The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D

Trapped in an alternate world, Link has just three days to prevent the moon from crashing to the ground and destroying the land of Termina. Although he is able to travel back to the beginning of the first day at any point, this causes everything around him to reset, with only the key items picked up along the way remaining in his possession.

This time manipulation mechanic, combined with the game’s unsettling atmosphere, have always made Majora’s Mask stand out from the other games in the Zelda canon, and on its original release in 2000, it divided fans and critics alike. For this 3DS re-release, a number of previous concerns have been addressed; for example, saving your game has been made easier, and it is now possible to jump forward in time to any hour in the three day cycle.

Those who were unhappy with the low number of dungeons in Majora’s Mask – just four – may not be happy to hear that this has remained unchanged, but we say that that misses the point. This has always been the story of helping the troubled residents of Termina to find peace, and as such, its side quests are unparalleled in the Zelda series.

With updated graphics and New 3DS enhancements for camera controls, Majora’s Mask 3D is unmissable, for veterans and newcomers alike.

One of the greatest, most unique Zelda games you’ll ever play, with some handy improvements from the original.
SCORE: 5/5
