Throughout the past several months, he has been exploring the underlying themes of each individual Zelda title. This past week in particular has seen the release of ruminations on both Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask. Each…

I don’t want to sound like a contender for the next presenter of Top Gear but some say it’s the best console ever. Some say it had some of the greatest games ever made.

Whichever your preference, you can now get a custom N64 from Etsy…

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…

The reviews are finally in and Majora’s Mask 3D has not met with a terrible fate! Though the game releases next Friday in most countries, critics were able to get their hands on advanced copies and they were not disappointed, well most weren’t. Metacritic compiled a list of the reviews done thus far, and out of more than thirty reviews only eight gave the game a rating of less than 90 out of 100. Some of the most reputable review…

With all of the hype surrounding Majora’s Mask 3D, many fans have been enjoying a nostalgia kick and pondering all of the components that made Majora’s Mask so enjoyable. One of these would certainly be the music, which always fit the different scenarios so well that it helped immerse players into the atmosphere of Termina. Musician Michael T. Samson recently arranged an extraordinary addition to the multitude of Majora’s Mask medleys out there. Samson’s orchestral rendition “The Legend of Zelda:…

A video comparing the intros of Majora’s Mask on the N64 and Majora’s Mask 3D has been uploaded to Youtube by user Master0fHyrule. The video shows scenes from the title sequences and the games’ introductions– taking us around Clock Town and then into the Forest for that fateful altercation with Skull Kid. The graphics are greatly improved, and few things have been drastically altered. You can judge for yourself whether the 3D intro imparts the same tone as the original.
