That game featured a devilish Moon, hanging ominously in the sky, that drew closer as the day the world would end drew near, a day when a climactic crushing of the town and all of it’s inhabitants by the evil above would take place. As the day of the Moon’s collapse grew closer in the game, the time to the end of the world continued to tick via a countdown clock, as Link, the “Hero of Time”, relived the same three days endlessly repeating themselves until you unlocked the mystery to saving the world of Termina from impending doom. It was a game that none who played it forgot.
Many think that Majora’s Mask is one of the most ingenious, devious games ever made. It featured a haunting atmosphere, where the inhabitants go more mad as the day of their death draws closer; and an unsettling aesthetic as you pieced clues together while reliving the same events over and over again, each time discovering a new twist as you tempted fate.
Now there is a mysterious Majora’s Mask website called “Terrible Fate”, featuring the eyes of Skull Kid wearing Majora’s Mask, a countdown to the end of the world tomorrow, and unsettling, haunting remixes of the music of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. Is this just a fan project? (It links to a fan’s remix album Facebook page) or is this viral promotion for the highly anticipated official announcement of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D, which has for a year now been the most highly requested Nintendo 3DS game wanted by fans (the game originally was released in 2000 for Nintendo 64)?
We’ll find out soon. Check the site out yourself and stand in awe, as the clock continues to tick to 12-21-12… and those eyes pierce your soul.
I should also mention that a supposed tweet from Nintendo of America is making the rounds, which hints at Majora’s Mask 3D’s announcement on the 21st; however it is probably a fake. Even if it was though, will all of this hoopla compel Nintendo to announce the game, regardless of whether they planned to or not? We’ll have to wait to see.
The tweet read: “Nintendo of America – Hey Zelda fans! On the dawn of the final day, a familiar game will be announced for Nintendo 3DS! Look for it this Friday!”
