For those of you who do not know, the Nintendo 64 version of Majora’s Mask contains a supposed easter egg referencing Star Fox. Masks resembling a fox, a bird, a rabbit, a frog, and a pig are all set in a row on Majora’s Mask‘s mask collection screen.
A recent GameSpot interview with Eiji Aonuma, the director and producer of many Zelda games, explained that this reference was actually not intended by him. However, he goes on to explain that an employee could have orchestrated this easter egg without telling Aonuma. Whatever the case, it’s a fun little detail that you can add to your mental bank of Zelda trivia.
Here is a quote of what Aonuma said regarding this matter:
You know, as it turns out, I think the ordering of those masks in the N64 version might’ve been entirely coincidence! As we progressed through [the] game’s development, they just lined up that way. Or, I guess the other possibility is someone did it on purpose, but they just didn’t tell me about it!
Do you think this was merely a coincidence, or an intended easter egg? Let us know in the comments.
