Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3DS Remake Looks Better Than Ever

Devoted fans won’t have to wait much longer for The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D, the remake is coming on February 13. But for a lot of us who haven’t seen or played this cult hit since its 2000 release, the jump in visual quality is quite a surprise. Clock Town and Termina field have a lived in look and feel that wasn't possible in the early era of 3D polygons.

IGN has put together a side-by-side comparison of the original Zelda: Majora's Mask (running on Wii Virtual Console) and the Nintendo 3DS remake. Take a close look at the video and tell us what you think of the new look in the comments.

The story is too old to be commented.

I really like the bleak setting of the original way more. The new one is just way too colourful. The moon looks darker in the original and more creepier.

If I agree I will receive many disagrees but I have same thoughts like you. I admit that the new remake has better graphics but its really colourful, old one is "darker"...

Summons751415d ago

I disagree, the new colorful palette contrasts the darkness of the themes and story making it not only nice to look at but even darker than the original. The moon still looks as creepy.

I feel that the moon looks creepier in the 3ds game

Though I see where you're coming from, I respectfully disagree. I feel that the more colorful, cheerful look actually plays a large part in adding to the doom and gloom.

If we were to look at it from in-universe, The clock town/settlements weren't constructed with this impending disaster in mind; Clock Town is preparing for a large festival after all. The time is supposed to be happy and cheerful but there is this ubiquitous dread that slowly but surely engulfs the minds of the people and world.

I feel that the world is supposed to look cheerful, but there is that twinge of loss, fear, and desperation that is supposed to cause creepiness. It is a creepiness that supersedes a game world style, as it rests in the back of your mind, slowly tugging at your subconscious.

While you make a very excellent point, maybe i just love the nostalgic creepy feel of the original much more. And i really should be more happy than that because at least Nintendo Remake their games unlike other companies that we have begged years to remake one with the same damn gameplay. (Looking at you SquareEnix/Capcom)

I love how the 3DS version looks, especially the eerie redness of Termina Field. But I'm not a fan of the moon's new design. It's wider nose and big eyes make it look kinda goofy imo.

That it does. Majora's Mask in 3D is a dream come true.

I think it looks great, in terms of textures, colors, and polygon. I really wish it had been a Wii U HD re-release, instead of the 3DS. I don't want to play it on the go; I want to take my time on it looking at a big screen.

That's just me, though.
