Ever since the release of The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD for the Wii U last year, many fans have been clamoring for an HD remake of Majora’s Mask. We know Nintendo is fond of giving the HD treatment to older Zelda titles, as both Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker HD have gotten the remake treatment. Now more than ever, Nintendo continues to hint that a Majora’s Mask HD remake is on the way. Check out this question from the most recent issue of Game Informer magazine, where A Link Between Worlds designer Hiromasa Shikata discusses the game:
GI: “We found Majora’s Mask and another subtle reference to Link’s Nintendo 64 adventure in Ravio’s Journal. Are there any other Majora’s Mask references that we missed?”
Shikata: “[Having Majora's Mask in Link's house] was a special request from Aonuma’s production team. Now why would they ask us to do that?”
Why indeed? Is Aonuma gearing up for a Majora’s Mask HD remake this year to tide fans over while we wait for the Zelda Wii U reveal? In an interview as recent as October of last year, Eiji Aonuma confirmed that the HD remake of Wind Waker only took the company six months to produce.
How would you like to see this during the next Nintendo Direct?
