I was exciting to hear about the news for sure!  :mrpurple:

Here is what we know so far about the new version:

- Thought original was too difficult.
- They made sure to make the game easier for this remake.
- Many of the difficult things occurring throughout the day are going to be made more obvious.
- Big hint system.
- Altered a boss (likely made it easier).
- Gameplay differences for New 3DS owners.

It kind of seems like it will be a watered down version though. :-S
Yeah, it's about time Majora's Mask get a 3DS version. It was only a matter of time. :mrred:

As for the facts about the upcoming version:

- Agree. Sometimes the time limit can be a bit too much.
- Agree, see above point.
- Not sure what you mean by that. Examples?
- Hint system? Okay, that's watering it down a bit....
- They did? Which boss? Please tell me it's that ghastly, ungodly Gyorg. That boss is way impossible. O_O
- Haven't played many 3DS games, so no comment there.

I have a feeling it's gonna be watered down too. Not like I ever have difficulty with the game anyways.

Is it sad that I haven't played any 3D Zelda games? For some reason, I just can't be bothered. :o
You need to play them. There's only two games, so your work would be cut out for you.

Sorry for the confusion about that list I posted earlier, but all those bullet points were some changes that the producers were making to the 3DS version of MM. The producers thought that the original game was too hard, so they are going to basically water it down for the 3DS version. Which is a load of crap because they are trying to please the casual gamers. :roll:

And PP319, you should try the 3D Zelda games one day.
Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask are the best of the best in the series.
Wind Waker was crap IMO, but other people seem to enjoy it.
Twilight Princess was solid with a good story, but it kind of felt like OoT a little too much.
Skyward Sword was good too.

You should try Ocarina of Time at least. ;)

Oh. I didn't know. But yeah, making a game too easy really isn't going to do anyone any good. And the game isn't going to come out until June anyways. It will be interested to see it on 3DS mode though.

Also, what is OOT like in 3DS mode? Have you played that yet?

OoT on 3DS is awesome. The graphics and overworld look beautiful, and there is no more pointy character models or 2D fences. Plus, areas like Market Town are now fully rendered and are not on a "fixed camera". It also comes with Master Quest too, which is a unique challenge. ;) It was definitely worth getting IMO. :mrred:

It comes with Master Quest too, a game I still haven't played? Awesome. And now I want to play the 3DS version. :lol: It really does seem awesome. Good to know the graphics have improved too. I heard they've also improved the Water Temple, by making Iron Boots an item. Instead of having to change your boots every two seconds. O_O

Also, here's another question I've been meaning to ask. To those of you who play the 3D Zelda games, what do you name your characters? Most people may name their character "Link," which to me just sounds a little boring. But what nicknames do you give your characters? Just wondering. ;)

On all of my first playthroughs for each game, I always use my name for Link. The only exception is when I first played Skyward Sword, I actually used Link's name from the start. And on my subsequent playthroughs, I always name him Link just because I am use too. In Twilight Princess, you can also name the horse that Link rides on. I named the horse "Epona" even though she is not meant to be her.

Other than that, I have used expletive names for Link in OoT and MM just for the laughs. My favorite time was when I named him "Nabooru". Only because I wanted to see her say "Nabooru? What kind of name is that?!" when you first meet her. :lol:

Oh yeah, you can even name your character expletives. Come to think of it, someone did that once and I posted it in this thread. They literally named their character "FUCK." If I ever get to playing the games again, I might actually do that. :lol: Also, regarding naming Epona in Twilight Princess, someone on another forum named Epona "my cunt." No really, that's what her name was. And whenever Epona's name was mentioned in Twilight Princess, the dialogue would go like this:

"I washed my cunt for you."
"You're riding my cunt too hard."

I know it's stupid to name your character that, but it's just hilarious. :lol: Me? I have the habit of using girly names like "Diva" for Link's name. Though on my last playthrough, I named him "Bananas." I guess it has a better ring to it than clearly unfitting girly names.

EDIT: To include person who named their character FUCK.

Zelda, the... live action TV show?!?!

Quote
“The Legend of Zelda,” one of the most popular videogame series of all time, is in the works as a television show at Netflix.

The video streaming service is in the early stages of developing a live action series based on “Zelda,” about an ordinary boy named Link who must rescue a princess named Zelda and save a fantasy world called Hyrule, said a person familiar with the matter. As it seeks writers to work on the show, Netflix is describing it as “Game of Thrones” for a family audience, this person said.

The “Zelda” games have traditionally included swords and sorcery, like “Game of Thrones” or “Lord of the Rings,” but typically with a more light-hearted, kid-friendly tone.

Netflix is said to be working closely with Nintendo, the Japanese game developer that has made about 20 “The Legend of Zelda” games since the original, which was released in the U.S. in 1987.

Nintendo is very protective of its intellectual property and has allowed few adaptations over the years. An animated “Legend of Zelda” series ran for just one season in 1989. A 1993 movie based on Nintendo’s “Super Mario Bros.” was an infamous bomb.

As it is still seeking a writer to work on the series, Netflix has a long road to travel before a “Legend of Zelda” series actually becomes a reality. It’s also possible that Netflix or Nintendo will kill the project before it gets off the ground.

A Netflix spokeswoman declined to comment. A Nintendo spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Well, this certainly was unexpected. Definitely interested to see how this ends up.

If you have seen all 120 episodes of Legends, copy and paste this into your signature for all to see.

Yeah, I heard about that. I don't know how that's gonna go honestly. Truth be told, I really don't have high hopes for it.

You know, Legend of Zelda would make an interesting plot for a TV show. Only on paper though. They have tried both cartoons and live action shows for other video games in the past (Resident Evil, Mario), and they weren't received too well. But Netflix is actually pretty respectable when it comes to their own TV shows. Hemlock Grove and Orange is the New Black are two successful Netflix original shows. I would give it a try, but I don't have high hope though. Zelda is just better as a videogame. I mean I don't even want to see how they will make the Zoras or Gorons. :shock:

I'd give it a try too. But the main problem is butchering it, which is the main thing I'm afraid of. Oh well, we're just gonna have to wait and see.

So has anyone played the newly released Majora's Mask 3DS? I haven't, because I don't own a 3DS. But for anyone that has, what's it like?

Not yet, but I do plan on getting it before spring time. I do like the updated look for the game though.   :grin: Judging from what I read though, they made the game "easier" for the casual fans. Mostly, they changed the way the timer works to make it easier. Which I don't agree with them doing because the clock is not that hard to manage if you know what you are doing. On the other hand though, it looks like they made the boss fights more challenging too. I love MM though and I will definitely check out the 3DS one. OoT3DS was a solid game, and I expect this one to be too. ;)

Yeah, I heard there was a lot of hand holding and the game was made a little too easy for the casual fans. I heard they changed the timer too, which seems like a pointless thing to do. I mean, the timer is the most important part of the game after all. And good for them for updating the graphics too, just like they did for OOT 3D. It definitely makes the game look a lot less outdated. Despite the casualness in the game, I'm sure it will be a solid game. And just as popular as OOT 3D was. ;)
