Tag: Majora’ s Mask

A very interesting and humorous Zelda comic was created by Nintendo and it is called The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Hijinks. There is now a second part to the comic in which it continues on from when Link obtains the red 3DS. It is quite interesting to see what Nintendo can do to promote their games and this was definitely both a fun and creative way for them to promote Majora’s Mask 3D. Check the comic out after the jump!

We have already shared with you that you that in a fantastic little mini-game found in the lobby of Tri Force Heroes you can discover some music from previous titles but in a recent GameXplain video they showed off little more of what they found. When the player uncovers a ball that acts as a music box they can hit it and it will play various tunes, including the Clock Town theme.

Last time on With a Terrible Fate, I undertook a three-part analysis of the Song of Healing, a central game mechanic taught to Link early on by the Happy Mask Salesman.  But in spite of arising several times so far in our discourse, I have yet to ask the question of precisely what the Happy Mask Salesman is, or what he is doing in Termina.  In spite of existing on the outskirts of Termina’s world, some of the most memorable quotes from…

This past Monday GameXplain posted a video explaining the difference between Deku Link’s water skipping ability in Majora’s Mask for Nintendo 64 and Majora’s Mask 3D. Even though it’s not a big difference, some people are complaining about the slight change. While you still get just 5 jumps on the water, you’re not allowed to use the spin attack to gain momentum. For example, you can’t use a spin attack to easily get to the lily pads on the left…

In this article, With a Terrible Fate concludes its miniseries on the Song of Healing by examining why it is ineffective against Skull Kid.

Today on With a Terrible Fate, I analyze the tragedies of Darmani and Mikau, and offer an explanation of why Link is uniquely able to help them.
