Majora's Mask 3D In Development Since 2011
Read what Eiji Anouma has to say about it.

Nintendo finally announced The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D a few days ago, but it turns out its been in development since 2011! In fact, they've been working on it since they finished developing Ocarina of Time 3D! You're such a tease, Nintendo.


I think Skull Kid's laughing at us...

Through Miiverse, Zelda series producer Eiji Anouma had this to say:

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D was actually in development almost immediately after we finished working on The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, which was released in June of 2011. So although weíve been working on the game for quite some time, we didn't want to say it was being developed until we were at a point where we could proudly say that this is not going to be just another remake and that it's going to be worth your time. For a while now, when fans from Japan and around the world would ask me if we were working on a Majora's Mask remake, I would silently plead in my heart, thinking, "Please wait a bit longer!" (laughs).

We've spent a lot of time making sure the gameplay experience is smoother than in the original version without taking away from this unique world. I hope those that havenít played the original game, and those of you that played it but gave up mid-way through will take this opportunity to give the new version a try.

Oh, and I should mention that we havenít removed the distinct look and feel that are unique to this game, so it should live up to this game's Japanese catchphrase, "this Zelda has a scary vibe." Brace yourselves for what this world has to offer! (laughs)

He does go on to mention that there definitely will be some changes in this new version, but he hasn't yet revealed what they might be. If you have any guesses, let us know on Facebook!

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D is due for release in spring of 2015.
