After what seems like a lifetime of waiting, Nintendo has finally revealed plans to release an updated version of the darker Zelda classic.
During today’s Nintendo Direct, Nintendo dropped one of the biggest bombs it could have for legions of The Legend of Zelda fans across the globe. It’s finally been confirmed that The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, like the terrifying Moon in the game, is hurtling toward us for a spring 2015 release.
The decidedly dark and moody follow-up to the seminal Nintendo 64 classic The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time has been a release fans of the franchise have been clamoring for ever since Ocarina of Time dropped for the 3D handheld, and while it’s been hinted at here and there, the fans had yet to receive any concrete word from Nintendo that they would see a similar release for the more mature entry in the long-running Legend of Zelda mythos.
Details given out during Nintendo Direct were quite scant save for the announcement itself, but given the track record for the 3DS iteration of Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask will most likely see a host of fixes and aesthetic improvements as well as refined controls for the handheld. There was no price given, but it will likely run $40, as is par for the course for most 3DS titles.
All that’s left now is the waiting, which Zelda fans have been doing for quite some time now anyway, so a few more months shouldn’t be too much of a stretch, right?
