It might not come as a surprise and many people may have just assumed this, but until today we weren’t 100% sure if Grezzo, the team that created Ocarina of Time 3D, was involved in the upcoming 2015 release of Majora’s Mask 3D. A report today that went over everything being developed at Nintendo off of a German Nintendo site seems to have confirmed Grezzo’s involvement. How long they have been involved is unknown for those wondering, however they did wrap up and release their last game in 2013.
This suggests they have at least been involved since 2013, even though Eiji Aonuma suggested the game has been in development since 2011. It could also explain the slow moving nature of the development process, as the Zelda team was making The Wind Waker HD, A Link Between Worlds, and Zelda U for most of that time, somewhat making Majora’s Mask 3D a side project. If Grezzo hopped on board in late 2013, they likely spearheaded most of the development from that point on, giving us the early 2015 date.
Remember that this is all pure speculation – we aren’t sure exactly when they got involved and just how much of the project they handled, but given the full plate the Zelda team has had this whole time, I feel it’s rather obvious that Grezzo lead the charge once they got involved. Does this make you happy? Did you enjoy how Grezzo handled Ocarina of Time 3D?
