With a complete visual remaster and some minor tweaks to improve gameplay and playability, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask returns to the forefront fifteen years after its initial release on the Nintendo 64, and four years after its predecessor Ocarina of Time’s remake. But does the series’ arguably darkest entry still live up to the hype?
In three days, the moon will fall, and the land of Termina will be no more. The Skull Kid has stolen a dark and powerful ancient mask, and is using it to wreak havoc across the land; the mountains have frozen over, the ocean has become toxic, and the swamplands have been poisoned. As for our young hero, his horse has been stolen and he has been transformed into a Deku Scrub.
The Happy Mask Salesman is right. “You’ve met with a terrible fate, haven’t you?”
