Majora’s Mask is a classic entry in the Zelda series that sees our valiant hero Link thrown into a mysterious new world by the magic of the delightfully creepy Skull Kid. Thanks to the fine folks at Nintendo, gamers all over the Western world will be able to bring their own Skull Kid home when Majora’s Mask 3D comes to the Nintendo 3DS later this year. This limited edition bundle — which will land at retailers with a MSRP of $49.99 — includes a copy of the game, a display box, and a handsome but quite creepy Skull Kid figure that will sure to be a great addition to any Zelda fan’s collection.
Majora’s Mask 3D is a complete overhaul of the classic Nintendo 64 title released over a decade and a half ago this year. Majora’s Mask, similar to the 2011 3D remake of Ocarina of Time, will feature retooled graphics, support for the 3DS’s three-dimensional viewing option, and other new features that have yet to be revealed. Fans old and new alike will be able to experience one of the finest games of its generation for the first time all over again.
More than a decade later, Skull Kid remains one of the series’ most interesting antagonists. His aim is simple: destroy the world by yanking the moon from its orbit and bringing it crashing down on everyone. Skull Kid, a trickster by his very nature, also happens to wear Majora’s Mask which could be influencing him. Series producer Eiji Aounuma has also promised that this time around, Majora’s Mask will be a little easier to follow along with possibly a boss fight or two getting tweaked.
Though we do not currently know when Majora’s Mask 3D will be available, you can be sure that we at APGNation will tell you as soon as the news breaks both here and on Twitter @APGNation.
