A Possible Majora's Mask Remake?

Should Nintendo remake Majora's Mask? Are they even planning on doing it? Let's see what Eiji Aonuma says, or laughs about.

In a recent interview with Nintendo's Eiji Aonuma and IGN, they discussed a possible remake of the famous Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. Since The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was remade onto the Nintendo 3DS, fans have been asking for more, specifically Majora's Mask. Just imagine, playing this highly time-intensive game on the 3DS, in 3D.

What happened at the interview

Eiji Aonuma kept his response very vague within the IGN interview. The IGN representative told Aonuma that fans had been asking for the remake, and his response was with laughter. He even told IGN to include the fact he laughed into the article.

“Please write that I laughed, don’t make it sound like I laughed because I was troubled or inconvenienced or put out. I don’t want them to read anything into it. But if you want to say that I laughed, I think that would be a good answer."

Personally, I love his response about the possible remake. He keeps an air of mystery by not giving a full answer if the remake is an idea at Nintendo, or if we should expect it maybe in Holiday Season 2015. When the IGN representative asked Aonuma how fans should respond to his laughter, he stated:

“It’s really up to them. If they want to interpret my laughter as, ‘yeah, we’re making it’ or ‘no, we’re not,’ I guess that’s really up to them.”

A trip down memory lane

For those who remember, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask was made for the Nintendo 64, back in 2000. Of course it also became available on the GameCube a few years later through the Zelda collector's edition disk. But now, it's available on the Wii Virtual Console since 2009. If they do remake Majora's Mask, just imagine carrying that around in your pocket, going out on vacation or on long car rides. Not to mention, having it remade with better graphics and in 3D would make it much more intense, in a good way.

What happening at Nintendo?

Recently at Nintendo, Miyamoto discussed a possible sequel to either Majora's Mask, or A Link to the Past. If we are to ever expect these sequels, we won't be getting them for a while since Nintendo is very busy with their current Zelda games. Coming out in November is A Link Between Worlds, so we'll have to wait awhile for these possible sequels, if we get them at all.

So what do you guys think? I'm a huge Zelda fan (or obsessed gamer), and would probably giggle with glee if Majora's Mask was remade. Would you buy it? The case below is a fake image, since it hasn't been remade, but wouldn't you just got nuts for it?

The image above is fake, but put in for a hopeful future.
