The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask is the sixth game in the series. It was developed by Nintendo Entertainment Analysis and Development and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64 video game console. It was released in Japan on April 27, 2000, in North America on October 26, 2000, and in Europe on November 17, 2000. The game sold about 314,000 copies during its first week of sales in Japan and went on to sell about three million copies total.
It is the second game in the series to have 3D graphics, the first being Ocarina of Time. Majora's Mask features a broader and darker story as well as deeper gameplay then Ocarina of Time. In this game Link is placed in the land of Termina, other then Hyrule. A mysterious mask-wearing imp know as the Skull Kid persuaded the moon to abandon its orbit and crash into Termina. Link has to use time travel to repeatedly live the three days prior to the crash in an attempt to prevent it.
The plot is centered around a repeatedly played three-day cycle and the use of masks, some of which are required and some that are not. A variety of songs also control the flow of time and open passages to the four Temples. Unlike Ocarina of Time 3D though, Majora's Mask requires the use of the Expansion Pack, which allows for a larger number of on-screen characters and improved graphics. Overall, Majora's Mask was generally received well by critics, who cited the graphics improvements as well as a deeper and darker storyline.
Currently the game has been released on the following formats: N64 (2000) and GCN (2003 CE).
