Zelda: Majora's Mask and Triforce Series E3 Update
Greetings and salutations! With all the E3 hubbub going on we need every hand we can get to report all this news! Hence, moi! Anyway, we've got some info on Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask and the Triforce Series for you all today, courtesy of Nintendo Power's website and Nintendo.com.
It seems that the next installment of the popular Zelda series will involve our trusty Link as he chases down his horse, Epona, who has been stolen by a mysterious masked man (no, not the Lone Ranger). Stumbling through a conveniently placed dimensional rift, he winds up in a familiar land... familiar except for the giant moon that seems to be on a collision course with the ground! That's amore!
Figuring into the game will be a series of masks (didn't see that one coming, did ya?) which will probably give Link new features, powers, and a better chance to snag candy on Halloween. However, that last one will have to wait awhile since Link won't be coming home to players till November 20th, according to the big N. But that's okay because it'll give you the chance to save up the $69.99 to buy the game and the expansion pack (if you don't already have it) which is supposed to bring the "mystical game universe to its full graphic potential". How mystical.
As a final piece of info, it turns out that Link's small screen adventures are far from over. Nintendo is planning on bringing out a 3-cart series of Zelda games for the Game Boy Color tentatively titled the Triforce Series. Speculation is that the carts will interact with each other ala Shining Force 3 (but this time at least we'll be getting all three parts!)
But wait, there's more. Thanks to pics guru Stahn, we've got pics of one of the games in the Triforce Series, called the Mystical Acorn (as evident by the pics). You can check them out here.
And, last but not least, we've got the Majora's Mask E3 Quicktime Movie for you all. You can view it here.
That wraps it up for this edition, but I'll probably be back with another update soon.
