Operation Moonfall is a campaign to bring Majora's Mask to the 3DS. Shortly after the release of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, the producer of The Legend of Zelda, Eiji Aonuma, stated in an interview that a Majora's Mask remake was "not an utter impossibility" as long as the fans showed enough interest. Thus Operation Moonfall was born. Operation Moonfall has been around since June 2011 and is currently ongoing.

Progression

Within five days of the release of the Majora's Mask 3D petition, it reached 10,000 signatures. In response to this, Nintendo of America replied that there has been no announcement of Majora's Mask for the 3DS, but are interested in hearing what the fans find important. To date, the petition has reached over 50,000 signatures.

At the 25th Anniversary Symphony Concert in London, Aonuma told the Portuguese e-zine MyGames[1] that a Majora's Mask remake is still a possibility for the future. He reiterated this sentiment in a November interview with GamesRadar:

"I did hear that there's a website here that was launched in North America by some people that are hoping we'll release a 3D version of Majora's Mask. Of course I'm very flattered to hear that so many people are asking for that game, so I hope that at some point in the future hopefully, maybe, we'll be able to do something with it."
