The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3DS remake shows up in UK retailer’s database

UK retailer GAME seems to think that a 3DS remake of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is a sure thing. Nintendo Life got a tip on Wednesday that a listing for the game showed up in the store’s database, as well as the GAME-owned website Gamestation. Once word of the listing made it around the Internet, GAME removed the listing.

Will it happen? Almost definitely. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D was the first million seller for the Nintendo 3DS, and even with the system’s newfound steady sales, Nintendo can always use another sure thing.

Zelda’s pappy Shigeru Miyamoto’s been teasing a Majora’s Mask 3DS edition for months now as well. Shortly after E3 2012, Miyamoto said that Nintendo was trying to decide which Zelda it wanted to redo for 3DS next. “We haven’t quite decided yet, whether we’re going to do A Link to the Past, because there’s also the possibility of doing a remake of Majora’s Mask,” said Miyamoto, “This is something we’ve certainly been talking about and doing a little bit of experimenting with, to figure out which way we’re going to go.”

Remakes, re-releases, and reboots can get exhausting and expensive. Did you really need to drop $50 on the Super Mario Bros. 25th Anniversary Collection for Wii? You could have hopped on the exact same machine’s Virtual Console and spent half that amount on the same games.

Sometimes a remake is worth it though. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D for example is well worth dropping cash on a 14-year-old game. Bullet points on the back of the box sound like empty marketing babble—Stereoscopic 3D! New textures! Improved frame rate!—but they all translate to play that’s much smoother and more colorful while staying faithful.

A repackaged release of that game’s direct sequel Majora’s Mask would be much appreciated for those exact reasons. More than a decade on, Majora’s Mask is still brilliant but playing it is clunky. N64 games look muddy run through an HD television, the Wii’s emulation of the game isn’t perfect, and playing it on a PC emulator isn’t ideal either. In all cases the game could do with some polish, since it suffered from the same slow frame rate as Ocarina in its original incarnation.

A sped up Majora’s Mask with touched up textures? That could be more desirable than the rumored A Link to the Past sequel.
