Does it play on the old 3DS?

I never played this game so it's a very good (and very predictable) news.

That footage was in the U.S. Direct, as well. It's shown when Iwata is talking about the game after the trailer is shown. You can see for yourself by watching the Direct on Nintendo's channel at YouTube (which is what I just did).
I think that gif has different footage. Just checked the US one myself.

YES! My favorite all time Zelda game is finally getting a remake! Can't wait to 100% this again! Although I wonder if there are any new things in this remake...

What are you basing this on? We haven't actually heard any ingame music yet. We had one new track and the majora's mask battle theme that could have been taken from the original.

We have no idea what it will sound like yet

Yes, it's for the old 3DS (and of course the New 3DS as well).

And unless GAF has been full of shit, I've seen some post stating it's 60fps on the New 3DS and 30fps (like OOT) on the old 3DS. Again, I don't know if this is true yet.

the trailer and what they've done in the past with OoT. To expect big changes would be silly. If they had updated music to show off, the announcement trailer would be the place to do it

Oh my god guys, the atmosphere! This is just amazing. I had a fear they would made the remake more light hearted and less scary but the opposite is thank god the case, they increased the atmosphere! Looks so much better than bland N64 original.

I don't recall a new song. The drums in the opening is on the original Majora's soundtrack.

Thats not the real issue with redesigning the dungeons - its the fact that the four dungeons are ridiculously complex. I can see absolutely no way they could redesign Snowhead, Great Bay or Stone Tower without literally ripping out everything and starting from scratch.
I think you're overstating the complexity of the dungeons and the MQ remixes were more about gimmicks that preyed upon your expectations than straight up new dungeons anyway


But it's not going to happen either way.

Shit is the hardware different so brutal to allow for something like this? It makes me regret getting the old model even more (not that I actually care for the 30/60fps difference to be honest, I just don't like this model of updating consoles like this without any warning).

It's all speculation so far. No confirmation of framerate at all.

The game looks super rough from the US footage... pretty much the same as the N64 version at parts.

3DS version


N64 version:

zelda games have sold well on the 3ds, this game was obvious with this fact in mind and it's been teased in iwata asks many times.

3DS version
they managed to make the left guy even uglier lol

I'm super excited about this, it's one of my top 3 favorite games. Been waiting for it ever since they released OoT 3D.

Is this confirmed? Will it be like the Link Between Worlds version?
Not confirmed but they said to come back tomorrow on Twitter regarding a question about when to pre-order. I'd hazard a guess and say it'll be GAME and Nintendo UK Store exclusive in the UK and available at the same shops Bayonetta 2 First Print edition was available across Europe.

Pretty much every aspect is improved/updated in terms of polygons, from character models to background objects.

Besides, this room was never much to talk about in the first place.

I definitely agree. Though the overall experience was less for me than OOT (my all-time favourite) with some flaws, it nonetheless has some aspects I consider better than OOT. Definitely worth a try for those who haven't yet.
It really is better in different regards than OOT. They are both truly unique games. Majora's Mask really just has such a cool feel going for it and it feels much different than OOT. One is a big epic adventure. The other is this sort of oddball doomed world you are trying to fix.

No way. The music is great, don't change it. Should re-releases of Super Mario Bros be orchestrated as well? There are no problems with the music in Majora and it would lose something for me if they changed it.

3DS version


N64 version:
The lack of anti aliasing for 3DS games makes this look much worse than it should. I can't wait to play Majora's Mask 3D in HD ten years from now on a 3DS emulator.
