Happy birthday to Majora's Mask! The popular sequel to Ocarina of Time turned 15 today. The N64 title was first released on April 27, 2000, just two years after Ocarina of Time...  

Update: It looks to be in-store only at this point. Check your local store for availability. 

Just when we think it's gone for good, the Majora's Mask New 3DS pops back up again! The elusive system is currently available at Best Buy's website, with multiple users on Reddit reporting that they have been able to snag one from in-store as well.  At the time of this writing, the system still appears to be in stock on the website, but if it sells out there...

It turns out that Majora's Mask 3D is a word wide sales success. While the game itself was released in the middle of February world wide, it is still continuing to sell extremely well in the weeks and now months since. While we all knew it was selling really well locally here in the United States, we now know that it's selling just as well in Europe, as Majora's Mask 3D has achieved the Gold BIU Sales Award in Germany for selling over 100,000 units. There are two award tiers higher than gold, with platinum meaning 200k while black translates to 500k. Still, for the month...

This is an odd turn of events. Days ago news broke that people were streetpassing someone at the Zelda symphony in Germany that had recently played Twilight Princess 3D. There were multiple phone pics and even a video when someone streetpassed this person a second time around, proving that this was indeed happening. As it turned out however, the person who supposedly was playing that game merely modified his system to get it to...

Update: photo discovered on the timeline of twitter user ChrisX930, a friend of the original poster, three days earlier shows that the arrival of Twilight Princess 3D was merely a hack. 

Is Twilight Princess 3D happening? We've had it rumored in the past but haven't really heard anything since... until now. It appears folks at a recent Zelda Symphony performance streetpassed someone playing Twilight Princess 3D - presumably someone that works for Nintendo at the event. We have multiple pictures taken of the streetpass seemingly confirming it. Obviously this could be a big ruse, but we have reputable people mentioning it, such as the folks behind Nintendo Domination. So we can't be 100% certain, but this is the biggest suggestion we've had that this is happening...

Most of us may not have a Japanese Nintendo 3DS, but that doesn't mean we can't drool over the new Zelda pins available in the Badge Center app on the 3DS eShop! This latest set is packed full of characters, enemies, items, and terrain from the original Legend of Zelda on NES...

Last week I discussed the terrible narrative of Majora’s Mask, and today we’re taking a look at its terrible gameplay. Majora’s Mask went to great lengths to differentiate itself from other games in the Zelda franchise when it was released in 2000, but there’s a wide gap between simply standing out and successfully innovating.

While some of Majora’s Mask’s gameplay delivered fresh and rewarding experiences, it also served up many stale slogs of repetition, unpolished game mechanics, and major features that were undercooked. Let’s start with a look at one of the worst game mechanics in Majora’s Mask: the way it handles saving game progress...

Majora's Mask 3D is assuredly going to move more than a million units here in North America, as Nintendo is reporting 184,000 sales for the game last month with 730,000 sold all together. World Wide sales are likely around 2 million right now, though we can't confirm the international figures just yet. Either way, this game certainly has the long term potential of outselling Ocarina of Time 3D assuming it can find a consistent sales figure month to month down the line...

Nintendo and Viz Media are launching the official A Link to the Past graphic novel as written by Shotaro Ishinomori. It was first released as a series of of "comics" in Nintendo Power Magazine, but later collected to create this graphic novel. The Nintendo World Store has decided to host a launch party for the novel, which releases on May 1st. The party will include light refreshments, a cake cutting ceremony, a Q and A session with someone from Viz Media (who compiled the graphic novel), and it will feature a gallery of color prints from the novel itself...

Fans holding off on purchasing the 3D remake of Majora's Mask may now want to open their wallets. The popular Ocarina of Time sequel has just gone through a price drop on Amazon and Best Buy...
