Ever since The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D was released for the Nintendo 3DS in 2011, fans have been begging Nintendo to remake its sequel, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, on the 3DS as well. Since then, multiple subtle hints have popped up for a potential remake.
Last October, for example, famed Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma said Majora’s Mask for 3DS was not forgotten. Another reference was made in the most recent 3DS Zelda title, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. The indications are there, and only fuel hope that a Majora’s Mask remake would eventually become a reality. Nintendo @ E3 2014 has come and gone, and Nintendo didn’t make any announcements that fans would be returning to the land of Termina in 3D. But all hope is not lost.
Grezzo, the developer who worked on Ocarina of Time 3D, has recently posted new job listings on their website — one for a programmer, another for a planner — and the “urgent” positions could point toward an inevitable remake of Majora’s Mask. Grezzo’s job listings are in Japanese, but someone was able to translate them. Interestingly, the title for the second job listing states, “Would you like to make a Legend with us”? The mere mention of the word “legend” makes one automatically think of The Legend of Zelda, considering Grezzo’s past involvement with the series.
Of course, we don’t know for sure if Grezzo is hiring for a Zelda game, but if they are, a Majora’s Mask remake seems most likely. The original Majora’s Mask on the Nintendo 64 used a lot of the same development assets as Ocarina of Time, so that means Grezzo would be able to use a good number of the assets from Ocarina of Time 3D when creating Majora’s Mask 3D.
Would you like to see Grezzo release Majora’s Mask on the 3DS?
