So recently a Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask 3D remake has been confirmed.
What's my opinions on this?
Honestly, I'm so glad to see it! Majora's Mask was a very beautiful game on the N64 and I can't help but wonder how it will look on the 3DS.
More importantly, I hope they don't give the game too many changes. I haven't played it, but I've seen the changes they made to Ocarina of Time 3D from the original and I didn't really like the idea of it. I think the one that bothers me the most is they made it EASY.
By that, I mean that they turned some of the Shiekah stones into major hint providers. Was there a reason for that?
And the Water Temple. I know I'm in the minority when I say I actually prefer the original one to the 3D one, where they provide hints on where to go to change the water level. I'm sorry, but I found it so unnecessary and pointless. I do, however, applaud the fact they made the Iron Boots a button item because I will admit it was annoying switching from the menus back to the game every time they had to be taken off or put on.
For Majora's Mask 3D, I really hope they keep true to the original game without changing too much. A graphic update is one thing. But I just hope they don't make it easier. Keep the dungeons just the same, please!
But one thing I wouldn't mind seeing as a little addition is some way of tracking down heart pieces, like in Twilight Princess. Majora's Mask has the most heart pieces out of any Zelda game, with a whopping total of 52. Trying to find them all was a side quest that took longer than the whole game itself. You'd need a check list and a lot of back tracking to find them. If Nintendo inserted a method that was like Fanadi's fortune telling where she gave you an image of where a heart piece was, but didn't tell you how to get it, I think it would make Majora's Mask 3D a little more enjoyable.
I will definitely be getting it. I only have Majora's Mask on the Collector's Edition on the Gamecube and it sometimes freezes at random times. I'd love to have it again on my N64, but it would be a bit expensive to get it and an expansion pak. :C They don't come cheap anymore.
