In case you don’t speak Portuguese that’s the general idea that I gathered from the article. The full interview will be up later, but for now all we have is this small teaser, which happens to be about something that’s very important to me.
The magazine asked Eiji Aonuma about Majora’s Mask 3D, and he responded “It’s something I’m asked a lot and can assure you that I’ve talked to Miyamoto about it, but at the moment nothing is confirmed yet.” going on to say that they don’t feel it’s appropriate to release two remakes in a row, and that there will be “an original game first and after that, only time will tell. “
It’s good to know they’re still discussing it and taking the discussion seriously, although this means we’ll probably have several years to wait even if they do decide to remake it. It seems like a mistake to sit on a half-finished game for that long when they could be selling it and making money off it, but I do understand why they’d be worried about selling two Zelda remakes one after the other. However, once they announce their new Zelda for 3DS, I think they could easily release Majora’s Mask 3D while we wait for the new game to be developed and they’d not face any questions from their Zelda fans. (More Zelda is better, right guys?)
One thing this does put to rest is any lingering doubts of a new Zelda coming to the 3DS. What’s more is, apparently, it’s not going to follow after the console style of Ocarina of Time 3D but instead return to the style of the DS games. How much it will have in common with them (IE controls, use of the mic, etc) remains to be confirmed, but we can add it to what we know about the 3D having “meaning” for the game.
Disclaimor: I don’t speak Portuguese and I don’t know this e-magazine or how they’d get an interview with Eiji Aonuma. They may have made this all up, but I find that rather unlikely and I’m telling you what I found because if it’s true, it should be shared. Belief or disbelief rests with you.
