Don’t fret, the Bombers’ Notebook isn’t going anywhere. The notebook is going to see some improvements in Majora’s Mask 3D, thanks in large part to a suggestion from Shigeru Miyamoto. In a recent column from GamesMaster, Eiji Aonuma discussed some changes being made to the Bombers’ Notebook, as well as talking about the experience of playing Majora’s Mask on the go.
“We were told by Mr. Miyamoto that he felt there were a lot of users who finished the original without even noticing all the hidden events scattered around the town. He said that he wanted us to make sure users were more aware of them this time around.” – Eiji Aonuma
He went on to say that the notebook will take advantage of the fact the system contains two screens. In fact, it will act a bit like an electronic notebook:
“(the notebook has been adjusted) to act more like an electronic notebook that leads players to these hidden events”
Then he went on to say:
“When the game was launched, I believed that the real purpose was for players to overcome this pressure and experience a sense of achievement. On a portable console, users don’t have to choose when or where they play, they can keep on playing the game whenever they want. I think this should allow all users to enjoy that special sense of achievement.”
