The other day I saw a tweet talking about this HD remake port of Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask that would be on the Nintendo Switch and I thought, “Wow I want this badly. Why hasn’t it happened yet?”
I'd rather have Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword.
Over this? Crazy You'd only get one good game out of those two...Twilight Princess Here you get two amazing Zelda games.
Skyward Sword is a good game. I wouldn't say it's as good as OoT or MM, but it's definitely a good game.
The thing is, I have both those games on my N64, GameCube and 3DS’s. I want a non-waggle version of TP and SS in HD.
They should totally do this and then after they should do a Hero of Winds collection Wind Waker Phantom Hourglass Spirit Trakcs
Hero of Winds 😆 🚶🏻♂️💨 ;
Wind Waker must happen on the Switch. Either a remaster (of a remaster on the Wii U) or an entirely new sequel.
a remaster of the remaster? :P
Got it in HD on PC before it was taken down. Muhhuhaaa ha ha take that take that
It's surprising how good some N64 games actually look, just with the added resolution. Some of those texture packs though.
It truly is Thats why like emulators dolphin is my favorite one it allows you to change native rez or even gove your game the cel shaded look.I played NBA streets vol 3 and 2 like that and also blitz!!!!
Majora's Mask is my favorite of the series. Love the dark tone. I've been saying for a while that they would do well if they took the remasters for the 3DS, up-res'd them, added in better lighting, and then threw them on the Switch. Would be a day 1 purchase for me.
Make this a reality, Nintendo. I have been playing Majora Mask on the 3DS recently for the first time and wow, what a great game. The atmosphere in that game is top notch.
They could just remaster the 3ds versions in HD for a quick cash grab, I would buy them. But I hope they use the correct color palette, a darker one like the N4 versions. Not that overly bright one from the 3ds. It kind of ruins the atmosphere.
The direction and cinematography in the cutscenes were very poor compared to the originals as well. For example, the scene where Zelda and Impa are escaping the castle from Ganondorf. In the original, the first thing it cuts to is an image of Zelda's face, fear stricken and worried. It tells a story. In the 3DS version, you just look at part of a horse's head bobbing in and out of view. The game itself looked great, but it just doesn't feel like the same experience when you play. Ocarina of Time is a heavy game and I feel like much of that was lost in the 3DS version.
And don't get me started with the super exaggerated idle animations the characters have. I enjoyed the 3ds versions of the games but things like that took me out of the experience, and I keep going back to play the original versions whenever I want to replay OOT or MM.
