The Legend of Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma has announced that a Nintendo 3DS remake of Majora’s Mask is under production, leaving many gamers wondering if the announcement signals progress made by developers in releasing the newest title in the series.
Developers are scheduled to hold a Nintendo Direct event on Wednesday where it is rumored they may release new trailer footage for the game.
Nintendo has released a calendar of upcoming release dates for several of their titles, including The Legend of Zelda, which has been set for a end-of-year 2015 release date. Many gamers are speculating, however, over the possibility of Nintendo further delaying the game’s release date.
The Legend of Zelda game for the Wii U is rumored to include the Master Cycle, a motorcycle used by character Link in the Mario Kart 8 game.
“The development team showed me how the Master Cycle races on the track, and I was overwhelmed by how great it looked,” Aunoma wrote in a MiiVerse blog post, according to the Christian Post.
“It looked so cool that I also want it to appear in games I work on,” Aunoma said.
Wind Waker “decided to pioneer a visual aesthetic that was a radical departure from what everyone knew Zelda to be,” The Story Campaign wrote in a review of The Legend of Zelda.
The popular Wii U game has been described as a “battlefield brawler” in a recent review of the game.
“While most ‘Zelda’ games are sprawling adventures packed with puzzling dungeons, ‘Hyrule Warriors’ is a battlefield brawler where you tear through hundreds of foes,” Fox 43 writes.
“Imagine the war scenes from the “Lord of the Rings” films, but with giant cartoon bombs and ridiculously massive swords.”
