Game News: Majora’s Mask Finally Washes Up On North American Shores, Marks the Virtual Console’s 300th Release

It’s been an overly long wait for American Gamers to finally get their hands on the Virtual Console release of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, possibly the most under appreciated Zelda title aside from Windwaker. This gem originally hit store shelves for the Nintendo 64 way back in 2000 and was one of the last hurrah’s for the 64 cartridge king. Because it released so late in the system’s life, sadly, many gamers failed to pick up a copy, depriving themselves of one of the greatest adventures of all time.

majoras-maskThis legendary game finally being released to the Virtual Console also marks two truly grand events. First off, it celebrates the 300th retro release on Nintendo’s download service, making the Wii the only place to be for all of your old-school gaming needs.

Second, Majora’s Mask’s release means all applicable Zelda titles (NES, SNES, N64 entries) have been released onto the Virtual Console. To celebrate this, we are going to bring you reviews of every single entry onto the Virtual Console starting with the timeless original making our way to Majora’s Mask.

I’ve got a LOT of gaming to do.

  2. Color me far beyond excited!!!!!!

    My 64 broke when I was halfway through this game like 3 months ago (playthrough number 355512336864 I believe) and have since been having major withdrawals.

    I’m so cold…

    Can’t wait to buy this game and read your reviews!!!


  3. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not the best Zelda (a title that belongs to the one and only ALTTP for the SNES), but one of the greatest games ever made. As with all Zeldas, though.


  4. Yeah, Thomas, I think it’s safe to say everyone with a soul loves this game. Or everyone who’s ever played it anyway.
