Iwata Asks Is Back, And Kicks Off With Majora’s Mask 3D

Recommended Videos

After a long hiatus, Nintendo’s popular “Iwata Asks” series of interviews is back, and they’re kicking it off with The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D. Before moving on to the interview itself, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata touches upon the interview series’ hiatus. Here’s his brief message:


Hello everyone, this is Satoru Iwata of Nintendo.


Since we weren’t able to reveal any new Iwata Asks interviews at all last year, it’s really been a while to be able to share with you a new interview.


Last year I fell ill and had undergone surgery. Many of you were probably wondering if my illness was the reason for us not revealing any new Iwata Asks. But to be honest, I’ve been thinking about taking a break from it so I could recharge, even before I found out about my condition.


From about the end of last year I started thinking about bringing it back up on the table again, and was wondering what would be the right title to bring it back with. It was at that time when I saw people’s strong reactions to our announcement that we’re making a remake to The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. I was surprised by those reactions, but now I knew what that title would be.


I hope we can do a good job in trying to convey even a portion of the secrets of a game that deeply struck so many people’s hearts. It has become quite a lengthy interview, but I hope you’ll follow through to the very end.
