In the latest Nintendo Direct presentation, we got a first look at a new limited edition Nintendo 3DS for The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D, which releases next month. Series producer Eiji Aonuma follows up with a little tour of the game.
The video begins with the start of the game, where Aonuma shows how it looks like a festival is about to begin, along with something terrible, which some of you may already know all about. He then walks around town to show off some of the characters you’ll meet.
The above is a look at a newly added owl save point for Majora’s Mask 3D. While these have existed before, they have a new look and have also been relocated. The new “Feather Statues” will also let Link save at any time. Aonuma then goes up north, where we see the familiar Tingle floating on a balloon, but he says with a laugh that he’s not too sure if it’s the same Tingle. He then visits Mayor Dotour, who seems to be having some problems.
We get a look at another new feature called the “Case Memo,” which is shown at around the 6:30 mark. This handy new feature to the Bomber’s Notebook adds notes whenever you find out any new information, so you can keep track of your progress and recent happenings, making it easier to help track quests.
Aonuma recently spoke about how Majora’s Mask 3D will have an improve Bomber’s Notebook, as Shigeru Miyamoto mentioned that he felt there were a lot of users who finished the original game without even noticing all the hidden events scattered around town.
Finally, at the 14:20 mark of the video, Aonuma shows us a little secret where you can find a hidden silver Rupee. He says that it’s something he recently found out about, but there are probably those who played the original version that already know about it. When you use the Ocarina to go back in time, the silver Rupee will also respawn, so you’ll get to keep doing that to make more money for gambling and playing mini-games.
At the end of the video, Aonuma says that they didn’t have too much time, so that’s all they were able to put together for this clip. In the next video, he’ll show us more on mini-games.
The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D will launch in North America and Europe on February 13, 2015 for the Nintendo 3DS.
