In an interview with Nintendo's Eiji Aonuma in the upcoming August issue of Nintendo Power, he is asked about the prospect of a 3DS remake of the fan-favorite The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask in light of the successful release of Ocarina of Time 3DS:
It's been 13 years since Ocarina of Time was originally released, and one of the big things that we made this remake possible was that there was an outpour of emotions from people who said they would like to see this game done. We said we could do it in 3D, so we did. I think certainly if there was a similar output of emotion and clamor from fans for a remake of Majora's Mask, it wouldn't be an utter impossibility.
Thinking on it now, having a handheld Majora's Mask where you could kind of just set things down on your own time – close it, set it aside and come back to it later – might be a game play element some fans will actually take to and might really appreciate. Especially considering how you really had to rush through the original game, in a sense.
Please make this happen, Nintendo. Not only are high review scores pretty much guaranteed, but it will also give your floundering 3D handheld another extraordinary title that will get more people to buy it. Hey, we've got children that have no idea what Majora's Mask is about, and that's just not right.
