Nintendo’s Eiji Aonuma has confirmed that a 3D remake of Majora’s Mask is indeed possible.
In an interview with Zeldainformer, Aonuma expressed that a remake of the title was not only a possibility, but that if fans were eager enough to see the game – Nintendo would be interested in making it. Not without issues though, Aonuma also confirmed that if Nintendo went ahead with the remake, there’s certainly some slight changes to be expected:
It’s been 13 years since Ocarina of Time was originally released, and one of the big things that we made this remake possible was that there was an outpour of emotions from people who said they would like to see this game done. We said we could do it in 3D, so we did. I think certainly if there was a similar output of emotion and clamor from fans for a remake of Majora’s Mask, it wouldn’t be an utter impossibility.
Thinking on it now, having a handheld Majora’s Mask where you could kind of just set things down on your own time – close it, set it aside and come back to it later – might be a game play element some fans will actually take to and might really appreciate. Especially considering how you really had to rush through the original game, in a sense.
