3D featured the original Master Quest (remade in 3D, of course), and was obtainable by completing the main-game at least once. The Master Quest was an excellent addition, allowing players to re-experience the same game, but in a whole new -or at least different- way. Majora’s Mask 3D could benefit from a Master Quest, as it wouldn’t change the main-game, but would only add onto what’s left afterwards. Once you’ve completed the game’s story-line, it’s all optional afterwards; as is all post-game content. And sometimes having an extra little challenge is fun! It keeps your interest in the game alive, and it makes the game last longer than it would have originally. Especially with it being a Zelda game. The story isn’t everything, in this case. There’s always all the side-quests, and Majora’s Mask is chock-full of them. Not only that, but that’d be something truly new. (Something that IS new is that giant eyeball in Gyorg’s mouth. That’s a little different…)
What do you think? Would you like to see a Majora’s Mask 3D Master Quest? Or do you think the game would be better off without it? What other additions would you like to see in the 3D remake? And, what do you think the New 3DS-exclusive features will be? Amiibo, perhaps? Sound off in the comments!
