Majora’s Mask might come to the 3DS if you ask nicely

Since its release last month, Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D has done incredibly well, which is encouraging to Nintendo and Eiji Aonuma, who are considering bringing another title in the franchise to the 3DS. Aonuma, who has had a hand in many of the Zelda games including OOT, Majora’s Mask and The Wind Waker, sat down with Nintendo Power (their August issue has the full interview) and primary focuses on the upcoming title Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. He also discusses what could make a Majora’s Mask remake possible, among other things.

According to Aonuma, Ocarina of Time 3D was made possible, in large part, because fans said they wanted an updated version of the game. He then went on to say that if the same level of interest was shown for Majora’s Mask, “… it wouldn’t be an utter impossibility [to see a remake].” That is not to say you should start calling or emailing Nintendo right now, and Aonuma is not making any promises (a wise decision on his part), but this is encouraging news. 

Sales for Ocarina of Time 3D have been incredibly high, and Zelda fans the world over have proved that even older titles in the franchise are still well loved. While the best we’ve gotten so far is a single comment about a remake of Majora’s Mask not being totally impossible, I can’t imagine a lack of interest for it (creepy grinning moon and all), and fans might not have to work as hard for a Zelda remake as they have for other games, with possibly better results.
