“Dawn of the First Day. 72 Hours Remain.” Can be recognized as some of the most famous words in The Legends of Zelda franchise. Why? It’s what marks the first day in the most challenging experience Link will find himself facing as a moon is headed to crash into Hyrule. It also has become a trademark saying with the preparation of The Legends of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D, which is set to launch tonight at midnight across North America. Launching officially on February 13th, fans can obtain both the game as well as the New Nintendo 3DS XL systems to find themselves experiencing the smoothest and most engrossing gaming experience to enter Nintendo history since Ocarina of Time.
According to Nintendo, players who purchase the game and play it on the New Nintendo 3DS XL will get to experience some exclusive features that will not be available outside of this handheld. The game will get to experience the game through camera moving with the newly added C Stick while also experiencing the game with Nintendo’s newly implemented face-tracking 3D technology that the new model of 3DS family will utilize. This will allow fans to experience the game in its most sincere 3D experience ever.
“There’s a reason The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is consistently mentioned as a favorite entry in The Legend of Zelda series by many,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “With the launch of this new enhanced version and New Nintendo 3DS XL on the same day, a whole new generation of fans can experience the fantastic adventure for the first time on an equally fantastic portable system.”
For those who have never experienced one of the greatest games from The Legends of Zelda franchise, the game will take place over the span of three days, which will allow fans to attempt saving the world of Termina from that devious and terrifying moon as it approaches the planet with each tick of a clock. As link races against the clock and works to manipulate time itself so that he can solve puzzles, collect treasures, fight down powerful foes, and slay powerful bosses within 72 hours. So, how does our little pointy eared friend do it? Using songs that he performs on his Ocarina.
Will you have what it takes to track events through Bomber’s Notebook, use more than 20 unique masks, and help save Termina with the assistance such as the Deku, Goron, and even the Zora masks? Find out tomorrow exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS family.
Both The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D game and the New Nintendo 3DS XL system will launch on Feb. 13 at suggested retail prices of $39.99 and $199.99, respectively. The game can also be played on Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL and Nintendo 2DS systems.
