Zelda 3DS: A Link to the Past VS Majora's Mask

A Link to the Past VS Majora's Mask

Coming from an IGN interview, Miyamoto has stated they are choosing between A Link to the Past or Majora's Mask for use in a Zelda 3DS project.

We haven't quite decided yet, whether we're going to do A Link to the Past, because there's also the possibility of doing a remake of Majora's Mask. This is something we've certainly been talking about and doing a little bit of experimenting with, to figure out which way we're going to go.

While a remake of either would be fascinating, a sequel to A Link to the Past would make a lot of people happy. Shigeru Miyamoto went on to discus how the 3DS could be used in combination with the Wii U:

We have so many goals right now. We're always looking at expanding our audience and giving people the opportunity to get their hands on 3DS and see what kind of fun gaming experiences they can have. And now, we're also tasked with pushing the Wii U. So we have lots of good opportunities in terms of thinking about which Zelda game is going to be best for which purpose.

So which would you choose: A Link to the Past Remake, Majora's Mask Remake, or A Link to the Past Sequel?

I don't think we need anymore remakes or re-releases right now. I'd rather just see a totally new game...

Hmm, hadn't even considered a game other than Majora's Mask being made for the 3DS... Definitely and interesting idea, but I'd still ultimately want Majora's Mask.

Majora's Mask. A Link to the Past isn't even a 3D game.

Antoton on 2012-06-13 04:08:00
I'd prefer Majora's Mask remake. While a Link to the Past is certainly a very good game, recreating it in 3D would also mean a lot of geographical and architectural changes so it would look a bit realistic. And knowing die-hard fans, such things will be considered blasphemy.
But I just think that Majora's Mask has a better story (and dungeons) overall. ALTTP just had a lot of dungeons, but imo, with the top-down view of that game, they mostly felt the same.

@Antonon, what makes you think he'd make LttP in 3D (in terms of being a game like Ocarina)? It would obviously still be 2D

Relabim on 2012-06-13 06:43:00
Please, Majora's Mask ! For ALTTP Nintendo can just do a Virtual Console release on the eShop, and 3d wouldn't add much to an SNES game in my opinion.
Majora's Mask 3D must come out !

Do people REALLY want a lazy Majora's Mask 3D instead of an entirely new game, or a remake of a classic SNES game that would surely be a lot more interesting than simply slapping the OoT 3D models on top of Majora's Mask?

I love Majora's Mask, but it has become incredibly overrated as well. It's a fantastic game but by it's very nature it's very repetitive. Having played through it twice already I'm not sure I'd want to do it again.

Plus, given that the 3DS remake of OoT was a lot brighter than the original, I'm sure a lot of dark atmosphere would be lost.

I completely agree with Fizz. Nintendo is better than making remakes of their golden oldies. As for the LTTP sequel: eagle eye perspective and compact models would be appriciated.

Majora's mask.

i want a sequel to both majoras mask and alink to thepast

Velhart on 2012-06-30 17:59:00
I want a remake of Link to the Past with better graphics.
It would be cool if he adds a extra depth to those worlds.

Nir0j on 2012-10-15 13:14:00
Majora's Mask would be the best choice. It's my personal favorite Zelda game. It deserves a lot more attention than it got when it was released for the N64, therefore making a 3ds remake would be an awesome idea!
