The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D Has Been In Development Since 2011

Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma has been asked many times over the past couple of years whether or not a remake of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask was on the way, and nearly every single time, he’s used the occasion to be a playful tease. That’s because the game’s 3DS remake has been in development for three years.

 

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,” Aonuma revealed on Miiverse. “So although we’ve 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.”

 

Aonuma later stated in his Miiverse post, “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 haven’t 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.”

 

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D will be released Spring 2015.
