GameXplain just uploaded a video showing off one of the more unexpected changes in Majora's Mask 3D, impacting the swimming controls: essentially, swimming in this game will be about half the speed of the original, to make it a lot easier to control, especially in the cramped environments of the Great Bay Temple.

You can still reach the original speed, though: if you use the shield attack with the R-button, you'll move as fast as you did originally, although at the cost...

Tired of planet Earth? Ever wished to just obliterate it by crashing a moon down upon those who don't enjoy playing Zelda games? One fan found a solution by 3D printing his own Majora's Mask... 

A new week means another batch of Majora's Mask 3D footage. The official Japanese Majora's Mask 3D site has featured a lot of exclusive video since the latest Nintendo Direct. Luckily, NinEverything on YouTube has collected this exclusive content and compiled it into a 15 minute video for our viewing pleasure. The video offers more detailed looks at Termina's distinct locations and more of the game's characters...

One thing I love most about games getting remastered is when the company decides to provide updated art and concepts. In this case, Nintendo has updated the official map of Termina and needless to say, it looks stunning. I like how it almost feels like a hand painted map that one would keep on them at all times. While the map itself isn't inherently that useful for navigation purposes, it's still a great overall skyview of the entire world...

It goes without saying that this post contains spoilers. As such, only watch the footage if you are not concerned with spoiling one of the boss fights in the game. Gyorg has seen a few changes made beyond the addition of the eye style weak-point. The biggest change I found in the new footage is that he has a brand new attack after releasing the fish enemies, which also contains what appears to be some chained down spike bombs. Overall, the fight looks more intense than it did before, something I am starting to appreciate as we learn more about specific changes...

In part two of this series counting just how often Link gets the girl at the end of each Zelda game, I'll pick up the editorial right where the first part left off with Wind Waker.  This article will include every other Zelda game in order of release after Wind Waker. The exception will be Hyrule Warriors because it isn't canon (feel free to rage about that in the comments below). 

Majora's Mask 3D will soon arrive in 3DS units across the globe, but there is one important factor to consider: Are these sort of remakes actually better than the original experience? In the case of Majora's Mask 3D, the closest comparison we can make right now is Ocarina of Time 3D. Released in the summer of 2011, Ocarina of Time 3D overhauled the entirety of Ocarina of Time, including an all new Master Quest version and making equipment swapping much more streamlined, thus improving the Water Temple...

With fewer than three weeks until the release of Majora's Mask 3D and the New 3DS XL in North America and Europe, the coveted remake and handheld console are only just out of reach.  While some lucky individuals have been able to try out both at media events, the general public has had little, if any chance to give them a try.  Luckily for our fans in Canada, Nintendo is amending this issue by bringing the two, along with Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, to various Best Buy and Future Shop stories in various cities throughout... 

By now we've all had our say one way or another when it comes to the Majora's Mask New Nintendo 3DS XL fiasco. Some of you might agree with my premise that limited editions are okay, but not giving us a heads up for preorders is wrong. Others still might see how what they did helps Nintendo while hurting us. Still others obviously feel they should just keep pumping them out until they stop selling. Whatever the case may be, I think we can all agree that as fans, we got a bit of a raw deal. In a play on this concept, Kotaku asked their fans to create their own Zelda themed...

Play Asia, one of the retailers that is selling the New Nintendo 3DS Majora's Mask Edition, is not letting customers pre-order the console just yet. I had my order cancelled from Best Buy due to lack of stock, so I spoke with a Play Asia service representative today about their MM3DS date of availability...
