Majora's Mask 3DS, More Hyrule Warriors Characters Arriving Feb.

The 3DS remake of the classic Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask will be available the same day as a new DLC pack for Hyrule Warriors.

Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask on 3DS launches in North America on Feb. 13, Nintendo announced in today's Nintendo Direct. A special edition including a Skull Kid figurine is also available.

On Feb 5, a batch of new Hyrule Warriors characters will launch. Tingle and Young Link are a part of a Majora's Mask DLC pack, which also appears to include three more mystery costumes.

Tingle, who clearly should have been in Hyrule Warriors from the start, attacks with a wallet of rupees, his balloon, and his rad dance moves. Young Link uses his Kokiri sword, but he can also put on the Fierce Deity's mask to transform and unleash stronger attacks.

Nintendo also noted there will be a special Majora's Mask-themed New Nintendo 3DS XL available Feb. 13, the launch date of both Majora's Mask 3DS and the New Nintendo 3DS. It does not include a copy of the game and already appears to be sold out at GameStop online.

Three more mystery characters? Fierce Deity Link, Majora's Wrath, and the Skull Kid. Calling it now.

All that said... Ooh! My favourite Zelda game is getting a remake! Whoop!

Sure would have been nice to have that Skull Kid figure with Majora's Mask 3DS. Too bad US retailers and Nintendo of America f*cked that up royally, and now the only chance of ever getting that would be to pay between $150-$2000 for a damn preorder. >.>

Happy for the release date at least.

It's a shame I'll never get a Skull Kid...
I'll still buy the game, but it woudld've been nice to have a Skull Kid...

Also Tingle in Hyrule Warriors? I await the memes.

3 mysterious new characters huh?
I'm calling it now, Goron, Zora, and Deku scrub.

You guys do know it's not three mystery characters, but 3 mystery COSTUMES, right? Based on the silhouettes shown during the direct I'm pretty sure one is a Skull Kid costumes, but for who I don't know. I'm also not sure what the other two costumes would be.

Not a Majora's Mask fan so I'm not super excited about this, but I am curious to see if Nintendo continues the trend of moronically limited runs of popular games for no fucking reason.

...Why yes I am angry that Pikmin 3 is $100 on Amazon, how did you guess?

Holy hell, that Tingle face is horrifying.

I do like the look of the Majora's Mask 3DS XL though. A good price, and I might bite. However, since GAME'll probably have it exclusively here, that's a long shot.

"I want to play as Tingle"

-No one, ever.

But I don't know, maybe will work as a joke character. That one you pick to give a quick giggle.

He's popular in Japan IIRC. Which is probably why he's being turned into a character for Hyrule Warriors.

It's hit $100 already? A month ago it was under $80. I guess some Pikmin fans got a Wii U for Christmas.

I'm glad I found the one of the last used copies in my area. Thanks, Big N, for not utilizing the inexpensiveness of disc manufacturing to ensure later Wii owners could get a year old game without paying nearly double the cost.

OT: I'm actually exciting for some Majora DLC in Hyrule Warriors, if I cared enough to drop $50 on a Dynasty Warriors clone. At least it will be on the eShop when I find a copy of HW for $20 or less.

Good times; I wonder if the Fierce Deity is gonna be a unique mechanic or his Focus Spirit.

I'd bet on it being his strong attack, kind of like Zelda's light orbs.

Oh, and if you're wondering about the Majora's Mask 3ds that was announced today, it is also already sold out.

Sold out and already being sold on Ebay by scalpers for a ridiculous sum of money. I feel this could have been avoided if they just released the interchangable plate model in NTSC regions as well, and made special edition plates for that. But then again, that would cut into them making millions of different "limited edition" models of the N3DS XL for them to sell to others, just like how they did for the regular 3DS and 3DS XL. Seriously, Nintendo released so many special edition 3DS' that they made the Xbox 360 look conservative when it comes to console redesigns and special editions. :/

And Now I need to get Hyrule Warriors, I'm planning to get the new3DSxl Zelda edition anyway, it's expensive being a gamer :P

Oh good. Tingle. I didn't want to play as Skull Kid or anything.
